The final diagnosis on BJ Whitmer was that he suffered a bruised spinal cord, which is pretty serious. He's also been diagnosed with spinal stenosis, which is the condition that ended the career of Adam Copeland. Whitmer will be getting additional medical examinations in the upcoming weeks. There's no set schedule for his return.

Here's the latest Ring of Honor "Honor Roll" leading into Saturday's Manhattan Mayhem V card at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC:
