Ring of Honor announced the return of the ROH Survival of the Fittest tournament on ROH Week by Week today. Ring of Honor gave fans the choice of which classic event should be brought back through a poll on the ROH The Experience Facebook page. By fan vote, the Survival of the Fittest was the winner. The tournament will begin in two weeks on Ring of Honor TV.
The ROH Survival of the Fittest field will consist of Rey Horus, Flamita, Eli Isom, Dak Draper, Bandido, Tyler Bateman, Brian Johnson, Sledge, Chris Dickinson, O’Shay Edwards, Danhausen, and Rhett Titus. None of these competitors has ever held the ROH World Championship or is currently ranked in the world title picture. The winners of each match will meet in a six-way elimination match. The winner of the final match will receive a future shot at the ROH World Championship.
