The only star in the history of Ring of Honor to be an active member of the armed services and hail from Montana, “Flip” has one of the most innovative and unique skill sets in wrestling. Raised in Kalispell, Montana, Travis was a four-time state champion wrestler. He became a gymnast and mascot Cecil the Cardinal for North Idaho College while pursuing a degree in criminal justice. Gordon would join the Idaho National Guard before moving back to his city of birth, Boston, where he became a C4 and explosives expert as a Combat Engineer. Gordon made waves in the wrestling world in the New England wrestling scene following his training at the New England Pro Wrestling Academy. Just two years following his first match, and spending most of that time honing his craft on the independent scene, Gordon made his mark at a ROH tryout camp and earned a contract following a very impressive ROH TV debut.
Travis appeared on Special: Ring of Honor Final Battle 2017.
