Jim the Anvil dead at 63
« on: August 13, 2018, 06:08:20 pm »

According to Ross Hart, his brother-in-law, the death was due to a grand mal seizure related to the Alzheimer's Disease that Neidhart had been suffering from for some time.

Recently appeared as a comic character on Total Divas.  In one off camera but audio recorded segment, Neidhart was talked into entering rehab.

 Alzheimer's at 63?  Wow.

The Anvil was a great wrestler.  Sad.

He was a good performer.  Sad his life ended at a relatively early age.  I saw him in what may have been his last day in Mid-South before going on to Memphis as a part of the trade that brought the Rock-n-Roll, Midnight Express and Terry Taylor to Mid-South.  It was 1/21/84 in Hampton.  Mid-South had been in Jackson the night before and were going to Little Rock the night of the 21st.   Neidhart-Reed vs JYD-King Parsons was the main  event that afternoon.  It was wild.  Glad I had a chance to see him at least once in person.

9:05 AM PT -- The Pasco Sheriff's Office tells TMZ Sports ... "Preliminary information indicates that [Neidhart] fell at home, hit his head, and succumbed to his injury."

"No foul play suspected. No additional information to release at this time."

Wrestling legend Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart has died, according to the WWE. He was 63.

Neidhart passed away early Monday morning after suffering a medical emergency at a home in Florida. 

According to the emergency dispatch audio, emergency personnel were called around 6:30 AM about a man having seizures and convulsions.

At one point, the dispatch operator says, "They think he might be Signal 7" -- which is code for a dead person.

Jim was a WWF superstar in the mid-'80s and early '90s as a member of The Hart Foundation tag team with Bret "The Hitman" Hart ... managed by Jimmy Hart.

ALZ can hit people even in their late 40s/early 50s. It's rare, but it does happen.
