WWE Doctor’s Controversial Concussion Statement

WWE Medical Director Dr. Joseph Maroon, who is also a NFL medical consultant and neurosurgeon for the Pittsburgh Steelers, appeared on the NFL Network this week to discuss concussions after the retirement of San Francisco 49ers linebacker Chris Borland, who is just 24 and is retiring out of concern for his longterm health.

Maroon, who has operated on several WWE talents and says the NFL has never been safer, is receiving heat in the media for some of his comments. Maroon said his message to parents that are concerned about their youth football players would be that he believes "the problem of CTE, although real, is it's being overexaggerated and being extrapolated to youth football and to high school football" and that "it's much more dangerous riding a bike or a skateboard than playing youth football."
