Flip Gordon On Which WWE Star Urged Him to Use His Military Background in ROH, Who He Models His Career After

Ring of Honor star Flip Gordon recently spoke with SportsKeeda and below are some interview highlights.

Was there ever pressure to incorporate your military background into wrestling? Or is that something that happened organically?

“At first I didn’t want people to know I was in the [U.S.] Army because I was afraid it had been way too overdone. I was talking with Maria Kanellis after a show and she told me I should start to incorporate it because it’ll come off more natural, and she was right.”

Is there a wrestler, past or present, that you look as having had the sort of career that you hope to have had? Someone that you model your work ethic after?

“I definitely try to model my work ethic after guys like John Cena, A.J. Styles, and The Rock. All very successful and never made excuses, just busted their asses.”
