Quote Thank You BJ Whitmer

After a long and punishing stay, BJ Whitmer has decided to walk away from Ring Of Honor. ROH and Whitmer have now officially parted ways. Everyone in ROH wants to thank BJ for his immense contributions to the company.

Whitmer, a leader in the locker room, set an example in and out of the ring. He had the most service time on the ROH roster after making his debut on the very first show of 2003. Spanky had feverishly recommended Whitmer to ROH officials throughout 2002. Whitmer finally received his opportunity at "Revenge On The Prophecy" on January 11th, 2003 as part of the first ever Four Corner Survival vs. Paul London, Homicide and Colt Cabana. Whitmer impressed in this bout, which put the Four Corner Survival on the map to become a signature ROH match. Whitmer never looked back.

He did it all in his ROH career. You want a title belts? Whitmer is a four time ROH Tag Team Champion with Dan Maff and Jimmy Jacobs as partners. You want great feuds? No ROH fan will ever forget his battles against CZW and Jimmy Jacobs. You want matches that did big business? Look at his "Steel Cage Showdown" vs. Jimmy Jacobs or No Rope Barbed Wire Match vs. The Necro Butcher. How about great matches? Well, just look at his battles against Homicide at "Main Event Spectacles" or Samoa Joe at "Hell Freezes Over" to name a few.

It is no coincidence that ROH officials chose BJ Whitmer to open up ROH's first ever pay-per-view "Respect Is Earned." Whitmer's consistency and seniority earned him that once-in-a-lifetime spot. BJ Whitmer had some frustrations during the past year. When his own Hangmen Three group turned on him to join Sweet & Sour Inc., Whitmer had taken one beating too many. It was time for him to walk away.

We wish BJ the best in his future endeavors. He was a credit to the locker room, a performer who gave his all to the fans and is a quality person. Thank you, BJ Whitmer.

Why would Whitmer leave? He had been there for ages and seemed one of the people mostly associated with the company. He could have something else planned within wrestling. It just seems strange that after being with them through tougher times, he leaves now they are on PPV and getting bigger than ever, through choice. Another reason could be that he wasn't happy with the direction he was going in. It's not like he's going to have got a title run anytime soon (no offence to him).
