• Tyson Kidd On If He Has Heat With Samoa Joe After Joe Ended His Career
During a recent interview with The Winston Whig-Standard, former WWE wrestler & current WWE producer Tyson Kidd was asked if he has heat with Samoa Joe after he took a MuscleBuster from Joe and suffered a career-ending injury.
Below is what Kidd said:
“There’s an unwritten protocol when you hurt somebody. And when I say you hurt somebody, obviously it’s not on purpose, but it still happens. I know I’ve rocked guys before where I checked on them after to make sure everything’s cool.
Joe did come to the hospital that night.
We spoke that night. We would text throughout the time I was hurt, but I only saw him face to face when I got hurt and when I did see him that night, things were still up in the air with the severity of my injury. He was definitely remorseful and I think we all are when we hurt somebody and when somebody gets hurt under our watch.
Stuff happens. We perform at such a high level so many days a week that things are going to happen. We just have to do the best we can to take care of each other and to let a person know that we’re there for them when they do get hurt.
My first day back as a producer after two years, once I was out of meetings, he was the first guy who I Terminator-style sought out and found. And we had a very good talk and we’re friends. We get along great.”
