Tyson Kidd suffered a career-ending neck injury after he took a botched muscle buster from Samoa Joe during a live event. He was forced to retire from in-ring competition and he almost died from the injury. Samoa Joe also stopped using the muscle buster after the injury.
Tyson Kidd has been training again as of late, where he was also seen teaching Brodie Lee Jr. However, Kidd is not taking bumps.
Tyson Kidd’s wife Natalya recently spoke to Riju Dasgupta, where she was asked about her husband’s condition and whether he can return to the squared circle. Here is what she said:
“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.”
