The impression given to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter on Tyson Kidd’s injury is that it’s a serious one. We noted last week via The Observer that Kidd had a spinal cord injury, essentially a broken neck. The injury came in the recent RAW dark match against Samoa Joe. Since the concussion lawsuits, WWE has been secretive about releasing information on injuries. It was believed before that Kidd may avoid surgery but now there’s talk that he may need surgery, which would mean a lengthy amount of time away from the ring.

It was noted that Edge and Steve Austin, who have had neck problems in the past, both called Kidd to offer moral support and advice.
