Dijak has proven himself as a formidable force in the world of pro-wrestling, garnering attention both for his imposing stature and his impressive in-ring abilities. Dijak first burst into the wrestling scene back in 2013 and quickly made a name for himself on the independent circuit and now he has committed his body to a worthy cause.

Dijak has made a significant commitment to furthering research on CTE by pledging to donate his brain to the Concussion Foundation. In a social media post on Thursday, March 28, Dijak revealed that he made this decision nine years ago, aligning himself with the cause alongside other notable athletes who have made similar pledges.

“Agreed. I pledged my brain 9 years ago. Wrestlers click here if interested or hit up @ChrisNowinski1 or @ConcussionLF for more info.”

Dijak made this surprising announcement under a post about Rob Van Dam donating his brain and spine for the same purposes. Dijak joins the ranks of other athletes that have made the pledge like Matt Hasselbeck, Ted Johnson, Warren Sapp, Dale Earnhardt Jr, Michelle Akers, Hayley Wickenheiser, Ben Lovejoy, Eric Winston, and Randy Cross.


With an increasing number of athletes recognizing the potential consequences of repetitive head injuries, initiatives like Dijak’s pledge to donate his brain serve as valuable step forward to ongoing research efforts.
