WWE has not been giving the wrestlers enough time to rest during the match and this has not been good on matters to do with their health. Lack of time to rest meant that one could highly be wrestled upon during the match and might even develop health complication, which is not a good idea. Most of the WWE wrestlers have been reported to die prematurely due to the damages they suffered on their heads during wrestling matches. In most cases the ropes that surround the wrestling field are not that effective and to some extent the wrestlers fall down and get high fractures on their body parts. WWE does a good job to protect the health of the wrestlers by ensuring that the surface that is as well referred to as the wrestling field is made of foam (Neilson 115). This means that WWE protects the health of the wrestlers during the wrestling time by ensuring that the wrestlers don not harm their health even when they fall down at a high speed. This paper seeks to explain how WWE has decided to correct all issues concerning wrestler’s health matters and what best they are doing to protect their health.
It has been proven that the health of the Wrestlers has not protected by WWE as many of them have faced high health problems that led them to stopping their job for a while. Most of the wrestlers faced a lot of health problems and this made the WWE to research on how this problem could be solved. This is the reason as to why they were able to employ the use of different tactics that could help protect the health of the wrestlers. WWE was able to avail many ambulances that could be used to take the wrestlers to health centers in case they needed attention. They provided medicine as well that was in high demand by the wrestlers in their job and in their daily practice to help them keep fit and protect their health in return.
The wrestling field where wrestling takes place is small and surrounded by ropes. WWE came up with the idea of ropes and a ring; since, the idea proved to be useful in protecting the wrestlers while doing their job. Wrestlers use these ropes to protect themselves from falling down and harming their bodies, thus preventing health problems. This strategy helps in protecting the health of the wrestler whereby, the surface that is in other terms referred to as the wrestling field is made of foam as well. This is another way that the WWE uses to protect the health of the wrestlers during the wrestling time by ensuring that the wrestlers don not harm their health even when he falls down on the surface. The surface gives the wrestler an assurance that he is safe on health matters while using the floor in doing his job. WWE provides a working environment to the wrestler that is free from harassment that includes inappropriate physical touching that might interfere with his health.
Many people had claimed of head damage during wrestling and this made WWE to put a measure of helping the wrestlers (Achilles 114). They realized that head blows were not good and could later bring health complications to the wrestler such as Alzheimer’s, ALS, CTE, Parkinson’s, and dementia, which results to severe head damage. WWE sought ways of addressing the problem of giving an opponent many head blows by coming up with good health care strategies, prevention programs and health care measures that could protect the health of their employees. This is the reason as to WWE has currently provided a good working environment that will help protect the health of its wrestlers. WWE used to create an even heightens the violence of its matches with the aim of making more profit and entertaining its fans, but eventually this act was stopped after being proven as one of the ways that used to create health problems to the wrestlers. This was stopped on ground of protecting the health of its wrestlers as most brain trauma cases were reported before the action was stopped.
WWE is now more concerned about prevention of harmful injuries during matches; since, this has been one of the ways that used to cause health problems to its wrestlers. Any wrestler who hit his opponent with a metallic object automatically loses the game to the victim as a sign of warning that whatever he has done is highly prohibited by the WWE management. WWE has created a medical monitoring program that is now working to diagnose possible concussion and how they can be prevented as one of ways that help reduce health complications to the wrestlers. WWE is now on the front line in compensating it’s wrestlers who are diagnosed with long-term chronic injuries. This is the reason as to why it has put stiff measure of preventing any more health complications and problems to its wrestlers.
Due to many cases that have been reported concerning injuries, WWE has decided to be more careful in protecting the health of its wrestlers because; enough had not been done in the recent past (Blake 324). Sometime in the past, the media reported that WWE on fire due to mistreatment of its wrestlers. This contributed in making WWE more careful in dealing with its wrestlers as it faced high charges in the courts of law. Since then, WWE has never mistreated its wrestler again due to the fact that they realized they were not doing what was expected of them in protecting the health of their wrestlers. Muscle Building, Endurance, and Strength has been key side that provides a comprehensive overview to understanding the integrated impact of nutrition on performance to all wrestlers whereby, WWE has been determined in making this happen to prevent damage on their wrestlers bodies (Debasis, Sreejayan & Chandan 410). WWE has now encouraged the stopping of high- flying stunts that were reported to cause health complications in the recent past. On the other side, WWE is currently encouraging its wrestlers not to stay for long in this field for the sake of protecting their health, which is very important.
In conclusion, WWE has not been giving the wrestlers enough time to rest during the match and this was not good on matters to do with their health. Lack of time to rest meant that one could highly be wrestled upon during the match and he might even develop health complication. Most of the WWE wrestlers have been reported to die prematurely due to the damages that they suffered on their brains during wresting and failed to be treated on time. Many people had claimed of head damage during wrestling and this made WWE to put a measure of helping the wrestlers. They realized that head blows were not good and could later bring health complications to the wrestler such as Alzheimer’s, ALS, CTE, Parkinson’s, and dementia proving to be severe illness. WWE sought ways of addressing the problem that resulted from giving an opponent many head blows. WWE come up with good health care strategies, prevention programs and health care measures that could protect the health of their wrestlers.
