Injury updates on Chris Sabin, Flip Gordon


After Chris Sabin and Flip Gordon both suffered knee injuries over the weekend, Ring of Honor has issued an update on their conditions.

ROH announced that Sabin and Gordon will be undergoing MRIs this week to confirm the extent of their injuries.

ROH noted that it's believed that Sabin suffered a torn ACL in his right knee during Saturday's television tapings at Center Stage in Atlanta, Georgia. Sabin was facing Gordon, Shane Taylor, Luchasaurus, Rhett Titus, and Kenny King in a six-way match when the injury happened, and ROH wrote that Sabin "began clutching his knee after executing a super hurricanrana on Gordon. He was unable to finish the match and was helped to the back. "

Despite his history of ACL injuries, Sabin tweeted on Monday: "I'll be back."

ROH announced that it's believed Gordon will be out of action for a minimum of four weeks due to a possible MCL sprain in his right knee. While facing Tracy Williams at Honor Reigns Supreme in Concord, North Carolina on Sunday, Gordon grabbed his knee after hitting a single-leg dropkick into the corner. He rolled out of the ring shortly after hitting a springboard spear. The referee called the match off and Williams was declared the winner by stoppage.

PWG has announced that Gordon, who was originally supposed to face Bandido, is off their Hand of Doom show this Friday. ACH is replacing Gordon in the match with Bandido.

It appears that the injury will also take Gordon out of his scheduled match against Bandido at ROH's Road to G1 Supercard event in Dallas, Texas on January 24. Gordon was supposed to team with Colt Cabana in the Tag Wars tournament that's taking place at the Road to G1 Supercard shows in Texas this month.
