Ring of Honor passed this along:

The 2010 ROH Holiday Gauntlet

Christmas will come early this year for one Ring of Honor wrestler as, on October 1st, we will be taping the episode of “ROH on HDNet” that will air Christmas week. In celebration of that, we have a special opportunity for just one ROH competitor.

That one lucky Ring of Honor wrestler will get a HUGE Christmas bonus as the winner of the first ever 8-Man “ROH Holiday Gauntlet” will receive a $10,000 prize presented by ROH and HDNet!

Eight men will be selected at random out of a group of the top 16 ROH wrestlers on the roster. These 8 wrestlers will then draw their number of entry at random and 2 men will begin the match. When one man is eliminated, he will be replaced by another until there is only one wrestler standing. That last man will be declared the winner and receive the $10,000 Christmas Bonus!

The 16 names being placed into the drawing are as follows:

– Austin Aries
– Chris Hero
– Christopher Daniels
– Claudio Castagnoli
– Colt Cabana
– Davey Richards
– Eddie Edwards
– El Generico
– Homicide
– Kevin Steen
– Jay Briscoe
– Mark Briscoe
– Necro Butcher
– Rhett Titus
– Roderick Strong
– Steve Corino

Which of these 16 will be selected? And who will walk away with not only the money, but with the accomplishment of being the sole survivor in a field of the top ROH wrestlers? Be there live Friday night to see for yourself. Tickets are on sale now: http://www.rohwrestling.com/store.php?sec=prod&prod=266.
