Another WWE Star Dies: Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart Passes Away

STAMFORD, CT. (THECOUNT) — WWE officials have announced the sad news superstar wrestler, Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, has passed away.

Neidhart, 63, best known for being part of the powerhouse of the legendary Hart Foundation tag team with his brother-in-law, Bret “Hit Man” Hart, has died. A cause of death was not provided.

WWE is saddened to learn that Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart passed away.

Best known as the powerhouse of the legendary Hart Foundation tag team with his brother-in-law, Bret “Hit Man” Hart, Jim Neidhart was also the father of current WWE Superstar Natalya.

Neidhart began his ring career after playing professional football with the Oakland Raiders and Dallas Cowboys. He was trained by WWE Hall of Famer Stu Hart in the infamous Hart Dungeon in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and earned his ring nickname, The Anvil, after winning an anvil throwing contest.

Neidhart married Stu’s daughter, Ellie, to become a member of the legendary Hart Family before making the move to WWE along with Bret “Hit Man” Hart, Dynamite Kid and Davey Boy Smith when WWE purchased Stu Hart’s Calgary Stampede Wrestling.

Initially, Neidhart and Hart were managed by Jimmy Hart as The Hart Foundation and went on to win two WWE World Tag Team Championships.

After several years of teaming with Bret’s younger brother, Owen Hart, and some singles competition, The Hart Foundation was re-formed in controversial fashion in 1997. Consisting of Neidhart, Bret, Owen, Smith and Brian Pillman, the pro-Canadian faction stirred United States crowds into a frenzy with their anti-American sermons.

Neidhart last competed in WWE in 1997 but his legacy lives on today through his daughter, Natalya, who displays her father’s signature charisma and toughness every time she steps in the ring.

WWE extends its condolences to Neidhart’s family, friends and fans. Continue reading

Dude Finds Vintage Ferrari 308 AND Lamborghini Countach In Grandma’s Barn

Reddit user, u/eriegin, claims he stumbled on a 1981 Lamborghini Countach and a Ferrari 308 in his grandma’s garage.

Sadly, Grandma says her grandson may not end up being the recipient of the vintage barn find as she’s now looking to “get rid” of the 308 and Countach in the near future. For now though they’re “not officially for sale, per se,” says granny. So, maybe sonny boy still has a chance after all.

According to one of his comments, his late grandfather had an exotic car rental business in 1989. Unfortunately, costs became too high for him to operate the company but he at least kept a Countach and Ferrari 308. The classic Italian exotic car had been resting in the “leaky” garage for over 20 years, allowing dust and rust to cover it. Continue reading
