The news comes after Flip Gordon was injured during a match with Tracy Williams at Ring of Honor’s Honor Reigns Supreme event last night in Concord, NC. Gordon appeared to have injured his knee while performing a running dropkick. The match continued for a few moments before it was stopped after Gordon rolled out of the ring in pain.
Ring of Honor General Manager Greg Gilleland told POST Wrestling that Gordon, along with Chris Sabin, suffered an injury at the event. It is unknown how severe both injuries are at the moment.
"The severity for each injury will not be known until further tests are concluded, but we wish them a speedy recovery and hope they can return to the ROH ring soon.”

ACH will be making his first appearance in a PWG ring since Mystery Vortex IV on December 16th, 2016 in a match against Trevor Lee. Since then, ACH has appeared on several in SoCal outside of PWG, including NJPW’s Fighting Spirit Unleashed in Long Beach on September 30th, 2018 and the Lion’s Break Project 1 events in Anaheim on November 10th & 11th, 2018.

ACH’s appearance at PWG Hand of Doom could also possibly be his last, as it has been reported that he has signed with WWE.

At CWF Mid-Atlantic’s event in Gibsonville, NC on Saturday night, Lee announced that he officially signed a contract with WWE. Lee is currently scheduled to challenge Jeff Cobb for the PWG World Championship in the main event on Friday at Hand of Doom.
