ROH Honor for All results: Nick Aldis vs. Flip Gordon

Image: NWA. Live notes from Lee Thomas contributed to this report.

- Jay Lethal, who recently denied the allegations that he told Taeler Hendrix she was taken off television due to not sleeping with him, was conspicuous by his absence as he was scheduled to defend the ROH World Championship against Silas Young at one point. It will be interesting to see if he's at tonight's TV tapings in Atlanta.

Hendrix made the allegations earlier this month after departing ROH in April 2017. She claimed that she left "once the office did nothing" about the situation.

- Dark match: The Boys defeated The Carnies (Nick Iggy & Kerry Awful)

The Boys won with a middle turnbuckle codebreaker. The Carnies had a decent amount of fans since they are fairly well known in local circles.

- ROH Television Champion Punishment Martinez defeated Scorpio Sky to retain his title

Martinez retained with the South of Heaven chokeslam shortly after hitting a stomp on the apron.

- Women of Honor Champion Sumie Sakai defeated Karen Q in a Proving Ground match

Karen Q would have gotten a future title shot if she won, but Sakai pinned her here.

Q brought a chair into the ring and put the Women of Honor title belt on the apron. When the referee took the chair, she threw the belt to Sakai and faked like Sakai was trying to use it. Q attempted to capitalize on the distraction, but Sakai countered into the pin.

- Jonathan Gresham defeated Shane Taylor, Kenny King, and Chris Sabin in a four corner survival match

Taylor took King and Sabin out with a cannonball off the apron before throwing them into the guardrails. Gresham then dove like he was going for a suicide dive but jumped on Taylor and put him in a sleeper. He had been going for the sleeper earlier in the match. Taylor got back in the ring with Gresham still having the hold locked on. The referee called for the bell as Taylor passed out.

It was hyped that Gresham put himself in TV title contention with the win.

- Chuckie T defeated Bully Ray by DQ

Before the match, Bully Ray disingenuously said he has no problems with Taylor because he's not a young boy and came up in the business correctly, is a fan of some of the things Taylor has done, and mentioned that PWG is kind of like ECW. He said he'd be more than happy to wrestle Taylor, but Taylor asked if Bully thinks he's an idiot. He said he's seen what Bully has done and none of the wrestlers want him in ROH anymore.

Bully pushed referee Todd Sinclair into the ropes to crotch Taylor near the start of the match. Bully then low blowed Taylor for the disqualification.

Bully pushed Sinclair down after and started hitting Taylor with a chain. Colt Cabana tried to make the save but was beaten down as well. Trent Barreta made his return from injury, spearing Bully and chasing him off. 

- Silas Young, Beer City Bruiser & The Dawgs (Rhett Titus & Will Ferrara) defeated Cheeseburger, Eli Isom, Ryan Nova & FR Josie

Bruiser pinned Josie with a frog splash following a powerbomb from Young.

- Marty Scurll defeated Vinny Marseglia

Matt Taven was supposed to face Scurll, but he came out without wrestling gear on and holding a bag. He said the real ROH World title was in it, claiming that the company is holding him down and he should have won the last title match. He refused to reveal the title in a city like Nashville.

Taven said Scurll has failed whenever he's challenged for the title and doesn't deserve to face the real champion. He joined in on commentary after bringing Marseglia out to face Scurll.

Scurll countered into a chicken wing for the submission finish. Taven and TK O'Ryan ran in to attack Scurll after, with Cody Rhodes coming in to make the save. Officials broke things up until only Cody and O'Ryan were left.

- Cody defeated TK O'Ryan

Brandi Rhodes and Burnard the Business Bear came out during the match to accompany Cody. O'Ryan taunted Brandi and hit Cody with the Six-Man Tag Team title belt when Brandi tried to get into the ring, but he only got a two count.

O'Ryan shoved the referee and the referee shoved him back, with Cody rolling up O'Ryan for a near fall. Cody then hit Cross Rhodes to win.

- NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis defeated Flip Gordon to retain his title

Cody stuck around on commentary for this match. The story of it was that Gordon didn't win the title and failed to secure his place on All In, but he seemingly earned Cody's respect.

The match was restarted at one point. Aldis hit a piledriver and an elbow drop, but Gordon's foot was on the rope when Aldis pinned him. Cody joined the referees who were discussing the finish, pointing out that the pin shouldn't have counted. Gordon got a close near fall with the Star Spangled Stunner, but he passed out in a cloverleaf for the finish.

Both Aldis and Cody showed Gordon respect after the match. Cody raised Gordon's hand and then left, with Bully Ray coming out and attacking Gordon to continue their feud.

- The Young Bucks defeated ROH Tag Team Champions The Briscoes and SoCal Uncensored (Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian) in a non-title three-way match

All of the Bullet Club guys on the show were really over. The Young Bucks hit the Meltzer Driver on Mark Briscoe to win a fun main event.

After the match, Daniels and Kazarian hung around while The Young Bucks put them over on the microphone. SCU were almost babyface-like in their thanks, but they did their gimmick where they said Nashville was the worst town they've ever wrestled in.
