WWE Fandango: Concussion campaign really beneficial

10 March 2014 Last updated at 06:15 GMT

WWE star Fandango says more is now being done to help understand the effects of concussion on athletes.

The wrestler suffered a serious concussion himself last year and says WWE organisers "took great care" of him afterwards.

Last week Chris Nowinski, a former WWE performer and American footballer, said young people in the UK aren't taught enough about head injuries.

He had to retire after being diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome and has released a film highlighting the dangers.

Fandango, whose real name is Curtis Hussey, thinks Nowinski's campaign is "really beneficial" and may prevent people from coming back to sports to soon after a head injury.

He was speaking to Newsbeat reporter Amelia Butterly.
