Chris Nowinski fighting the good cause
Chris Nowinski discussed the head trauma with the Philadelphia Inquirer. He also recently talked with Vince McMahon, let's hope they have made peace and work together in helping the issue at hand. Here are some of the comments Nowinski made with the Inquirer.
"The WWE interestingly had a more advanced program more quickly [than the NFL] six months after the Chris Benoît tragedy," Nowinski said.
"They instituted neuropsychological testing. They've had it over a year now. They have pre-talks with new hires on concussions and CTE. They limit bumps in their wrestling school, repetitive falls on your back." Nowinski noted that WWE does not advertise their head trauma policies and said it's likely due to liability reasons.
Christian on the shelf
WWE star Christian recently underwent surgery for a torn pectoral muscle. He got injured at a very unfortunate time. It seemed he was just starting to get hot with a feud with Albert Del Rio, and now this will set things back until he gets better. Christian commented on the issue on WWE.com.
"I've never had surgery before, so I've never been put under anesthesia," Christian told the WWE website. "They told me that they were about to put the anesthesia in my IV. I expected to go under gradually … and the next thing I remember was opening my eyes and Dr. Andrews telling me that the surgery was finished. It was so weird. It was the craziest thing I've ever experienced." To read more on the story, visit WWE.com.
