Flip Gordon and TK O'Ryan Clash in the First Round of the Survival of the Fittest Tournament

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 fifth 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 fifth match signed for this year’s Survival of the Fittest Tournament is a first-time match between two men who cut their teeth in the New England independent scene who have become blue-chip prospects in ROH!
 
SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST ROUND 1
TK O’RYAN vs. FLIP GORDON
 
TK O’Ryan recovered ahead of schedule following two fractures in his leg to compete in Ring of Honor. His resilience speaks for itself as does the athleticism of the former College of the Holy Cross catcher who made his debut by defeating Bullet Club in six man tag team action nearly one year ago. But those accomplishments for O’Ryan, who has anointed himself The Best Around and the Sassy Wild Horse, aren’t celebrated as fans because, quite frankly, the man is consumed by conspiracy and hasn’t endeared himself to a large segment of the ROH fanbase.
 
The complete opposite is true of the Kalispell, MT native Flip Gordon! Gordon, who is a C4 explosives expert serving our country, has electrified ROH crowds since day one, and has seen an equally fast ascent toward the top of Ring of Honor. Gordon has all the tools and has begun to pick up victories in singles competition. A victory over O’Ryan would not only put him into the finals of Survival of the Fittest in Oklahoma City but also endear himself to the fans that much more by eliminating O’Ryan!
 
Two of ROH’s brightest young stars clash in Dallas with a golden opportunity to go the finals of Survival of the Fittest! Who will pick up the victory and advance to the finals in Oklahoma City? Join us to find out!
