Update: Good News from BJ Whitmer; Feeling & Movement Returns to Injured Areas, Out of Bed & More

Mike Killam

B.J. Whitmer talked with PWInsider this morning, updating them on the status and severity of his injures suffered at this weekend's Ring of Honor live event in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. 

According to their most recent report, Whitmer immediately lost feeling in the right side of his body when his head came down on the ring apron, following a piledriver from Michael Bennett. Several trained EMTs, including Davey Richards, came down to check on him, and the match was then called off as a stretcher took him out of the arena. 

B.J. is up and moving out of bed, and has regained full use of the right side of his body, and has movement in his back. While he said he is still feeling the pain, movement is definitely a great sign. He will be undergoing a full range of tests today, but X-Rays have already shown that he does not have any fractures, but has most likely ruptured a disc in his back.
