Dr. Chris Amann Talks About Leaving His Practice For A Job With WWE & Kofi Injuring Opponents
The April 2013 issue of WWE Magazine features an interview with WWE’s Dr. Chris Amann, who spoke about leaving his practice in 2008 to work for WWE.
“Quite honestly, I wasn’t looking to leave the medical practice I’d built up pretty strong back in Chicago. But I had the opportunity to send WWE my résumé, and I did. A couple of weeks later, I went out for an interview at a TV taping in Albany. I got a chance to see what went on behind the scenes and speak with the staff, learn the requirements. I was intrigued about having the chance to develop their sports-medicine program not to mention the job sounded like a bunch of fun. So I left my practice to join up with WWE.”
Amann also spoke about Kofi Kingston injuring a lot of his opponents and whether John Cena is injury prone:
“I can’t single out one Superstar. But, and this is sort of funny, there was a period of time when the joke backstage was, ‘If you’re having a match with Kofi, you were going to end up with me.’ So I was seeing his opponents one after the other at one point! Then there are Superstars such as John Cena, who barely frequent the training room. But when a medical issue does come up, he’s good about letting us know.”
