• Old School WWF Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 65th birthday of Old School WWF Legend Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart.
After touring the NWA territories for a while, he joined the World Wrestling Federation in early 1985 and was soon paired with Bret “The Hitman” Hart as a Tag Team that ended up becoming one of the greatest teams in professional wrestling history, The Hart Foundation.
They teamed until 1991, when both Jim and Bret went on to concentrate on their singles careers, but Neidhart soon ended up teaming with Bret’s younger brother Owen Hart as ‘The New Foundation’, a team that didn’t last very long but was eventually continued in 1994 & 1995 when they were both heels.
Jim returned to the WWF for a short stint in 1996, portraying the masked wrestler “Who”, but eventually had his last major run with the World Wrestling Federation in 1997, when he was a member of the ‘Hart Foundation’ faction, alongside Bret Hart, The British Bulldog, Owen Hart & Brian Pillman, before jumping ship to WCW in early 1998.
Neidhart was married to Ellie, a sister of Bret & Owen, and their daughter – as seen on WWE’s reality show ‘Total Divas’ – is WWE Veteran Natalya.
In 2019, The Anvil was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as one half of The Hart Foundation.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
February 8, 1955 – August 13, 2018
• Vince McMahon Not A Fan Of NXT Wrestler
As we all know by now, WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and NXT wrestler Matt Riddle had a confrontation backstage at Royal Rumble 2020 (tap here for details).
According to the Wrestling Observer, Vince McMahon is not a fan of Riddle as he thinks Riddle is an “outside” guy and has no respect for the hierarchy of the business:
“Regarding social media, the issues with Vince McMahon and Matt Riddle are due to his social media posts and challenges. Brock Lesnar doesn’t like him for it and Lesnar has tremendous pull with Vince.
Vince also sees him as an outside guy and feels Riddle has no respect for the hierarchy of the business by challenging Goldberg and Lesnar.”
