Tyson Kidd Didn't Think He'd Be A Good Producer, Thought He'd Be An Assistant Coach At NXT

Tyson Kidd has become the top producer in WWE for the women's division, earning plenty of praise from many in the division.

Kidd helped put together every women's match at WrestleMania 37 and the women up and down the roster have applauded Kidd for his help in improving their in-ring work and putting together matches.

Speaking on the Two Man Power Trip, Kidd revealed that he wasn't sure he was going to make a good producer when he first signed on for the job.

"Where I believed in myself is that I did train people before, but I was physically able to show and demonstrate things. [Producing] is not that. I didn't think I was going to be very good at this. At best, I might be alright, get the hang of it, and be okay. I had everyone help me. Johnny [Ace], Jamie Noble, Dean [Malenko], Arn [Anderson], really went out of their way to show me everything. It put a lot of things in perspective for me. Off the bat, I thought I was going to be awful. I clearly remember my first day at Staples Center, I'm not assigned a match. I'm in a production meeting and seeing people, some I haven't seen in two years or met before, and having different conversations. I clearly remember, it's a women's gauntlet match and Sasha and Nia are the last two. Sasha asks me something, runs an idea by me to see if it makes sense. The truth is, I had been away from wrestling for two years so it sounded like someone was speaking alien to me, I almost didn't know what the hell she was saying. I was just like, 'Yeah, sounds good.' I didn't even know what I was co-signing. I really thought I was going to be really bad. I thought I would be an assistant coach at NXT or at the PC. I didn't think [producing] was going to go well," he said.

Kidd has more than settled into his role as producer and helping out in other areas backstage, including creative pitches.

Natalya and Tamia recently revealed Kidd suggested they team together earlier this year. You can find their full comments by clicking here.
