WWE is tightening their association with the concussion education and research non-profit Sports Legacy Institute. SLI announced today that Triple H has been elected to their board of directors. The announcement said that the Game “oversees WWE’s comprehensive Talent Wellness Program and Professional Development for all WWE performers” and made note of his responsibility in overseeing the talent relations and talent development departments, training of WWE Superstars and Divas and management of worldwide recruitment and live global events.
“We are thrilled to welcome Paul Levesque to our Board of Directors,” said co-founder (and WWE alum) Christopher Nowinski. “As an athlete himself, Paul is familiar with the risks associated with concussions. As an executive, Paul has made it a priority to protect WWE’s performers through education and awareness, as well as preventative measures and world class medical care.”
Triple H commented as well, saying, “It is an honor to join the Board of Directors at SLI to support the important work they do in the field of concussion management and prevention. This work benefits athletes of all ages and skill levels, from high school to collegiate to professional sports, as well as many others including members of our military.”
