ImPACT Concussion Testing

  • All WWE Talent with an active booking contract have been given a baseline ImPACT test.

  • An ImPACT test measures the effects of a concussion through cognitive tests.

  • Baseline ImPACT tests are mandatory for all prospective talent during pre-contract screening.

  • WWE Talent are given repeat baseline ImPACT tests every two years.

  • If a WWE Talent shows symptoms of a concussion, then that WWE Talent will not be cleared for a return to wrestling until he/she completes and passes an ImPACT test as directed by a WWE ringside physician or athletic trainer.

  • ImPACT tests are typically taken by WWE Talent within 24-72 hours post injury.

  • If the post-injury ImPACT results do not indicate a recovery, then that WWE Talent will not be cleared until he/she retakes the ImPACT test and passes the ImPACT test. Repeat ImPACT tests are usually administered 2-3 days after the first post injury ImPACT test.

  • ImPACT results are evaluated by Dr. Mark Lovell, neuropsychologist and director of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Sports Medicine Concussion Program.

  • If symptoms dictate and/or ImPACT scores warrant, WWE will send a WWE Talent for a direct consultation with Dr. Lovell at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
