WWE: Tyson Kidd will miss 14 months after Steve Austin style surgery

Published 23 Comments

Earlier today, we wrote about Tyson Kidd who is going under the knife after breaking his neck in a match against Samoa Joe.

Well, the news of how long the former WWE Tag Team Champion will be out has been revealed, and it does not make for good reading.

According to a report from Wrestling Inc, the operation that Kidd underwent is incredibly similar to the one that both Stone Cold Steve Austin and Edge had after their respective neck injuries, with a 14-month rehab ahead of him before he can even think of a return to the ring.

Heart Break

That means Kidd could potentially go the same way as those that came before him, which would be such a sad way to go, being forced to leave the squared circle before his time.

Cesaro and Kidd were on top of the tag team world, challenging the New Day for the titles as the number one face team on the entire WWE roster. Hopefully, Cesaro and Natalya get good runs as singles and good reactions from crowds at upcoming events.

Missed Muscle Buster

The injury occurred while Kidd was wrestling a match against the then debuting Samoa Joe on a taping for “Superstars.” Kidd reportedly took a bad bump during the match that caused the officials to put up the dreaded 'X'.

Kidd reportedly took a botched Muscle Buster from Joe. He apparently landed on the base of his neck, instantly putting pressure on the area.

Everybody here at GiveMeSport hopes to see positive post-surgery news and Tyson Kidd back in a WWE ring before too long. All the best TJ.
