Tyson Kidd’s in-ring career unfortunately came to an end after he injured his neck during a dark match with Samoa Joe in 2015, but he has since gone on to work as a producer in WWE.
Kidd opened up about his role during an interview with The Kingston Whig Standard, and he noted that it was Vince McMahon’s idea to have him work backstage.
“That was his idea,” Wilson said. “He thought I’d be good at it or I could get good at it. (McMahon) said to me, ‘You’ll be like me.'”
Tyson Kidd went on to say that he wasn’t sure if he would be good at it, but now he loves his job.
“I didn’t know if I’d be good at it and I didn’t know what all it entailed. I didn’t know if I would get any real fulfillment out of it. But right off the bat, maybe two weeks in, I was a part of a battle royal and I had an idea that Tye Dillinger would be one of the last three guys. I thought his ’10’ stuff was getting over and I thought it would be good and he could have a good showing. I’ve been given those same things where maybe you’re not being super featured but they throw you a little something and then see what happens out of it. The audience was completely with (Dillinger). When he came back, he was happy and I felt that fulfilment (McMahon referred to), which now I’ve felt a million times over. I love my job. I’ve been doing this now almost a year and a half and I haven’t taken a week off yet.”
Even though Tyson Kidd’s career was cut short, it’s nice to know that he’s found happiness with his new role in WWE>
