Ring of Honor debuted at the Mattamy Athletic Centre in Toronto last Saturday night with “All Star Extravaganza V”! Featuring the continuation of the World Title Tournament, the amazing crowd also bore witness to another shake-up in the tag team title scene as well as debuts, returns, and unfortunately, a very scary scene with our own BJ Whitmer.

First Round World Title Tournament Match: Michael Bennett vs. BJ Whitmer ended in a No Contest after BJ suffered a serious injury due to a piledriver on the ring apron; Contrary to Kevin Kelly's statement in the above embedded video, ROH officials have NOT determined how this NC will affect the World Title Tournament and Nigel McGuinness will address that situation shortly.
