Ring Of Honor has provided an update on Flip Gordon’s injury!
It’s been nearly a couple of weeks now since Ring Of Honor’s last events, Saturday Night At Center Stage in Atlanta and Honor Reigns Supreme in Concord, North Carolina, however the promotion is gearing up for three shows in Texas this weekend with the Road To G1 Supercard.
While a number of matches have been announced for the shows, we already know that a change needed to be made to one after Flip Gordon suffered a knee injury back at Honor Reigns Supreme (see the story here). During his match against ‘Hot Sauce’ Tracy Williams, Flip went down with the injury and the match had to be stopped, but we haven’t gotten any updates on the severity of the issue, that is until today.
Ring Of Honor has shed some more light on Gordon’s status, issuing the following:
“An MRI exam revealed that Ring of Honor star Flip Gordon suffered a full MCL tear in his right knee during a match at Honor Reigns Supreme in Concord, N.C., on Jan. 13.
The good news is that the timetable for Gordon’s recovery means he should be able to compete at Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s historic G1 Supercard show at sold-out Madison Square Garden on April 6.
The injury occurred when Gordon hit a running dropkick in the corner on his opponent, Tracy Williams. Gordon tried to continue the match, but his knee gave out and the referee called for the bell.”
