Ring of Honor has revealed the participants for Survival of the Fittest 2021.
On today's episode of ROH Week By Week, it was announced that this year's Survival of the Fittest will begin in two weeks. The tournament will take place on ROH television throughout June. It will feature six singles matches, with the winners of those matches advancing to a multi-man elimination match. The tournament winner will receive a future shot at the ROH World Championship, which is currently held by Rush.
Here are the first round matches for the tournament:
Left side of the bracket --
- Rey Horus vs. Flamita
- Eli Isom vs. Dak Draper
- Bandido vs. Bateman
Right side of the bracket --
- Brian Johnson vs. Sledge
- Chris Dickinson vs. O'Shay Edwards
- Danhausen vs. Rhett Titus
It was stated on ROH Week By Week that the participants were chosen because they've all never held the ROH World Championship and aren't currently in the World title rankings.
Survival of the Fittest was first held in 2004 and most recently took place in 2018. It won a poll on the ROH The Experience Facebook page that asked fans which of ROH’s annual events they would most like to see return in 2021.
