ROH Survival of the Fittest 2018 will take place tonight at 7 p.m ET in Columbus, Ohio, and Ring of Honor fans should be prepared for several entertaining qualifying matchups to set up the Six-Way Elimination match in the main event of the show.
Streaming live on HonorClub this evening at 7:00 p.m. ET, ROH Survival of the Fittest 2018 promises to be an action-packed show. There will be six qualifying matches during the Pay Per View, with the winner of each match being inserted into a Six-Way Elimination match in the show’s main event.
These qualifying matches are considered first-round matches in the “Survival of the Fittest” tournament, with the elimination match in the main event being the finals. The winner of the six-man finals match will earn a shot at the ROH World Championship, which has been held by Jay Lethal for 126 days.
HonorClub subscribers can stream the show when it airs live. A subscription to HonorClub costs $9.99 a month, $99.99 a year, or $119.99 for the special VIP package.
Survival of the Fittest can also be purchased on Fite.TV for $9.99.
The Elite (Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks Nick and Matt Jackson) will defend the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Championship against The Kingdom‘s Matt Taven, Vinny Marseglia, and TK O’Ryan. This should be a fun one.
Jay Lethal and Jeff Cobb will team up to take on SoCal Uncensored’s Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky. Cobb is the man to watch in this match, because he’s on fire, having recently won the PWG World Championship.
Below are the First-Round Matchups in the ROH Survival of the Fittest tournament.
Jonathan Gresham vs. Tracy Williams
PJ Black vs. Luchasaurus
Flip Gordon vs. Andrew Everett vs. Guerrero Maya Jr.
Christopher Daniels vs. Beer City Bruiser
Marty Scurll vs. Silas Young vs. Stuka Jr.
Dalton Castle vs. Hangman Page vs. Colin Delaney
The winners of each of these six first-round matchups will face each other in a Six-Way Elimination match for an opportunity at Lethal’s ROH World Championship.
All in all, this looks like a fun night of wrestling, and the combination of tournament-style matchups and an elimination match in the main event looks great. I wish there were a couple of Women of Honor matches here, though, especially because Sumie Sakai’s recent title defense against Tenille Dashwood at Death Before Dishonor was quite good.
ROH’s next big show is Final Battle on Dec.14, where Sakai will defend the title against three opponents in a Four Corner Survival Match.
Next week, ROH will stream its Global Wars: Buffalo show at 7:30 p.m. ET for HonorClub subscribers, and that show contains some amazing matchups like Tetsuya Naito and SANADA vs. The Young Bucks.
