Natalya says she has no problem with the death of Jim ‘The Anvil’ Neidhart being the focus of her current storyline, because it feels like her father is getting “one last run.”

“My dad was a professional wrestler,” Neidhart told Yahoo in a new interview. “He was a WWE superstar, he was a WWE legend before he passed away and I feel like in some crazy way this is like my dad is having one last run.”

Adding, “I feel like if I asked my dad right now, ‘Daddy, how do you feel about me doing this storyline?’ My dad would say go for it. He understood pro wrestling, he understood how, for fans to become emotionally invested in stories, there has to be emotionally charged content.”

As we previously reported, Anvil passed away in August. 

In case you missed it, Ruby Riott displayed a table with Neidhart’s image plastered over it on the latest episode of Raw and told Natalya she’d throw her through it at TLC.
