There has been an update on the in-ring status of a current WWE producer.
Tyson Kidd had a very unceremonious end to his wrestling career. The former Tag Team Champion hasn’t wrestled since suffering a broken neck in a 2015 dark match against Samoa Joe.
It has been reported that Kidd is training again, however the WWE producer is no longer taking bumps. In an interview with SK Wrestling, Natalya noted that her husband’s freak injury was very different from the injuries that Edge and Daniel Bryan have recovered from.
Stating that Kidd is satisfied with his current position in WWE, Natalya reminded us that anything can happen in WWE, and to “never say never”.
Here is the full quote, courtesy of Ringside News:
“TJ Was so loved and so respected by people backstage and in front of the camera, but I think, you know, I’m one of those people where I say ‘Never Say Never’. But I feel like TJ is at a point in his life, especially with his health where he is really content with where he’s at as far as not returning to the ring.
Again, I still say ‘Never Say Never’, anything in WWE can happen. That’s the fun part of WWE, you can always expect the unexpected. But it’s hard to say. I think TJ’s injury was so different than Edge and it was so different than Daniel Bryan.
His injury was, you know, his neck was broken at the base of his brain. So it’s a much different injury and it’s much more risky for him to return. So, he’s just very lucky that he is alive and he is well.”
As mentioned by Natalya, Kidd’s injury being so close to his brain would make an in-ring return very risky. It seems like Kidd is thriving in his new role, putting together matches from backstage.
Tyson Kidd has been involved in producing classic matches, including Sasha Banks and Bayley’s Hell In A Cell 2020 encounter.
