Former World Wrestling Entertainment personality Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart has died at the age of 63, WWE confirmed Monday morning.
Neidhart died after hitting his head in a fall at his home, the Pasco Sheriff's Office told ESPN. They told ESPN he "succumbed to his injury."
Neidhart was best known as a tag-team wrestler alongside his brother-in-law, Bret Hart. The pair won two WWE World Tag Team Championships together.
Neidhart's daughter, Natalie, currently performs for WWE's Raw brand under the name "Natalya."
"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 said in a press release confirming Neidhart's death.
"WWE extends its condolences to Neidhart’s family, friends and fans."
Fellow retired performer Ric Flair was among those who also offered their condolences on social media.
