Silas Young and Josh Woods face off in the Survival of the Fittest Tournament!

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!
 
The third 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 third match signed for this year’s Survival of the Fittest Tournament is a first-time match between a man coming off the biggest wins of his career and a man looking to earn the biggest win of his career in San Antonio!
 
SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST ROUND 1
SILAS YOUNG vs. JOSH WOODS
 
Silas Young looked at Jay Lethal as a man who received opportunities in big time matches and in big time roles to promote ROH as one of its top stars. Young said he would prove he was every bit the wrestler Lethal was and more by beating him. And Young did just that, beating him in the main event of a sold-out ROH Unauthorized, beating him in an Edinburgh Street Fight in front of a sold-out crowd in Scotland, and then picking up the biggest win of his career against Lethal in a Last Man Standing Match in front of the world on Pay Per View at Death Before Dishonor!
 
The year has been similarly big for Josh “The Goods” Woods, whose went from top amateur wrestler to 2017 ROH Top Prospect Tournament Winner and ROH World Television Title contender nearly overnight. Woods defeated three fellow prospects to earn his contract before picking up wins over wrestlers like QT Marshall and Shane Taylor. For the four-time All-American and former National Champion Woods, a pro with just under three years’ experience, his stock as a new wrestler has risen in proportion to that of Young.
 
In a first-time match-up, these two will face with high stakes in San Antonio! The winner of this bout moves on to Oklahoma City and is one step closer to earning a ROH World Title shot. Join us in San Antonio to see these stars clash!
