(NECN: Jim Braude) - WWE wrestler Lance Cade died this week at the age of 29. The reported cause was heart failure, but the death is raising red flags for experts on sports injuries -- and there could be political consequences.

Republican Linda McMahon, a Senate candidate in Connecticut, says there is no way she should be held accountable.

"Considering this is such a health and wellness issue...she's kicking dirt on the guy's grave," says Nowinski of McMahon, the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment.

Concussion expert and former WWE wrestler Chris Nowinski joins Broadside for a discussion.
