[6.0] "A big, burly powerhouse who married into The Hart Family, Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart carved out a legacy in professional wrestling that defined him as one of the best tag specialists in his day. Neidhart got his start in Stampede Wrestling, which he parlayed into stints with New Japan and NWA's Florida territories. Yet it wouldn't be too long into his career when he would join the WWE with a young Bret Hart. Debuting as heels under the management of Jimmy Hart, The Hart Foundation managed to secure the WWE World Tag Titles not long after their debut. The duo would both turn face and work as singles competitors at the end o the 1980s, but reformed as a tag faction and won WWE's tag titles again at Summerslam '90. Once the team split as Bret Hart began his monumental singles run, Neidhart would split his time between WCW and ECW (accomplishing little of note) whenever he wasn't appeararing in the indies. Upon his return to the WWE, Neidhart would work under a mask as an enhancement talent named Who whenever he wasn't making appearances as part of The Hart Family. Neidhart would follow Bret Hart to the WCW in 1998, but was largely used as a preliminary talent before his release. Neidhart has continued to wrestle in the indies since retiring from major-level competiton."

[6.0] "The Anvil was mainly a great tag-team specialist especially w/ his bro-in-law Bret. But as a singles he really can't offer much especially when he was stuck with a horrible gimmick like "Who. " But he's not the worst, just far from the best really. Although I gotta say his daughter is a better wrestler than him with all due respect."

[6.0] "Jim was a solid hand and a good bigger dude for Bret and Owen to play off of. That said... yeah, he really wasn't anything special in his own right. Not that it's a bad thing or anything - being a great tag team worker is an essential part of being a good talent. The world needs midcarders. Not everyone has to be exceptional."

[6.0] "While I am a much bigger fan of his Hart Foundation tag partner Bret Hart than I am of Neidhart he made up a very important part of that team to help make it one of my top five tag teams of all time. He was the perfect opposite to Bret and their differing styles complimented each other in a way that many teams tried to match in the future but in most cases failed to even come close. What is really funny though is when you think about it Neidhart was really the star of the team with Bret playing second fiddle to his powerhouse partner. The fans of the late 80's loved their wrestler large, powerful and in your face, and this is exactly what they got in Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart. Despite this success with Bret though he would not achieve much else once they disbanded and due to numerous personal problems he was in and out of employment, never getting a really decent run anywhere."

[6.0] "The anchor of the Hart Foundation, the anvil. Jim was very charasmatic and talented. He was perhaps very brutish in the ring, but he was rugged and a powerhouse. Overall, a solid hand in the ring and a real character."
