Speaking of people who signed surprisingly long-term Ring of Honor deals, ROH announced that Flip Gordon has signed a new multi-year deal with the company. "Ring of Honor has been my home for the last three years and I'm very excited to say that I'm not going anywhere for years and years to come, because 'The Mercenary' has signed a new multi-year, million-dollar deal," Gordon said in the press release.
