AEW Injuries List

Currently, there is no wrestler which an injury or any kind of medical issue.

WWE ImPACT Test for Concussion Cases

WWE uses an ImPACT test for the Concussion cases. ImPACT results are evaluated by Dr. Mark Lovell who is a neuropsychologist and director of the Concussion Program at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center & Sports Medicine.

All WWE Talent have been given a baseline ImPACT test score annually which is mandatory for all prospective talent during pre-contract screening. If a WWE wrestler or referee shows symptoms of a concussion or has suffered a concussion, then he/she will not be cleared for a return to wrestling until he/she passes an ImPACT test and is medically cleared by a certified physician.

ImPACT tests are typically taken by WWE Talent within 24-72 hours post-injury and WWE star will not be cleared until he/she retakes the ImPACT test, passes the ImPACT test and is subsequently cleared clinically by a certified physician.

If symptoms dictate and/or ImPACT scores warrant, WWE will send WWE Talent for direct consultation with Dr. Lovell. Also, if any talent suffers a second concussion within an annual year, that talent will not return to in-ring work until after a one on one evaluation by Dr. Mark Lovell

Prevention Programs and Initiatives For Concussion Prevention

The WWE conducts a yearly educational seminar for all talent, referees, producers & medical personnel that addresses the topic of concussions. The seminar, conducted by Dr. Joseph Maroon, MD, covers topics like:

  • concussion awareness
  • WWE’s protocols for treatment
  • Latest medical information regarding concussion

In addition to education, the WWE has also modified its training program to emphasize techniques and timing of maneuvers to prevent unnecessary shots/strikes to the head. WWE has also eliminated using the folded metal chairs to hit strike an opponent on the head. WWE also penalizes through the wrestlers with fine and/or suspension for the following:

  1. The intentional use of a folding metal chair to hit an opponent in the head.
  2. Any other strike to the head that is deemed an Intentional act.
