WWE star Tyson Kidd could be announcing his retirement soon

Published 19 Comments

It has been over a year now since Tyson Kidd suffered his severe neck injury during a match.

Facing Samoa Joe inside the squared circle on June 1st, 2015 in that dark match ahead of Monday Night Raw, Kidd took a botched Musclebuster from the experienced veteran Joe that left him badly hurt. 

Kidd suffered something close to a broken neck and had to have spinal fusion surgery to correct his problems, with his WWE future being in doubt ever since. Well, now we may have an update, and it isn't good.

According to a report from Eric Arrington of Daily Wrestling News, Kidd's contract with the WWE ends soon and it could force him into making a public retirement from wrestling. 

"In an update, Kidd’s WWE talent contract expires soon, if it hasn’t already, and the company has indicated that their doctors may never medically clear Kidd to return to a WWE ring," Arrington wrote in the update on Kidd's status.

"Some close to Kidd believe that he will be speaking out about his situation as soon as he’s able to."

The injury Kidd survived is similar to the one that left former Superman actor Christopher Reeve in a wheelchair for the rest of his life

Not only did Kidd miraculously survive, but he’s been able to walk, talk and move around despite a procedure that required 16 staples, four screws, and a rod inserted in his neck.

So, is Tyson Kidd going to announce his retirement from wrestling? It's not known yet, but it seems to be likely.
