WWE announced that Tyson Kidd will be out of action for six to eight months following knee surgery. The injury was described as ligament and meniscus tears in his right knee and a fracture in his tibia plateau.

Kidd also commented on WWE Champion C.M. Punk labeling him a workhorse in his second pipe bomb promo. "I’ve always considered myself a workhorse, and I’ve definitely used that word to describe myself over the last two years,” Kidd said. "I go out there and give it my all every single match — and I’ve been doing that for 17 years.

"Whether in WWE or Japan or Europe or back home in (Calgary, Alberta’s) Stampede Wrestling, it’s always been the same story. In a worst-case scenario, I will outwrestle everybody on this show. Anyone that’s gonna outwrestle me had better perform after me, because I’m going to outperform everybody that I saw before me." Read the full story and more comments from Kidd at

Powell's POV: Initial reports suggested that Kidd could miss up to a year due to the severity of the injury, so the six to eight month prognosis is actually good news. Here's hoping WWE uses him better once he returns. His tag team with Justin Gabriel has a lot of potential and I was hoping they would become the team to chase Rhodes Scholars, assuming Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow get a run with the straps.
