CORBIN SPEAKS UP
Posted:111717

Not A Big Fan of the WWE Medical Staff

Baron Corbin isnít a fan of WWE doctor Joseph Maroon. Maroon had been brought in to talk with the roster about the importance of concussion-related injuries and why injuries should be reported immediately. During the meeting, Maroon brought up a recent study on deceased NFL players who had been diagnosed with CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) and downplayed it as being proof that anyone who played football would then develop CTE. Since Corbin played college football and had a short NFL career he cut Maroon off and questioned what everyone was being told. Corbin argued that there would always be some form of head trauma since football helmets are constantly connecting during every play. He also revealed he is part of a concussion-related lawsuit against the NFL and questioned Maroonís beliefs against CTE. The portrayal of Maroon in the 2015ís Concussion movie with Will Smith suggested so but Maroon told the talent that his depiction in that movie was incorrect. He did agree with Corbin that CTE was a problem but he was trying to make the point that the study did not mean 99% of NFL players had CTE. The two went back and forth then ended. Some at the meeting have described it as awkward since it made the meeting so longer than it had to and thought that Corbin could have expressed his beliefs with Maroon after the meeting. The fact that he did speak out did impress some talent in the meeting.
