ROH Announces Survival Of The Fittest 2021
The tournament was last held in 2018
Ring of Honor have announced that the Survival of the Fittest tournament is set to return.
Scheduled to start in June 2021, the tournament will consist of qualifying rounds on ROH TV, before a multi-person elimination to decide the winner of the tournament. The winner will receive a future ROH World Title match, with the belt currently in the possession of two-time ROH World Champion Rush.
ROH’s Kevin Eck said the following about the tournament’s return:
"You asked for the Survival of the Fittest tournament to come back and the ROH Board of Directors listened. The tournament returns in June on ROH TV.
"Originating in 2004 and last held in 2018, the tournament is composed of a series of qualifying matches, with the winners meeting in a multi-man elimination match to determine the overall winner. The lone survivor will be rewarded with a future shot at the ROH World Championship. Past winners of Survival of the Fittest include Bryan Danielson, Tyler Black, Jay Lethal and Adam Cole.
"Survival of the Fittest was the overwhelming winner of a poll on the ROH The Experience Facebook page that asked which of ROH’s annual events fans would most like to see return in 2021.”
