Colt Cabana, coming off his huge victory last Saturday, will challenge ROH World Champion Bryan Danielson for the World Title on April 22nd in Philadelphia. We will look at the end of the Cabana and Homicide feud tomorrow including why there was a handshake and hug between Cabana and Homicide to end the intense blood feud.

The ROH wrestlers deserve all the credit in the world for delivering three show of the year quality events over the weekend. The ROH athletes put it all on the line each night and as a result the ROH locker room was looking like a warzone. The list of injuries from the weekend is extensive with BJ Whitmer suffering the worst injury with a severe ankle injury. We will know more about Whitmer’s injury on Friday after he sees a specialist. Whitmer suffered the injury on Thursday night when he fell to the floor from the top rope and was in a cast and on crutches the rest of the weekend. To show you the sacrifice the ROH wrestlers make and how hard they work here is a list, in no particular order, of last weekend’s injuries:

-BJ Whitmer has either a broken ankle or very severe sprain. It is not determined yet how much time he will be out.
-Colt Cabana suffered a broken nose and deep bruise on his cheek after a DDT on a ladder on Thursday.
-Homicide went to the hospital and needed stitches after Saturday’s match.
