Ring Of Honor comments on injuries suffered over the weekend!
Over the weekend, Ring Of Honor was back in action for the first time in 2019 with their Saturday Night At Center Stage television tapings (see spoilers here), followed last night by Honor Reigns Supreme (check out Andrew’s Ratings & Notes).
As was noted, Chris Sabin suffered a knee injury at the television tapings after taking a bump during his match, then needed help to get from the arena to the backstage area (read the story here). Unfortunately, that wasn’t the only health-related problem to come out of the weekend as Flip Gordon’s match at Honor Reigns Supreme against Tracy Williams had to be stopped after Flip succumbed to a knee injury.
Today, while there are still no specifics yet, Ring Of Honor issued the following on both stars:
Unfortunately, Ring of Honor can confirm that both Flip Gordon and Chris Sabin suffered knee injuries during this past weekend’s events that left them each in significant pain. The severity for each injury will not be known until further tests are concluded, but we wish them a speedy recovery and hope they can return to the ROH ring soon.
EA’s Take: Hopefully for both guys’ sakes, they’re nothing serious. Doesn’t sound like it though. You have to feel bad for Sabin considering his history of knee problems, his last one while he was in TNA was really heartbreaking because he had JUST returned from the same thing. As for Flip, also disappointing because after what The Elite did for him last year and now with them gone, you’d have to imagine ROH figured him into some important things. At least they should have, in my opinion.
