    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 Final qualifier have been announced!

    RODERICK STRONG VS. CEDRIC ALEXANDER

    “Mr. ROH” Roderick Strong has done it all in Ring of Honor, including holding all three championships that comprise ROH’s Triple Crown. Strong also has the distinction of competing in all but one Survival of the Fittest competitions and emerging victorious in the 2005 edition where he dispatched former and future ROH champions Samoa Joe, Jay Lethal, and Austin Aries to earn a future ROH World Title shot.

    Roddy is riding a wave of momentum, after capturing the ROH World Television Championship in a match that will air in the coming weeks on ROH TV.

    Strong continues his yearly tradition of competing in Survival of the Fittest in Milwaukee where he will stand across the squared circle from Cedric Alexander. While the fans vocally disapprove of his allegiance with the intellectual but devious Veda Scott, the results speak for themselves. After seeking professional guidance from Scott, Alexander became the first man to defeat Moose not once but twice, even if both victorious were by less than scrupulous means.

    Nevertheless, this is a bout put together by ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness with an expressed goal of pitting the present versus the future for a spot in the SOTF Finals in Hopkins, MN. The two have already engaged in classic encounters before, with Alexander getting the best of Strong in their two most recent encounters at Best in the World 2014 and Global Wars 2014. But while Alexander has gained even more experience and the mischievous Scott in his corner, Strong is in the best shape of his career, re-establishing himself as a top ROH championship contender in bouts where he took Jay Lethal to the limit!

    Will the difference in this clash of stars hitting their stride be Scott on the outside? Has she trained Alexander to counter Strong’s End of Days and Sick Kick, moves he has captured ROH gold with? And is Alexander confident enough in his arsenal of high-impact moves like the Lumbar Check or the Kick to Kill to fight a fair match or will the temptation be too great to continue his cheating ways? We will find out in Milwaukee!
