You may have noticed there have been a whole lot of injuries plaguing WWE talent lately. Well, on a recent episode of Jim Ross' podcast, Ross Report, WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin had these thoughts on the matter:
"Man, I think there’s a direct correlation with how the talent works in the ring today. The WWE guys, they’re doing more high risk stuff, they’re working at a faster pace, and it just lends itself to injury. And that’s not me saying, ‘hey, you’re working wrong’. I’m just saying I believe the product is sped up so much that the guys and gals are just working at a very frenetic pace and without any offseason, it takes a toll on the body."
