Matt Taven and Cheeseburger go one-on-one for the first time in Dallas

The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to Dallas on Saturday, November 18 for Night Two 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!
 
The fourth match of the 2017 Survival of the Fittest Tournament has been finalized! The first round will be split across Night 1 in San Antonio and Night 2 in Dallas! The competitors who drew Night 1 matches will have a night of rest advantage while competitors who win on Night 2 will have the toughest road ahead to earn the title shot. 
 
The fourth match signed for this year’s Survival of the Fittest Tournament is a first-time match between a man who is certain there is a conspiracy being waged against him and ROH’s most-popular underdog!
 
SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST ROUND 1
MATT TAVEN vs. CHEESEBURGER
 
It is hard to deny the success Matt Taven achieved in Ring of Honor. Whether it was the splash he made by winning the 2013 Top Prospect Tournament and then immediately winning the ROH World Television Title or his ROH and IWGP Tag Team Title wins or resurrecting The Kingdom in his image to lead them to the inaugural ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Titles, Taven has accomplished it all.
 
Well, except for winning the ROH World Championship. And a win over Cheeseburger would get him one step closer.
 
In both men’s Survival of the Fittest debuts, Taven takes on Cheeseburger for the very first time in Dallas! For a man that has drawn comparisons to quarterbacking The Kingdom the way Tom Brady leads the Patriots, it may look like he has a gimme on the schedule. But ‘Burger and his Shotei Palmstrike could turn this into a trap game and make a long flight home to New England for the Bad Boy From Boston!
 
Who will pick up the victory and advance to the finals in Oklahoma City? Join us to find out!
