Former WWE and WCW star Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart has passed away at 63. As of now, the cause of death is unknown.
Neidhart is the father of current WWE star Natalya, and was a staple in WWE throughout the 80’s and 90’s competing in a tag team with Bret Hart as The Hart Foundation and later aligned with Owen Hart. In 1997, Anvil reunited with Bret Hart in the Hart Foundation alongside Owen, Davey Boy Smith, and Brian Pillman.
Following the Montrel Screw Job, Anvil left WWE alongside Davey Boy Smith and went to WCW.
WWE has a story up on their website regarding Anvil’s career, and you can check that out here.
On behalf of everyone here at Vortainment, our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Jim Neidhart.
