As a life-long professional wrestling fan, I have been saddened too much recently. In the past couple of weeks we’ve lost “Big Van Vader,” “Nikolai Volkov,” and now…Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart.
In the mid 1980s to early 1990s, Neidhart was one half of “The Hart Foundation,” a WWE (then WWF) champion tag team with his real life brother-in-law, Brett Hart. When he was in the ring, Neidhart was known for his brute strength, reddish-blonde goatee, and sinister laugh. Out of it, he was regarded as a big-hearted family man and good friend.
His daughter Natalya is currently on of the biggest women’s division stars in the WWE and has already been women’s champion once.
