EC3 vs. Flip Gordon added to ROH Best in the World


ROH has announced a new addition to the lineup for next month's Best in the World pay-per-view.

EC3 vs. Flip Gordon will take place at Best in the World on Sunday, July 11. The PPV is taking place at the Chesapeake Employers Insurance Arena in Baltimore, Maryland. It will be the first ROH show with fans in attendance since February 2020.

EC3 formerly hired Gordon as a mercenary during his feud with Jay Briscoe. EC3 lost to Jay at ROH's 19th Anniversary this March, but they shook hands after the match and showed each other respect. Gordon defeated Mark Briscoe at 19th Anniversary after hitting a low blow near the end of the match.

On ROH TV last month, EC3 & Gordon defeated The Briscoes after Gordon hit Mark with Jay's chain. EC3, who didn't see Gordon use the chain, pinned Mark to get the win. When he was informed what Gordon did during a post-match interview, EC3 promised that violence would be coming to Gordon.

EC3 later interrupted a promo by Gordon on ROH TV and told him, "You have been warned."

"In addition to this match being personal, it also could have implications for the ROH World Title picture," ROH wrote. "Gordon is owed a title shot and is No. 3 in the current rankings. EC3 recently stated that his mission is to become ROH World Champion." The ROH World Championship is currently held by Rush.

Here's the updated lineup for Best in the World:

  • Brody King vs. Jay Lethal
  • Last Man Standing match: Josh Woods vs. Silas Young
  • EC3 vs. Flip Gordon
