Flip Gordon Isn’t Interested In Signing With A Major Wrestling Company Right Now, Whether He’s Reached Out To AEW

July 6, 2023 0 By JohnValbyNation

Former ROH star Flip Gordon recently joined Piers Austin for an in-depth conversation about all things pro-wrestling, including his thoughts on potentially signing with a major company, why he didn’t mind skipping WWE developmental, whether he has spoke to anyone in AEW and more. Highlights from the interview can be found below.


Says he has not heard from AEW or ROH since he got released from ROH prior to Tony Khan purchasing the brand:

No, I haven’t had any conversations since I got released from Ring of Honor with AEW. But I haven’t asked either. I haven’t reached out to anybody to ask. I feel like if they think I’m good enough, they should reach out to me. Maybe that’s wrong for thinking that, but every other time in my career, the company’s reaching out to me. So I’m just doing what I’m doing. Honestly, I have zero interest in wrestling for TV right now. I’m still experimenting and trying new things and trying to figure out who I am as a wrestler, who I want to be as a wrestler, and I’m having a hell of a time doing it. I’m having so much fun.

Says he is more interested in coming into a company on a handshake deal, that way he doesn’t get bogged down or lost in the shuffle:

Not right now, but in the future, absolutely. Right now, I have a lot of goals that I want to do and some of those goals, I can’t do if I’m confined to a contract. Would I love to come in and tell a story, do a handshake deal for three-to-six months or however long the story is, absolutely. I’m 100% for that because I want to tell great stories and have great matches. But do I want to sign a two-or-three year deal, come in and then be off TV or not have many ideas? It’s like no, if I’m coming in, I want to have an idea. Have something for me. Because if not, I’m just gonna do my own thing on the independents, make my own schedule. I don’t want to just be flown in just to sit and chill and see other people doing what I want to do. I’d rather be out wrestling.

How he is in no rush to sign anywhere, nor is he unhappy that he didn’t go the WWE route:

I’m in no rush. I don’t have to go that route, straight to developmental and then maybe get released, and go through depression. I’m like, no, I’ll just do it my own way, have fun, wrestle, and get as good as I can get. If I get a great offer, I’ll take it. If not, no big deal. I’m having fun doing what I’m loving doing.
