Fandango Says Chris Nowinski's Concussion Research Is Beneficial
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.10.2014



In an interview with the BBC, Fandango said that Chris Nowinski's concussion research will be beneficial to wrestlers. He suffered a concussion himself in June and was kept out of his PPV match "in the interests of safety". Here are highlights:

On concussion research: "A lot more research is going into them [concussions] now, where they're impact testing. Ten years ago people didn't know a lot about concussions. Chris [Nowinski]'s organization is really diving in to that and really figuring out the impacts of these concussions and what they're doing to these athletes and performers."

On his own concussion: "Doctors ran me through a lot of tests. They're putting a lot more effort into figuring out not only concussions, but other injuries like that."

On the importance of explaining the risk of head injuries: "Knowledge is power and the more power you have, you're going to live a better life. With Chris spearheading a big campaign into research on concussions, it's really beneficial, not only to professional wrestlers but hockey players, NFL, rugby [and] football. The more we know about concussion and the more we can do to prevent coming back too early from a concussion, it's vital for the future of our performers and athletes."
