Tyson Kidd revealed on Twitter that WWE removed him from the current season of Total Divas and noted that he wouldn't be making a single appearance on the show. Kidd wrote:
A user noted that Kidd's "situation was something [they were] hoping would be explained this season," to which he replied:
Oh believe me I don't think they want my situation explained. I'll leave it at that for now https://t.co/2dzqZB7PSY— TJ Wilson (@KiddWWE) November 24, 2016
Kidd hasn't wrestled since he suffered a serious spinal injury during a dark match with Samoa Joe at a RAW taping on June 1, 2015. Later that month he underwent C1-C2 fusion.
