-BJ said he didn’t like the stigma of saying he “retired,” from wrestling. He knowingly took a break a few years ago and it was meant to be just that, a rest from wrestling.

-BJ said he worked a 9 to 5 job during his “retirement” and found himself very out of shape. Eventually it was now or never in regards to making a return.

-BJ shared his thoughts on Gabe Sapolsky, Citing he lost Gabe’s number but he’d love to work for him again. Great memories from ROH.

-BJ shared his thoughts on CM Punk’s success. He was asked if he ever thought looking at that little kid in shorts in Chicago would make the career he did. Whitmer said he knew Punk was special but thought his look would hold him back. He enjoyed Punk’s infamous “fourth wall” promo and likes the freedom punk is getting.

-BJ talked about his match with Eddie Kingston last month, He loves the chemistry Kingston brings to the table. He also mentioned that it was special of Eddie Kingston to get on the microphone after the match and speak so highly of him.

-BJ talked a bit in depth of his ROH run. His infamous cage match with Jimmy Jacobs. His barbed wire match with Necro Butcher. And his thoughts on why the faction, Hangmen 3, failed.

-Other topics included in the interview are BJ cutting his hair and subsequently bleaching it (and the pain involved), Being called Kennedy, What the future holds for him and much more!
