WWE workshop raises awareness about concussions

WWE star Glenn “Kane” Jacobs and senior WWE ringside physician Dr. Chris Amann took part in a workshop in Knoxville on Monday to raise awareness about the dangers of concussions. This is expected to be the first of many workshops WWE plans to hold.

Jacobs: “I don’t think we take them as seriously as we should because we are such a hyper-competitive society, especially when it comes to sports.”

Amann: “Headaches, dizziness, slowness of thought, changes in personality. We need to be very cognizant of identifying these injuries and once they are identified and diagnosed, then making sure an appropriate amount of time is taken for the brain to rest and heal up before returning to sport.”
