Tyson Kidd: My WWE Producer Role Is So Much More Than My In-Ring Career
Kidd has been working as a coach and producer backstage
Tyson Kidd believes his current role in WWE, as a coach and producer, far exceeds anything he did in the ring as a wrestler.
Kidd has served WWE in his backstage roles since suffering a career-ending injury in 2015, with the former Tag Team champion now exclusively producing the women's matches for the promotion.
Kidd has received a lot of praise from female superstars for his dedication to helping them develop and put on quality bouts, and the 40-year-old believes what he's doing right now means much more than whatever he was achieved in the ring.
Speaking on WWE's The Bump, he said: "I’ve taught people before, but I was younger, and I was able to get in there physically and teach them what I was trying to explain. I didn’t know in this role if I was going to be able to do that same thing. I didn’t know if I could communicate verbally the message I’m trying to get across. It was a learning process for me to figure out how to balance that.
“Then, I shadowed so many great people. You had Kayla [Braxton] interviewing Michael Hayes earlier; Michael has taught me so much. Bret and Jamie Noble, all these guys I shadowed.
"And then, somehow, someway, I fell into and started producing more and more women’s matches until it became exclusive now. But I love it. It’s so much more than my own career. It’s more sentimental. Not to take away from my own career, but what I’m doing now is not even close. The comparison is not even close."
