Dr. Joseph Maroon: "They came to me and said look, 'We are interested in doing everything we can to protect our talent. It's the lifeblood of our industry. We want to do the very best that we can and the best medicine that we can to protect them.'"
Stephanie McMahon: "We do cardiovascular screening. We do ImPACT testing. We do blood work. There is a drug-testing component. It's really with the idea of having our athletes and our superstars have the best health possible."
