WWE: Tyson Kidd 'Facing Lengthy Injury Lay Off'
Tyson Kidd has put a brave face on his reported neck injury, posting a snap of himself in hospital with wife and "best friend" Natalya ahead of surgery expected later this week.

The technical ace, 34, was hurt during an untelevised match against Samoa Joe earlier this month and has not appeared in the ring since.
According to reports not confirmed by WWE, the Canadian star may be out of action for over a year.
Nattie commented on her Instagram account: "Always have TJ's back... Ever since I first met him when I was ten years old. He's truly the LOVE of my life.
"Gonna get through this and be better than ever. When the going gets tough you realize WHO you can count on and what YOU are made of.
"You also see more clearly than ever before what's most important in your life."
Former tag team champ Kidd has kept a relatively low profile on social media since being injured, but it is not the first time he has been seen wearing a neck brace.
Paying tribute to the late Dusty Rhodes on Twitter a couple of weeks ago, Kidd noted the American Dream had contacted him about his injury.
Dusty was the first person to call me about my injury. He was THE guy that took the time and effort to help me find my VOICE Respect
