Tyson Kidd Injury Worse Than Reported

(Big E & Kofi Kingston celebrate victory over Tyson Kidd)

Tyson Kidd posted on social media this week that he’s still not able to really feel or move his head like he used to be able to, but says he is still focused on his recovery. Kidd got injured during a dark match with Samoa Joe on 6/1/15 and has not wrestled since then. Kidd ended up getting C1-C2 spinal fusion surgery to help.

The injury, however, is worse than the public even knew, and doctors have told him that he could have been killed and there was a 95 percent chance of death. It has also been explained that if he did live through this, he should have been paralyzed much like what had happened to Christopher Reeves.

There is no details on exactly what went wrong, but all Joe did was use the muscle buster like he’s done a lot over the years, and it’s not hurt anybody until now. Bret Hart has stated in interviews that Tyson Kidd and Samoa Joe were supposedly rushed out to just do a quick match without warming up first.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
