Earlier this month Flip Gordon went down with an injury at the Ring Of Honor (ROH) “Honor Reigns Supreme” event from Concord, North Carolina during a match against “Hot Sauce” Tracy Williams. He hit a dropkick on Williams in the corner and began to favor his knee afterward.
He was in so much pain that the match was then called off. ROH has confirmed that Gordon suffered a full MCL tear on his right knee. Despite being sidelined for a significant amount of time, he’s expected to be back in time for the ROH and New Japan Pro Wrestling’s (NJPW) G1 Supercard from Madison Square Garden on April 6th:
“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.”
