WWE is continuing to sign top independent wrestlers.
It seems like every few months WWE has been announcing that they’ve signed a new talent from the independent wrestling scene.
WWE announced the signings of names like former Ring of Honor World Champion Adam Cole, Kyle O'Reilly, Bobby Fish, Donovan Dijak, Lio Rush and Shayna Baszler this year.
Flip Gordon teased on Twitter that he may be joining the sports entertainment company. He wrote on Twitter,
He will likely be placed in NXT, which Triple H overseas, once he signs with the sports entertainment company.
In June 2012, WWE ceased operating Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), its developmental promotion in Tampa, Florida and began running all of its developmental events and operations at Full Sail University under the WWE NXT banner.
While its primary purpose is to serve as a developmental division for WWE, the promotion has come to be viewed by wrestling writers and fans as its own distinct entity as it serves as a third brand complementing Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live.
Gordon made waves in the wrestling world in the New England wrestling scene following his training at the New England Pro Wrestling Academy.
Just two years following his first match, Gordon made his mark at a ROH tryout camp and earned a contract following a very impressive ROH TV debut.
Gordon moved to Boston to chase his pro wrestling dream but his meteoric rise started in the heartland of America. Gordon was raised in Kalispell, MT where he was a four-time state champion wrestler.
Gordon became a gymnast and mascot Cecil the Cardinal for North Idaho College while pursuing a degree in criminal justice.
ordon would join the Idaho National Guard before moving back to his city of birth, Boston, where he became a C4 and explosives expert as a Combat Engineer.
Gordon currently works for Ring of Honor. Gordon recently spoke to Marc Madison of The Wrestling News Hub Magazine.
In the interview, Gordon opens up on his first match with Oney Lorcan, who is currently in WWE NXT.
"May 6th, 2015. He was one of the best on the indies that I wrestled against. It was only a couple of months before he was picked up. It was crazy, and I think about this match like it was yesterday. I can't remember everything that happened in the match, but I do remember I learned so much from that one match with him because of how much of a professional he was.
I had no business being in the ring with him. He definitely took care of me and taught me so much that I still remember to this day. There are little things from that match that I still learn from because of him. It was really cool. He taught me things from a selling point and listening to the crowd."
