  1. Friday, November 7th, 2014 - Columbus, Ohio
    HUGE day of updates for SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST 2014! On November 7th, ROH's tournament tradition begins again in Columbus, OH. We have a ton of new matches for this night of round one action, as well as a huge non-tournament tag team attraction. Don't miss out on this historic tournament where the winner is not only the sole survivor, but he earns himself a future ROH World Championship opportunity!

    In professional wrestling, we often talk about clashes in style. But this first round match will be less of a clash in styles and more a total clash of personalities! Adam Cole claims he's the perfect representative of Ring of Honor. He DESERVES attention and accolades because he's the best looking, most confident, and most charismatic man on the roster. On the other hand, Delirious isn't exactly the most well spoken or poised athlete in ROH - when you can understand a single word he's speaking. This match might devolve into pure chaos!

    Adam Cole has been ROH Champion before and he's itching to earn another shot. But as erratic as Delirious is, he's also a former SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST winner. In 2006, he went all the way through the tournament and came out on top. That experience edge might turn the tables. Whoever wins here advances to the six man elimination finals the next night in Toledo!

    Another former SURVIVOR OF THE FITTEST winner competes in this first round match! Roderick Strong won the tournament in 2005, so he knows what it takes to persevere. But he's going up against a man hungry for opportunities and recently forging his own path. Strong and Tadarius Thomas are were formerly associated with The Decade together. One would think they know each other's styles and weaknesses better than others after months in close proximity. But since Tadarius broke out on his own, he's been more aggressive than ever.

    And what better way to establish you're an athlete who can stand alone than to be victorious at SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST! But he's going to have to get through a former winner first. And Roderick Strong is even more than that. He's a former ROH World Champion and winning this tournament will get him one critical step closer to reclaiming championship gold.

    No one thought Tommaso Ciampa would be anywhere near SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST in 2014! Coming of a much deserved suspension for attacking ROH staff and officials, Ciampa has been begging for attention and swearing he'll adhere to the zero tolerance stipulations of his reinstatement. So Nigel McGuinness decided to give him the opportunity to compete in this tournament - on his absolute best behavior.

    Caprice Coleman has the experience advantage over nearly everyone on the ROH roster. He's a seasoned veteran of the ring. But while he's come close in the past, he's never won a title in Ring of Honor. A victory against Ciampa would propel him to the finals and get him in contention for an championship opportunity. But getting through Ciampa is easier said than done. While the "Sicilian Psychopath" has ALWAYS been unstable, this zero tolerance policy hanging over his head combined with his always increasing frustrations makes him completely unpredictable!

    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.
