We are less than a week away from WrestleMania weekend and WWE’s Hall of Fame induction ceremony. This year’s class is stacked with legends who are highly deserving of the accolade, including Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart. Neidhart is being inducted alongside Bret Hart as their duo, The Hart Foundation.
Sadly, “The Anvil” won’t be at the ceremony as he passed away August of last year. WWE announced the induction on this past Monday night Raw after his daughter Natalya‘s match.
In a blog post she wrote for the Calgary Sun, Natalya spoke about how she brought her father to WrestleMania 34 last year and how much that trip meant to him.
“Last year, I brought my dad to WrestleMania 34. I had this feeling that he needed to come as I wanted him to be around his old friends, family and our WWE Universe, and to have everyone make a fuss over him like I knew they would. And they did indeed. My dad felt like the belle of the ball! Shane McMahon made a mad dash to my dad to hug him and tell him what he meant to him. He also ran into … so many others who he greatly respected and shared moments in and out of the ring with. My dad knew the WWE family was his family and he was right where he belonged: home.
Natalya also took the time to discuss how badly her father longed for a Hall of Fame induction. You can read the post in full at this link.
