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:

Mike Mondo, who had taken time off to allow himself to heal from issues that came from his ankle surgery, will officially return to the ROH roster this Saturday, facing TV champ Matt Taven in a non-title Proving Ground match. He's been working his leg out on the independents, most notably NYWC in Long Island.

Prince Nana will be doing commentary this weekend. There's talk of a big Nana angle.
