Even though he's not competing in the ring, Tyson Kidd's impact and influence within the industry is not likely to dwindle anytime soon.
Speaking with the DropKick Podcast, Kidd was asked by a viewer whether or not he sees himself and Natalya opening up a wrestling school in the future. Although the timing for something like that isn't ideal right now, the multi-time WWE Tag Team Champion admits that it is something he would eventually like to do. Here is what he said:
"It's definitely something I've put a lot of thought into, and I continue to put a lot of thought into. Eventually, I would say that my answer would be "yeah." Eventually, I will open up probably a wrestling school. Obviously, the timing is a little weird in terms of... the world is just in a weird spot. We're still in a weird spot. Right now, everybody that comes to the ring, we're all tested all the time, so there's that. I wouldn't want to put anybody in harm's way if somebody's not tested and we're coming and training... But when things get a little more normal it's definitely something... like I said, I've put a lot of thought into it already. My answer, I guess, would be yes, I just don't know exactly when. I'd have to sit down and really break down the curriculum and how I would do it."
Kidd continued on to share stories of his time training at the Hart Dungeon, most notably one of Stu Hart demonstrating how to apply a headlock on Mauro Ranallo. Apparently Mauro, like everyone who had this done to them, suffered the side-effect of severely bloodshot eyes. Learning how to wrestle at the Dungeon was not for the faint of heart, as the gruelling nature was enough to scare multiple students back overseas before they even started their second day.
Kidd's in-ring career ended after suffering a neck injury during a dark match in 2015. He is now working as a producer for WWE.
