The WWE Responds To Chris Nowinski's Claims!

Matthew HesterSenior Writer IAugust 21, 2010

A couple of days ago, Christopher Nowinski went on TV and publicly bashed the WWE. He said that the WWE rewards that use steroids and many other allegations. Well, the WWE didn't take his words so kindly. They would go onto to rebut just about everything he said.

I am glad that the WWE has the gumption to call out Nowinksi. I'm not saying that Nowinski is wrong in his statements. In fact, I'm sure much of what he said me be correct when he was there. Still, I cant help but think that Chris is still bitter at the WWE.

He bashes them at just about every chance he gets. I think the WWE has improved the working conditions for wrestler a great deal. Is it perfect? Of course it isn't. There will always be issues wrestlers will have to deal with. That doesn't mean that they haven't made things better though.


The WWE on Chris Nowinski's statements

• Chris Nowinski did not reveal, as required, that he suffered previous concussions before signing his contract with WWE.

• He states WWE suggested that its performers take steroids. However, at no time does he ever state that it was suggested that he do so.

• His comments that WWE talent perform in matches 200 days a year is not factual. In 2009, the average active roster talent performed 135 days.

• A sheer fabrication ... that he went through tables four days a week.

• Mr. Nowinski states, "They have an environment where it's absolutely unsafe to work in that ring." "They have no oversight into what actually happens in the ring." If so, then why would Mr. Nowinski have ever wanted to be a part of such an environment?

• It is very dubious that he ever had a conversation with Lance Cade, much less Lance Cade confiding to a total stranger that he used pain killers and steroids.

• Although renowned in the field of CTE, we are unaware of any specific qualifications or medical degrees that he possesses which would qualify him as an expert on steroids and pain killers.
