ROH Survival of the Fittest tournament returning in June

Ring of Honor's Survival of the Fittest tournament is making its return next month.

ROH has announced that the Survival of the Fittest tournament will return on ROH TV this June. The tournament will feature a series of qualifying matches, with the winners of those bouts advancing to a multi-man elimination match to decide the tournament winner.

The winner of Survival of the Fittest will receive a future shot at the ROH World Championship, which is currently held by Rush.

"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," ROH's Kevin Eck wrote.

"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."

ROH will also be holding a Women's World Championship tournament this summer. Rok-C, Angelina Love, Miranda Alize, and Trish Adora are the first four entrants that have been announced for it.
