Natalya gives Tyson Kidd his flowers for the work that he does with WWE's women's division.
Unfortunately, Tyson Kidd’s wrestling career came to an abrupt halt following an injury that forced him to retire.
In the time since then, Tyson Kidd has become a producer and has specifically worked with WWE's women's division for some of its most recent major bouts, including the main event at WrestleMania 37 between Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks.
On Instagram, Natalya, Tyson Kidd's wife, praised him for finding his niche following the end of his dream career.
I don’t want to put @tjwilson711 on the spot— i just want to thank him for the most incredible work he did this weekend with every single women’s match at WrestleMania 37. Over 25 hours of practice (on top of many hours in our ring), I’m really so proud of the dedication that TJ has to helping others.
When TJ had to retire in 2015, it was challenging for him to picture his life outside of competing in the ring. For many athletes, we dedicate so much of our life to perfecting our craft, it often becomes our identity. It’s so inspiring to see how TJ is able to impact wrestling now more than ever before through his 25 years in the industry. He’s making the biggest impact of his career right now in the way he’s elevating others. The greatest thing we can do is give back! Those who do that— they are CHAMPIONS in every sense of the word.
Thanks for everything, @tjwilson711. Here’s to many more magical WrestleMania moments to come.
Kidd and Natalya entered WWE together alongside Davey Boy Smith Jr. Recently, Davey Boy was featured at the WWE Hall of Fame accepting the induction for his late father, The British Bulldog. He has also recently spoken about a potential return to WWE. Learn more about that at this link.
