BJ Whitmer Injury Update

We have an injury update on B.J. Whitmer and it's not a good one. While Whitmer has a bruised C-3 and C-4 vertebrae which isn't considered serious, he's also suffering from spinal stenosis.

Whitmer is going for a second opinion but is already preparing for his post-wrestling career and has plans to go back to school and get a nursing degree. The following is from Whitmer's Twitter account:

  • Cody

    Isn’t that what edge had?

    • Dave Barton

      Spinal stenosis, yes. Its a narrowing of the spinal canal, which can choke the spinal cord & limit the body’s ability to effectively send signals from the brain to virtually any part of the body. Its not something to be taken lightly.

      • Robert Olley

        Hoping he takes edges example and retires bjs a good talent but risking literally your motor skills for the fans is just too much

  • Dave Capano

    If this is truly the end of BJ’s career, i just want to say thanks for the years of great matches and the memories. Good luck and stay strong BJ
