Oh boy, anytime athletes start saying crazy things like this you know they are helping push a product. Water under no circumstances will save you from a concussion but Russell Wilson wants us to believe that’s what happened to him.


Clay Matthews hit Wilson with a punishing blow during the NFC Championship game last year. Matthews was later fined $22K for the hit but the game was clouded with controversy due to the fact Wilson likely suffered a concussion but never underwent testing as the league mandates.

In a piece for Rolling Stone, Wilson has the nerve to say he didn’t need to worry about a concussion because of miracle water, aka Reliant Recovery Water, a brand he happens to be an investor with.

“I banged my head during the Packers game in the playoffs, and the next day I was fine,” says Wilson. “It was the water.”

Rodgers offers a hasty interjection. “Well, we’re not saying we have real medical proof.”

But Wilson shakes his head, energized by the subject. He speaks with an evangelist’s zeal.

“I know it works.” His eyes brighten. “Soon you’re going to be able to order it straight from Amazon.”

He also claimed it helped a teammates knee miraculously heal, although never saying who or what. He then followed it up on twitter, confirming his beliefs the water saved him from getting a concussion.

According to the Recovery Water website, the product will “help reduce pain and inflammation from your active lifestyle; accelerate recovery from injury and muscle related stress; decrease fatigue for higher energy during activity; speed muscle recovery after activity; and deliver better hydration.
