ROH SOTF winner to get World title shot at Best in the World

ROH has revealed when the winner of this year’s Survival of the Fittest tournament will be getting their title shot.

The winner of Survival of the Fittest will challenge for Rush’s ROH World Championship in the main event of next month’s Best in the World pay-per-view. The PPV is taking place at Chesapeake Employers Insurance Arena in Baltimore, Maryland on Sunday, July 11.

The Survival of the Fittest finals are airing on this weekend’s episode of ROH TV. Demonic Flamita, Eli Isom, Bandido, Brian Johnson, Chris Dickinson, and Rhett Titus are facing off in a six-way elimination match to determine the winner of the tournament.

ROH stated that this year’s Survival of the Fittest participants were chosen because they’ve all never held the ROH World Championship and aren’t currently in the World title rankings. Flamita defeated Rey Horus in the first round, Isom defeated Dak Draper, Bandido defeated Bateman, Johnson defeated Sledge, Dickinson defeated O’Shay Edwards, and Titus defeated Danhausen.

Best in the World will be the first ROH show with fans in attendance since February 2020. Here’s what’s been announced for the PPV thus far:

ROH World Champion Rush defends against Survival of the Fittest winner
ROH Television Champion Tony Deppen defends against Dragon Lee
Brody King vs. Jay Lethal
EC3 vs. Flip Gordon
Last Man Standing match: Josh Woods vs. Silas Young
