WWE Attacks Chris Nowinski’s Credibility Following Shoot

Nick Paglino

We recently reported that former WWE star Chris Nowinski had some harsh things to say about WWE during a recent interview with The Atlantic.

Following the posting of the video interview, WWE sent The Atlantic an email in an attempt to discredit Chris Nowinski’s statements about the company, his tenure there, and Linda McMahon’s comments concerning the recent passing of Lance Cade. The following are the bullet points of WWE’s email:

WWE RAISES CREDIBILITY ISSUES FOR CHRIS NOWINSKI
 
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 painkillers 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.
