Flip Gordon loses NWA title match at ROH Honor for All

While there were some developments, the storyline of Flip Gordon trying to get booked for All In wasn't settled at ROH Honor for All.

Gordon unsuccessfully challenged for Nick Aldis' NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship at Friday night's show in Nashville, Tennessee. But the story of the match was Gordon seemingly earning Cody Rhodes' respect.

There was an angle where the match was restarted at one point. Aldis got the pin after hitting a piledriver and elbow drop, but Gordon's foot was on the rope. Cody was on commentary and joined the referees who were discussing the finish, pointing out that the pin shouldn't have been counted. Gordon got a near fall with the Star Spangled Stunner but ended up passing out in a cloverleaf.

Both Aldis and Cody showed respect to Gordon after the match. Cody (who wasn't mic'd) spoke to Gordon in the ring and raised his hand. Bully Ray then attacked Gordon after Cody left, continuing the feud they've been having in ROH.

Cody is set to challenge for the NWA title at All In on September 1 at the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. The only other match that's been announced at this point is Kazuchika Okada vs. Marty Scurll.
