The wrestling industry was sent into shock yesterday, as it was confirmed Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart had passed away. As we previously reported, Natalya reacted to her father’s death via social media. She has now continued to react to several messages from a number of wrestling personalities.

Natalya first responded to a message from Hulk Hogan, who was extremely saddened by the death of someone he believed to be there for him through all the bad and good.

Natalya’s uncle, Bret “The Hitman” Hart obviously chimed in on the death of Neidhart. Hart is both stunned and saddened at the loss, unable to comment any further.


Independent wrestler and former WWE Superstar Cody [Rhodes] chimed in on the matter. Cody claimed Natalya is one of the kindest and most genuine people in the wrestling industry, and she became that way due to her father.

Finally, Natalya quoted a tweet by Ric Flair, noting that her father had tried to do the “Wooooo” chant with her but they weren’t as successful as the Flairs.
