Fans were shocked when ACH decided to test his skill against his tag team partner, Matt Sydal. ACH has been looking for a chance to prove to not only himself, but to the rest of the world, that he is ready for the next level in Ring of Honor. Sydal, never one to shy away from a challenge, especially one as unique as this, accepted immediately.
ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness signed not just a singles match, but decided a true test would come in the form of a Best of 5 series.
Sydal stormed out to a 1-0 lead in the series in Dearborn, Michigan. ACH responded with a win the following night in Chicago Ridge, IL, evening the series at 1-1. ACH won live on Pay-Per-View at All Star Extravaganza and Sydal rebounded with a victory the next night in San Antonio.
This series has come down to a 5th and deciding match, but there is a catch: the winner will not only be able to say they were the best between the two, they will also qualify as the first entrant into Survival of The Fittest ’15.
Both men have given their all and both are hungry to be the ultimate victor. Sydal is a veteran who has accomplished so much in Ring of Honor, yet he strives for even more. ACH has set short-term and long-term goals and his short-term goal is right in front of him. He needs the win the Best of 5 series to show his value.
Survival of The Fittest is the most historic tournament in Ring of Honor. It has been won by legendary athletes such as Bryan Danielson, Delirious, Tyler Black, and Jay Lethal. It’s long been regarded as a critical step toward greatness in ROH and a huge accomplishment for whomever wins it.
SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST begins with a round of qualifying matches. In the past, there’s been everything from singles competition to tag matches to Four Corner Survival qualifiers, but whatever hand an ROH athlete is dealt in the qualifier, if they can pull out a victory, it’s only the beginning.
The final of SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST is an absolutely grueling Six Way Elimination match to determine most dominant athlete of the entire tournament!
Sydal and ACH have taken to the sky and delivered on fans’ expectations. It has come down to one more battle with a huge opportunity awaiting the winner. They will not disappoint! The two athletes will prove why Ring of Honor delivers the best wrestling on the planet; you will not want to miss your chance to see these two do battle among the stars!
