    We are less than two weeks from 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 2015 on November 7th and 8th.

    The first night of SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST will feature the potential show stealing, high flying battle between MATT SYDAL and ACH! But today we have more information on what's stacking up for Columbus on the 7th - and it's going to get violent!


    Just confirmed, 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!


    We can now confirm another first round match for SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST 2014! In a battle to advance in the tournament, Adam Page will take on Cedric Alexander. This match pits two of the youngest, most promising stars of ROH against each other. And one of them has a brand new attitude. Both Page and Alexander have found themselves embroiled with The Decade. But while Cedric refused to be bullied, Adam Page decided to bend under the pressure and humiliation, becoming one of The Decade's "young boys" and supposedly learning humility the hard way.

    Adam Page learned something, all right. In recent weeks, it's become more and more clear that the abrasive tactics of men like BJ Whitmer are rubbing off on the formerly respectful, quiet Page. What does this newfound aggression mean for his in-ring prospects? And have enmity The Decade seems to harbor against young athletes like Cedric Alexander hardened Adam Page as well? On paper, this match seems like an athletic showcase between two rising stars who want to advance in this prestigious tournament - and it certainly will be. But as the hostilities grow, Page vs. Alexander might be more of a war than anyone could expect!


    You saw the announcement from Nigel McGuinness. This year's SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST tournament is bringing you one of the rare in-ring appearances of DELIRIOUS! But while he might not spend as much time between the ropes as he used to, Delirious is FAR from unprepared for this tournament! In fact, Delirious WON Survival of the Fittest 2006!

    And don't forget...there's still ONE MORE SPOT left in this historic tournament. The finals are set for November 8th in Toledo and it will be a traditional SIX MAN ELIMINATION MATCH! This is a test of endurance that determines who really deserves to be victorious in SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST!
