WWE Rumours: Update on Tyson Kidd's WWE career
WWE announced on June last year that the former 2 time Tag team Champion Tyson Kidd, suffered a career-threatening neck/spinal injury. A week before the official announcement, Kidd wrestled NXT superstar Samoa Joe in a dark match prior to RAW.
The injury occurred after Joe executed his finisher, Muscle Buster on him.
Tyson confirmed a few weeks later that, it would take him more than a year to recover from the surgery. He also mentioned that, after suffering such neck injury, only 5% people have survived in the past. Kidd had 16 staples, 4 screws and a rod inserted in his neck.
Now, after a year has passed, his physical condition hasn’t improved much. Allwrestlingnews.com reports that there is nothing new about his condition, although he has been recovering at a faster rate than expected.
In the latest mailbag segment of Wrestling Observer Newsletter Radio, a question was raised by a fan, who was curious to know about Tyson’s wrestling career and when he may return to wrestling.
Dave Meltzer answered him, saying "It is unbelievable that Tyson Kidd came through as well as he did”. According to Meltzer, at this stage, it seems Kidd’s physical condition won’t allow him to wrestle, ever again.
