Tyson Kidd’s career ended at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas, in a match against Samoa Joe in 2015. Samoa Joe’s finishing maneuver, the “Muscle Buster,” damaged Kidd’s spinal cord, resulting in him requiring 16 staples, four screws, and a rod inserted in his neck. Only 5% of people who suffer this injury recover, and the majority of those end up with paraplegia or quadriplegia.
However, a recent video showing Kidd running the ropes, wrestling his wife Natalya, and doing a headstand on a turnbuckle has resulted in speculation he could be looking to make a comeback. You can watch the video for yourself below, showing Kidd in fantastic shape.
Given the extent of his injury, it seems unlikely a return would be possible, but given Daniel Bryan and Edge managed to make miraculous returns to the ring in recent years, perhaps it could also happen for Kidd.
