Tyson Kidd spoke about his work as a producer in WWE during an interview with The Bump (via Wrestling Inc).
Kidd’s in-ring career was cut short due to a severe neck injury that nearly paralysed him.
“I’ve taught people before, but I was younger, and I was able to get in there physically and teach them what I was trying to explain. I didn’t know in this role if I was going to be able to do that same thing. I didn’t know if I could communicate verbally the message I’m trying to get across. It was a learning process for me to figure out how to balance that. Then, I shadowed so many great people. You had Kayla [Braxton] interviewing Michael Hayes earlier; Michael has taught me so much. Bret and Jamie Noble, all these guys I shadowed. And then, somehow, someway, I fell into and started producing more and more women’s matches until it became exclusive now. But I love it. It’s so much more than my own career. It’s more sentimental. Not to take away from my own career, but what I’m doing now is not even close. The comparison is not even close.”
