    SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST is back for 2015! The Ring of Honor tradition returns November 13th in Milwaukee, WI and November 14th in Hopkins, MI. SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST is one of the most grueling tournaments in all of professional wrestling, where the winner has to endure two nights of competition against the top ROH stars. The prize? A future ROH World Championship opportunity!

    Past winners of this prestigious tournament include Delirious, Roderick Strong, "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin, Adam Cole, and current ROH World and Television Champion Jay Lethal. This year, the SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST field will be comprised of 18 of the biggest stars in Ring of Honor. On November 13th in Milwaukee, the first round of matches will consist of:

    - Two 4-Corner Survival Matches
    - Two Triple Threat Matches
    - Two Singles Matches

    One winner from each match Milwaukee will advance to the SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST 6-Man Elimination Match the following night on November 14th in Hopkins! Also, the final match in the Best of Five challenge series between Matt Sydal and ACH will also serve as a qualifying match for SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST.

    And can now, the entrants of the first Triple Threat match qualifier have been announced!


    TRIPLE THREAT
    "UNBREAKABLE" MICHAEL ELGIN VS. ADAM COLE VS. MOOSE w/ STOKELY HATHAWAY

    In the wild, moose are the largest species in the deer family, calm creatures that primarily feast on vegetation. In Ring of Honor, Moose is one the most explosive, impressive athletes to walk through its doors in quite some time. Through their differences, moose and Moose have one thing in common: a propensity to become aggressive if startled or threatened.

    Stokely Hathaway has primed Moose for a battle he has not seen before, with the stakes at an all-time high. Moose and “Big Stoke” will travel to Milwaukee, WI to send Moose into battle against two former Survival of the Fittest winners, former ROH World Champions Michael Elgin and Adam Cole!

    “Big Mike” is no stranger to Survival of the Fittest competition. In 2011, the brute from Toronto last eliminated Kyle O’Reilly in the SOTF Finals to walk out with a guaranteed ROH World Title match, vaulting Elgin into stardom. Elgin nearly became the only ROH star to repeat as SOTF winner, falling to Jay Lethal in the final. Elgin is equipped with a renewed vigor after a successful G1 Climax Tournament and the fans have taken notice. Elgin showed everyone at Best in the World 2015 that he can lock the former NFL star in his delayed vertical suplex and defeated the third combatant, Adam Cole, for the ROH World Championship at Best in the World 2014, a career-defining victory.

    But it would be simply unwise to write off Adam Cole. After returning from a devastating shoulder injury, Cole has let the world know that all is right in the Kingdom. Cole, no doubt, still remembers the taste of defeat Elgin left in his mouth following his ROH World Title loss in Nashville and certainly has no love lost for Moose with perhaps the perfect anecdote to Moose’s devastating rolling spear: a super kick square to the temple!

    These three men certainly all have history with one another which should make the match even more interesting for who will come out on top. In Lockport, NY, the three competed in a four corner survival match where all three had opportunities to win. Now, in Milwaukee, the three are competing for a spot the following night in Hopkins, MN where the stakes get their highest: a six-man Survival of the Fittest Finals contest for a guaranteed Ring of Honor World Title match!

    Will the deciding factor be Moose’s explosiveness, Elgin’s brute strength, or Cole’s cunning? Will Hathaway play a factor on the outside and should Moose and Elgin have eyes in the back of their heads watching for the Kingdom? The best way to find out is be there live in Milwaukee!
