– WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash will be donating his brain and spinal card to the CTE Center at Boston University and the Concussion Legacy Foundation after his death. Nash spoke with Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com this week about the decision.
“Chris Nowinski started the program, and I’ve had several concussions throughout my life and had scans done and stuff and knew that somewhere down the line, I’ve already had short-term memory problems,” Nash said. “I decided to go ahead. The only way you can diagnose this is after you’re dead.”
Former WWE Superstar Chris Nowinski said, “It’s so powerful when icons like Kevin Nash are willing to pledge their brain for research and talk about it publicly. Brain donation is really driving our growing knowledge of CTE and the long-term effects of brain trauma. And so I’m hoping that we solve this problem before Kevin’s time comes, but Kevin announcing this means that other families are aware that this research is important and that if they lose somebody, they may think of the concussion legacy foundation.”
