Former WWE Superstar Davey Boy Smith Jr. recently spoke with Hannibal TV to discuss his former tag team partner Tyson Kidd's injury that has kept him out of the ring. Davey detailed the significance of Kidd's injury and revealed if he thinks he'll ever wrestle again. Here's what he had to say:
"For him to have survived that, that's a testimate to him and to the training we endured as his neck muscles were that strong to hold everything together. He's doing good, I was just down there earlier last month and he's training. I actually introduced him to an awesome massage therapist named Jason Cairo. These guys are awesome massage guys and the range of motion in his neck has already - night and day compared to what it was before. Is that to say he's ever going to wrestle again? I don't know. I don't think so. That's not because of him but there's a lot of risks if something happens or if he lands wrong and he becomes basically a vegetable. And WWE, to their credit, they're pretty good with keeping things with their rules nowadays, protecting talent and stuff like that. Daniel Bryan, or Bryan Danielson, he's another example of they won't let him back into the ring. I'm sure if he was wrestling safe every night and only wrestling sometimes, he could probably pull it off but let's say someone hits him acci- this isn't ballet. Somebody hits him or he lands wrong, and his concussion thing comes back and it becomes exponential or his neck injury or something. That's kind of the risk they're looking at. It's tough to say, I wish he could come back, but for the sake of his health, I don't think he's going to."
