Does anyone else miss Tyson Kidd?

It always saddens me. The man was just beginning to reach his potential right before his neck injury. Imagine the amazing matches he could have had, like a WWE title series with AJ Styles on SmackDown. Hell, if I had it my way he would've been a great heel to end the streak. What do you guys think?

TOP 10


10: Kaz Hayashi
9: Scott Norton
8: Chris Kanyon
7: Sean O'Haire
6: Frank Gotch
5: George Hackenschmidt
4: Tom Cannon
3: Alexander Munro
2: The Great Kabuki
1: Dolph Ziggler/Nick Nemeth


TOP 5 MATCHES


5: Gotch vs Hackenschmidt on April 3rd, 1908 in Dexter Park
4: Gotch vs Hackenschmidt on September 4th, 1911 in Comiskey Park
3: Nagata and Manabu Nakanishi vs Tatsutoshi Goto and Michiyoshi Ohara
2: Gustav Fristensky vs. Josef Smejkal - 1913
1: Ziggler vs Punk - Royal Rumble 2012

Definitely hate that his career ended the way it did. Don't want that for anybody, especially of that magnitude, considering he could've died.


That said, he wasn't going to get a push. And why him, of all people, to end the streak?

You right.


I just remembered Curt Hawkins losing streak.


In fact, Tyson being in Hawkins spot is infinitely more believable than him ending the streak.

Yes, he's someone I always rooted for and liked. I loved his heel work when he had Natalya as his valet and in NXT. She was much more enjoyable in that role. Also loved the dynamic he, her and Cesaro had. While I loved the Bar, the Cats & Facts team was equally as likable for me.

He was getting better and better, he was much more comedic and sarcastic in his later years. More confident, showing more of his personality. Seeing him on Total Divas (before I stopped watching) also made him more likable and helped people get to know him better.

With WWE's recent interest in trying to push all these smaller underdog cruiserweight characters like Gable, Cedric, Ali, Humberto, etc ...who knows what could have been?

I liked him a lot and he was just starting to develop a personality when his career ended, he also brought out the best of that bum Cesaro.

Re: Does anyone else miss Tyson Kidd?

Nope. There's plenty of guys on the roster who are capable of the high quality matches he had. You have to be really special for me to have an emotional connection with you. Eddie Guerrero or a cm punk he is not.

That being said he was a lot of fun and the only guy in existence to get me to care about Trent Beretta or yoshi tatsu

He was underrated as hell but a solid worker in the Midcard enhancement position was his ceiling, No way he was going any higher.
