Tributes Pour In For Jim Neidhart

Earlier today the wrestling world learned of the gutting news that Jim Neidhart had passed away at the age of 63.

Since then, legends, current performers, and pro-wrestling alumni from all over the globe have been sending their tributes and condolences to Neidhart’s family and friends.

The passing has shaken the entire wrestling world, but not many more so than the ‘Anvil’s own brother-in-law, Bret Hart.

Early in his career, Neidhart worked for Stu Hart’s Stampede Wrestling, and in 1985 married Stu’s daughter and Bret’s sister, Ellie. Jim and Bret later formed the Hart Foundation in WWF and became two-time Tag Team Champions, once in 1987, and once in 1990.

Bret briefly summed up his emotions on Twitter soon after the sad news had come to fruition:

Brian Blair, who claims to have wrestled the Hart Foundation between “300 and 600” times in WWF, was first to break the news, tweeting:

Current NXT commentator, fellow Canadian, and close friend of the Hart Family, Mauro Ranallo, stated the following:

The tributes continue to pour in from all those affiliated with the wrestling family, legends and current stars alike.
