Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart passed away early this morning after being rushed to the hospital. Now we have new details concerning Neidhart’s passing and they are incredibly sad.

Bruce Hart, Jim’s brother-in-law confirmed that Neidhart had a grand mal seizure when he hit his head which caused him to be rushed to the hospital.

Neidhart had been suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease as well and his seizure was an awful complication of that illness.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Hart family as they go through this difficult time. As noted, Natalya’s match against Alexa Bliss has been pulled from tonight’s episode of Raw due to her father’s passing.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
