From the Dungeon to the Doghouse: Tyson Kidd

Tyson Kidd was the last ever graduate of the Hart Family Dungeon, an acolade he is never uncomfortable spreading around. Tyson started in the WWE as a tag-team remake of the British Bulldogs, and went on to be like a disrespected Bulldog: Stuck in the Doghouse. Tyson Kidd has got nowhere left to go in creatives eyes, but the IWC knows that the WWE Creative team is blinder than a newborn snake.
A natural born Cruserweight Champion, but with the Cruserweight Strap out of commission, the next applicable thing for Tyson would (and should) be the United States champion, but I digress. Tyson Kidd looks like he should be a champion (especially with that amazing tuff of hair he used to have, I cried when he shaved it.), but not a World Champion, ever. WWE's problem now (one of the many) is that they think that nobody will be successful without a World title, but look at Rick Rude, Mr. Perfect, and even The Honkey Tonk Man.
One of the most pure, skilled, and fantastic wrestlers on the roster, he can do almost every mat and submission move thinkable, but his finisher is limited to a spinning Fisherman buster, instead of the many high flying, self-destructive, and gloriously elegant moves he can do otherwise. Tyson Kidd is one of the many jobbers who can put on a better show wrestling than Stone Cold ever could randomly beating up a referee, or John Cena could in another bad, time wasting promo
I don't even know how Tyson is on the Mic, because WWE is scared of putting him anywhere near the shows that don't begin with N, and end with XT, a sad fate for an amazingly talented man. But if he needs some work on the mic, at least put him on the mic for improvement, and not limiting him to just wrestling.
Does anyone remember the bodyguard that Tyson Kidd had for about 2-3 weeks in 2010? Does anyone but me remember his heel turn at Old School 2010? Or even the fact that he actually won a U.S. Championship Number 1 Contenders match on Superstars in early 2011 when Daniel Bryan was the Champ? Needless to say, Tyson must have pissed someone in the WWE off, because his storylines only last a maximum of 3 weeks on SD! and RAW.
WWE needs to take a risk with Tyson Kidd, they need to try to build him up as a heel on one of the major shows, and see if the crowd will get behind him, instead of him being in dark matches, or restricted to NXT. Allow this Kid(d) some time on the microphone to see what he has to offer to the company, and when all is said and done, give him a minor title. Stop having him rely on the "Hart Legacy" thing, because neither him nor Natalya are benefiting from it, because people will compare Tyson to Davey Boy or Dynamite Kid, even while he is still a jobber, lowering people's initial perspective on him.
