Well, the dream is over. For Flip Gordon, tonight was his final shot at getting the booking he’s wanted all year – a spot on the illustrious Super Indie card ALL IN on September 1 in Chicago, that already features such names as Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada, Lucha Underground Champion Pentagon Jr., NWA World Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis, Tessa Blanchard, Chelsea Green, and so many more. At an indie event with Wrestle Pro in New Jersey tonight, there was a Cody’s Golden Ticket intergender tag team match and whichever team won, both members would be booked at ALL IN. On one side, was Impact Knockout Madison Rayne and CZW World Heavyweight Champion The MJF (Maxwell Jacob Friedman), while on the other side of the ring, it was Flip Gordon and his partner, Brandi Rhodes (she’s actually already ALL IN, so Flip really had the most to lose). Yes, his partner was the very wife of the man actively trying to block Flip from attending the event.

Surprisingly, the woman that Flip trusted implicitly yet was married to Cody Rhodes, lead to Flip losing the match.

It didn’t take long for the victors to rub it in either…

So here we stand, nearly four months to the date for ALL IN in Chicago, and now Flip Gordon has lost his last chance to get on the card. And he just had such a great Best of the Super Juniors with NJPW too. I mean, there simply couldn’t be any other way he may get on the card, is there? Nah, didn’t think so.
