TJ Wilson (Tyson Kidd) suffered what should have been a catastrophic spinal cord injury during a match in 2015. Wilson’s in-ring career was ended. Reports since then have indicated that it is miracle that he can walk and function normally. TJ has made the best of the cards he was dealt and has become a popular producer at WWE.
Despite the incredible luck, TJ did suffer a very serious injury. The toll it takes on him day to day certainly affects his life. While he can live a mostly normal life, there are going to be side effects from a damaged spinal cord.
There have been reports that TJ Wilson hasn’t been around much at WWE. Rumors swirled that TJ had quit the company. Dave Meltzer offered a clarification in this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
“Regarding TJ Wilson not being around, within the company there was word that he was quitting weeks ago but we were told that was miscommunication and he would be back and he’s on good terms with WWE.
He’s taking time off to help heal up his neck. If you recall, his neck issues were such (basically the same injury as the late Christopher Reeve) that he was very lucky to be alive and it’s an absolute miracle he’s not confined to a wheelchair. The fact he’s able to function well doesn’t change that his neck is in terrible shape and can flare up.”
TJ Wilson seems to be on good terms with WWE. It’s no surprise that he might have needed some time away from work given his injury. Hopefully, TJ is feeling better soon!
