    THIS WEEKEND marks the return of an ROH tradition and one of the most prestigious tournaments in professional wrestling: SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST! Over the course of two action packed nights in Columbus and Toledo, the stars of ROH will battle each other to determine who is the only survivor! Additionally, each night will see its share of incredible non-tournament action, delivering match after match of the best professional wrestling on the planet.

    The most historic tournament in Ring of Honor has been won by legendary athletes such as Bryan Danielson, Delirious, Tyler Black, and Jay Lethal. This year, the field is comprised of a sweeping variety of athletes representing every style and alliance in ROH. Within the list of competitors you'll find first-time participants standing toe-to-toe with past victors! It truly is anyone's game this year when ROH presents SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST 2014 on November 7th and 8th.

    - TAG TEAM SHOWDOWN: CHRISTOPHER DANIELS & FRANKIE KAZARIAN VS JIMMY JACOBS & BJ WHITMER

    The tensions between The Addiction and The Decade are far from new. From the moment Daniels & Kazarian arrived in ROH as a team, Jimmy Jacobs has been extremely vocal in his discontent over the opportunities and attention The Addiction receive. Most insultingly, - at least to The Decade - their very first match in Ring of Honor saw them challenge for the World Tag Team Championship. According to Jacobs and Whitmer, those who have been loyal to ROH and toiled here for years deserve these opportunities and it's a disgrace that The Addiction just strolled right in.

    Meanwhile, Daniels and Kazarian have made clear that they're here to compete against the best the world has to offer and aren't turning down a fight. The hostilities have been building and now we have a TAG TEAM SHOWDOWN in Columbus! And with TAG WARS looming at the end of November, this match will showcase why ROH has the best tag team scene in professional wrestling today.

    - JAY & MARK BRISCOE VS. MATT TAVEN & MICHAEL BENNETT W/ MARIA KANELLIS

    Night One will be headlined by non-tournament action and what might be the most heated rivalry in ROH: The Briscoes vs. The Kingdom! Adam Cole and Jay Briscoe have been going at it for over a year and their issues are far from settled. But on November 7th, The Kingdom will be represented by the new team of Michael Bennett and MATT TAVEN when they take on Dem Boys in the main event. And this is no ordinary tag match. Thanks to the constant interference (and constant brutality) anytime The Briscoes and The Kingdom get near each other, Nigel McGuinness has declared that this match be NO DISQUALIFICATION!

    With Adam Cole entered into the tournament, it falls to Michael Bennett and Matt Taven to handle Kingdom business. Obviously, Taven is a new addition to this alliance...but the coming of "Matt" was much heralded by Bennett and Maria for weeks before Taven's new allegiance was revealed. Now this new team will be tested against the most legendary team in the history of ROH - and Dem Boys hate The Kingdom more and more every day!

    Night Two of SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST 2014 will hit Toledo, OH on November 8th! In addition to some non-tournament tag action, you will see some of the competitors eliminated on Night One competing in unique matches we can't even confirm yet! And, of course, the night will be capped off with the finals of SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST. The tournament ends in a six way elimination match where you truly have to SURVIVE to win!

    At SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST: NIGHT 2, we won't know the exact matches scheduled until the conclusion of the preliminary matches the night before in Columbus. It all depends on who advance to the six man elimination finals!

    - MATT TAVEN VS. MATT SYDAL or ACH

    - MICHAEL BENNETT W/ MARIA KANELLIS VS. TOMMASO CIAMPA or CAPRICE COLEMAN

    - ADAM PAGE or CEDRIC ALEXANDER VS. JAY LETHAL or HANSON

    - MOOSE & R.D. EVANS w/VEDA SCOTT vs. JIMMY JACOBS & BJ WHITMER

    #TheNewStreak keeps getting hotter and hotter! As R.D. Evans approaches the turning point of 173-0, every single match is more important than the last. Veda Scott has ensured that ALL of R.D.'s victories contribute to #TheNewStreak, and his team with MOOSE is obviously undefeated as well. He even has an ROH World TV Title shot lined up for GLORY BY HONOR! In Toledo, they take on two of the longest tenured veterans of ROH in Jimmy Jacobs and BJ Whitmer.

    How exactly do Jacobs and Whitmer feel about the pomp and pageantry of the #TheNewStreak? We're sure to find out on November 8th! On top of that, Moose is a rookie phenomenon spearing his way through the competition, and that has to be an issue for these veterans who constantly bully others for not "paying their dues." But bullying the "young boys" is a little bit different than trying to push around a gigantic former offensive lineman! Will #TheNewStreak live on in Toledo?

    THE BRISCOES VS. "THE FALLEN ANGEL" CHRISTOPHER DANIELS & FRANKIE KAZARIAN

    Even since The Addiction came to ROH, they've been itching to face all the teams Ring of Honor has to offer - any and all competition! They've already taken on reDRagon and The Young Bucks, among others. But they still haven't gotten a crack at the most legendary tag team in ROH history - The Briscoes. That all changes in Toledo with this first time ever match!

    The Briscoes ARE tag team wrestling in Ring of Honor. Whether or not they're chasing mutual gold or focusing on their singles careers, Jay and Mark can come together at a moment's notice and work together as a team - as brothers. Currently, Jay Biscoe is the ROH World Champion. But when the time comes to team up as Dem Boys, the champ is always ready!

    The Addiction and The Briscoes teamed up at DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR to take on reDRagon and The Young Bucks. But until now, they've never been on opposite sides of the ring. This is another "dream match" that everyone has been waiting for! And you can be there LIVE for this and the finals of SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST 2014! For tickets to Toledo on November 8th, click HERE!
