Ring Of Honor and Being The Elite Star Flip Gordon has re-injured his right knee only a few days after being medically cleared to compete by the doctors.
This news was released by ROH itself. They sent out a press release detailing the condition of his knee while also revealing his status for their upcoming G1 Supercard Show.
Flip apparently injured his knee while wrestling for Over the Top Wrestling in Northern Ireland and according to ROH, he won’t be wrestling at their upcoming Madison Square Garden show.
While the exact details on his injury are not available, there are concerns that Gordon has suffered “bucket handle” meniscus tear, which will keep him out of action for somewhere between 4 to 6 months:
“There is concern that Gordon may have suffered a “bucket handle” meniscus tear, which would require surgery and keep him out of action for four-to-six months. The extent of the injury will not be known until the results of Gordon’s MRI exam are in.”
An injury is always bad for any star but to make matters worse, Flip Gordon had only returned from a knee injury he suffered in January, earlier this month.
He was diagnosed with a full tear in his MCL and after staying away from action for almost 3 months, Flip had given the news of his clearance on Twitter on 19th March.
