Esfinge and Rey Cometa face off with The Dawgs at Survival of the Fittest San Antonio

The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to the Alamo City on Friday, November 17 for Night One of Survival of the Fittest! Your favorite ROH stars will compete in a three-night tournament to determine the 2017 Survival of the Fittest winner. The winner of this year’s tournament will get the customary ROH World Title shot at a later date and etch their name in the history books! Seven out of ten men that have won have gone on to either win the championship with their title shot or do so at a later date – winning ROH’s preeminent tournament has proved it can launch careers!
 
Two CMLL stars make their ROH debuts in San Antonio and they will find out if the Dawgs bark is louder than their bite!
 
TEAM CMLL (ESFINGE & REY COMETA) vs. THE DAWGS (RHETT TITUS & WILL FERRARA)
 
Esfinge and Rey Cometa make their ROH debuts in San Antonio at Night 1 of Survival of the Fittest but they will not be met by a welcoming committee. No, they will be met by a pair looking to continue their winning streak against two of the best in the world!
 
The Dawgs defeated the team now known as IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Champions Roppongi 3k, then known as the Tempura Boyz, and believe they are the true number one contenders for those championships. But at Wrestle Kingdom 12, it will be the Young Bucks facing the new champions with the Dawgs left in the cold.
 
One way to earn a shot at those tag team titles? Defeat two bonafide CMLL stars in their first match in ROH! Rey Cometa is a former CMLL Mexican National Welterweight Champion brings his arsenal of signature planchas to the US for the first time including his amazing Cometa Especial while Esfinge is also making his US debut. Esfinge is a third-generation star and has been a tag team star, winning tag team tournaments like the 2016 La Copa Junior with his father Magnum while winning the 2016 Tomeo Gran Alternativa with Volador Jr.! 
 
It will be a test for the Dawgs and no walk in the park for the team of CMLL stars! Who will win this bout? Join us in San Antonio to find out!
