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.
