Hello everyone welcome to the Season Premiere of Main Event Madness! This week this show is so big, we couldn’t just have 2 hosts, we had to have 3! Making his podcasting debut is LegendsTV Host Evan Ginzburg! Joining us for this monumental episode of Main Event Madness is none other than brother of WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart, and wrestling legend in his own right, Bruce Hart! Bruce spoke about a number of things including providing a MAJOR update on the health and career of WWE Superstar Tyson Kidd. Also Bruce spoke about the state of WWE, some controversies surrounding the aftermath of Kidd’s injury and MUCH more. Some snippets of the interview are below:
On Tyson Kidd’s injury and career, and if WWE paid for his ambulance:
I was taken aback when I heard about, just the way WWE handled it. He injured his neck quite badly in that match with Samoa Joe. I was told when he [Tyson Kidd] was in the dressing room after, one agent, he indifferently said ‘go take your shower’. [Kidd] said no my neck is really f***ed up and I was told he said ‘we’re not going to pay for an ambulance’ and they were almost making it out like he was a hypochondriac. My niece Nattie, his wife, they said if you wanted to go to the hospital it’s your choice. She set out for the hospital and got lost in San Antonio and she finally got there after some kind of driving around. When they got there, they did the CT scans and MRIs and immediately determined that it was a near fatal injury. It was a fraction of an inch from either being a fatality or a paralysis from the neck down type thing. They notified the WWE of this, and I was told there were only 3 or 4 places in the US where they can perform this type of microsurgery that would stablize and do what they needed to for his neck. They had to at that point charter a some kind of air ambulance from San Antonio to Florida, which was the closest place that did that type of surgery. I heard that cost $100,000 and they had to fly him back for that. At this point I was told they havent made any contact, WWE hasn’t called, some of the wrestlers have called TJ, as i know him. At this point as far as i’ve been told it’s certain his career’s over and that he’s fortunate to not be a parapalegic.
On Owen Hart being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame:
If and when they choose to induct Dynamite [Kid] and Davey [Boy Smith], I think it would have to be a package deal. The British Bulldogs were never really singles guys in WWE, Davey was after Dynamite disappeared. I would think that it would be best if they were inducted together. I’ve mentioned it to WWE that i think Owen would be deserving of being inducted by himself, but at the same time it might be easier for them to explain, if Martha’s bitterly opposed to it which is quite possible that you have Owen Davey and Dynamite as this iconic Stampede Wrestling trio coming in together, kind of like the Von Erichs. It would make it a little less hard for her to protest it as much if he’s apart of this triage.
Other Topics Covered On This Week’s Show:
- TNA’s $100 calendar?
- Rey Mysterio/WWE reuniting?
