Tyson Kidd discusses his move to a producer role

Tyson Kidd is a Canadian executive and former wrestler currently under contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), where he does the role of producer. In WWE he held the World Tag Team Championship once (with David Hart Smith) and twice the WWE Tag Team Championship (once with David Hart Smith and once with Cesaro).

On the latest After the Bell, he discussed his move to a producer role: “So the transition was fairly smooth, to be honest. It was smooth in terms of, I like helping people with their matches. I liked helping talent with matches prior to my injury.

Obviously, then it becomes now as a producer, it’s a lot more responsibility than just me as a talent. What I didn’t know, I didn’t realize how fulfilling it actually could be. I didn’t realize that like, I was told by the boss that – he said, ‘Now you’ll kind of be like me.

We’ll vicariously live through the talent.’ And I thought those were just some words. And I’ve now come to realize that it’s very real. The fulfillment and the feeling is very, very real. When we lay something out and then the talent go out there – and I love being a part of the creative process with the talent of helping put things together and putting things in different places”.
