Claudio Castagnoli: People Never Saw Tyson Kidd's Full Potential, I'm Happy He's Helping Others

Claudio Castagnoli had a blast with TJ Wilson. FACT.

In 2015, Cesaro and Tyson Kidd were paired together and became WWE Tag Team Champions. Unfortunately, in the middle of their run, Kidd suffered a career-ending injury. Now, he works as a producer for WWE, helping others put together their matches. Specifically, Tyson is a huge part of the women's division.

Speaking on Kurt Angle's podcast, the former Cesaro said that he is sad the world never got to see Tyson Kidd’s full potential but he's very glad to see TJ Wilson find another outlet for his passion.

“Oh, man, he's amazing. He is so good. Unfortunately, people probably never saw his full potential. But I'm very happy that he's using his genius now to help other people, and help make wrestling a better place for everybody,” said Claudio. “It was so fun teaming with him because it was one of those that we were on the same page from the second we stepped out of the curtain, even though we barely talked beforehand, and then we traveled together. We worked out together. We shared hotel rooms and locker rooms and everything. It just clicked and we are still really good friends. He is just such a student of the game. Yeah, he watches everything and he has a memory like nobody else he remembers stats, he remembers matches, moves, sequences, everything. It's an absolute blast. It was an absolute blast being in the ring with him because it just clicked, we had to talk very little. If there was a thing that we were, we were always on the same page.”

In the past, many have praised the ability of TJ Wilson as a producer, including Liv Morgan, who trains with Tyson and Natalya at the Dungeon 2.0. Learn more about that at this link.
