Next week's Ring of Honor will feature the first match in the Survival of the Fittest tournament while Silas Young and Josh Woods will face off in a Pure rules match.
The 12-man tournament will play out weekly throughout June and will crown the next top contender for ROH World Champion Rush. The winners of six singles matches will then advance to a multi-man elimination match. It's the first time this tournament has happened since 2018.
The kickoff for the tournament begins on ROH TV this upcoming weekend with Rey Horus vs. Flamita.
Both men are coming off a loss in a three-way to Bandido at March's 19th Anniversary Show. Horus' last singles win in ROH came at December's Final Battle over Dalton Castle while Flamita defeated Bandido in a singles match in late-April.
Next week will also feature Woods vs. Young in a Pure rules match. After Young turned on Woods several weeks ago with a chair shot to the head followed by a singles win last week, Woods confronted Young backstage for cheating. A confident Young said he could beat him in a Pure rules match which Woods laughed at and accepted.
