Ring Of Honor (ROH) star Flip Gordon was recently interviewed on the WINCLY podcast to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Gordon talked about Being The Elite, the rumors of his friends Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks helping jumpstart All Elite Wrestling (AEW), and if it means his time on Being The Elite has come to an end. Here are the highlights:
Being The Elite: “It’s honestly such a fun time. Just like it shows through on the camera, we’re literally just having fun, but we’re telling stories. You can tell everybody’s just enjoying themselves,” Gordon said.
“It’s not ‘Oh gosh, we got to film Being The Elite.’ It’s, ‘Alright, let’s film BTE! What’s the next thing? What do we have to do today?’ Everybody’s excited to do it. It’s been a highlight of my career.”
The rumored startup AEW promotion and Cody and The Young Bucks’ involvement: “I am and I’m not. There’s been a lot of rumors out there in the wrestling world… But I’m just staying focused on my own career. They are my friends and they’ve helped me tremendously with the opportunity of being on Being The Elite to help me get my name out there to so many new fans,” Gordon said.
“But whatever they do, they have my full support and I’m happy for whatever they want to do next. I’m very thankful for the time I have been able to spend with them, but my focus is Ring of Honor. I’m with Ring of Honor until 2020, and my focus is building Ring of Honor as much as I can.”
If this means his time on Being The Elite will be coming to an end: “I guess it would be ‘to be continued.’ But Marty’s still gonna be in Ring of Honor, so maybe it’s ‘Marty and Flip take Ring of Honor.’ We’re still all really good friends, so I’m sure that we will continue to still do Being The Elite,” Gordon said.
“Nothing is guaranteed, but anything can also happen in this business, and that’s one of the cool things about wrestling.”
