Report: Tyson Kidd returning to WWE in non-wrestling capacity

TJ “Tyson Kidd” Wilson is set to return to the wrestling business, but not in an active capacity, according to Pro Wrestling Sheet.

Given the news is fresh, Kidd’s role hasn’t been defined yet, but he is likely to be a producer/agent or used in some sort of on-air role which doesn’t require wrestling.

Tyson Kidd of course suffered a career-ending injury in 2015 during a match with Samoa Joe and was reportedly kept off the last season of Total Divas as WWE feared he would open up about the night he was injured.

The 36-year-old however will appear on the show again next season.

    Realistically speaking, any neck injury is potentially career ending or life ending, and very difficult to be 100% again, as re-injuring yourself could end up being far worse. As hopeful as I am about Tyson’s future, I really don’t know if it’s in the cards for an in-ring return, but you never know. Just managing my own expectations on the matter.

    “was reportedly kept off the last season of Total Divas as WWE feared he would open up about the night he was injured.”
    That makes no sense as the show is edited. If he opened up about it, it would be very simple for WWE to have it cut and never broadcast.

    He was more than likely kept off Total divas because of how badly injured he was, and not being able to actually do anything.

    To my knowledge its never been said that it “is” a career ending injury, just that it “could” be.
    Kidd had always maintained that he was hoping to return.

    Could very well be that he is recovered enough to do other stuff while he continues to recover in hopes of returning to the ring.

    Damn – didn’t realize it was a career-ending injury.
