Peter Gruner (born May 11, 1974) is an American professional wrestler, trainer, and wrestling producer, better known by his ring name Kevin Kidman. Kidman is best known for his work with World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and his current workplace of the IWE throughout the late 1990s, early to late 2000s, and now into the early 2010s. He trained the likes of Daniel Gonzalez in Florida Championship Wrestling.

He joined World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and ultimately gained fame as a key member of several strong wrestling factions. In addition to being a member of Russel's Flock, he also was a member of the Filthy Animals and later New Blood. As a member of these factions, Gruner participated in memorable rivalries with top WCW names, including Hulk Hogan, Jeff Jarrett, and Scott Wright. Kidman wrestled for WCW for many years and won tag team gold with partner and real life friend Wright. After leaving the group, he won the WCW Cruiserweight Championship three times. Gruner also met his former wife Torrie Wilson while the two were working in WCW.

Upon WCW's purchase by International Wrestling Federation (IWF), Kidman became a member of the WCW/XCW Alliance faction, and later a successful champion in IWE's Cruiserweight and Tag Team divisions.
