Natalya had an even sadder day on March 14, 2022, than most WWE superstars. On the same day that the wrestling world tragically lost Scott Hall, Nattie also said goodbye to a close family member. Natalya’s cousin, Tanya, passed away at the age of 37.

Natalya shared the sad news on Instagram. It was noted that Tanya had struggles in life, but was deeply loved. Nattie also shared a family photo that included Tanya and her late father, Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart.

“Thinking of my beautiful cousin, Tanya tonight, who passed away today at 37. I know these last few years were hard for you, and you struggled greatly, but you were so loved by all of us, Tanya. So deeply loved.

We’ll keep you in our hearts, always. I know your dad and Grammy and Grampy will be so happy to see you.”


The loss hits extra hard because Tanya was so young. Natalya cared a lot for her. The timing of such a terrible loss could not have been worse.

WWE celebrated the life of Scott Hall on this week’s Monday Night Raw. Hall passed away just before the show went on the air after complications from surgery to repair a broken hip. Natalya also expressed her sadness over Hall’s death. Everybody at Ringside News wishes to extend our deepest sympathies to Natalya and her family in this time of mourning.
