WWE has acknowledged Tyson Kidd's knee injury on WWE.com. The report says that Kidd will need six to eight months to recover, ahead of the originally believed twelve months of recovery time needed.

Kidd said in the report, "This is the first time in 17 years I've ever been injured, and this is the first time that sports-entertainment has ever been taken away from me in my life. There has never been an injury I haven't been able to work through. I've never missed a day being sick. I've never missed a day being hurt. I guess that's the ‘workhorse' thing Punk talked about."
