Fandango suffers concussion

WWE.COM is reporting that Fandango has suffered a concussion during the
Smackdown tapings this past Tuesday night and was pulled out from all
non-televised events. While Fandango has passed the concussion impact
test, WWE doctors have not cleared him to start wrestling again yet so his
involvement in the triple threat match for the Intercontinental title at
the Payback pay-per-view this Sunday could be effected. If Fandango is
pulled, it would mark the second time in a row that a wrestler was not
medically cleared to wrestle on a pay-per-view due to a concussion. Dolph
Ziggler had to be pulled from the ladder match at Extreme Rules after he
was on the receiving end of a concussion as well. Ziggler has now been
cleared to return.

    What exactly IS a concussion impact test?

    “ImPACT provides computerized neurocognitive assessment tools and services that are used by medical doctors, psychologists, athletic trainers, and other licensed healthcare professionals to assist them in determining an athlete’s ability to return to play after suffering a concussion.”

    @Kerry: You watch an episode of TNA and see if you lose consciousness. If you do, you’re healthy.

    LOL @ “What?”

    Basically you take a bunch of memory questions and things like that when you first start. If you get a concussion then you take it afterwards and once your results are similar to the first then you are cleared to return.
