WWE star Natalya, the daughter of the late Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, released a statement on Twitter this evening regarding the sudden passing of her father earlier today.

She was scheduled to face RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss in a non-title match at tonight’s RAW taping in Greensboro, but is no longer being advertised for the event.

Natalya wrote the following on Twitter on Monday evening about her late father.

“I can’t put into words how hard it is going to be for myself and our family to have to say goodbye to my dad. He meant the world to us, and nothing will ever replace the special times we shared together as a family. My dad was always a fighter and an incredibly special person. There was no one like him! I’m just going to miss him so much. We are going to hold all of the moments we had with him close to our hearts forever and never let them go. I promise to keep your memory alive. We love you so much, Daddy! On behalf of my entire family, we would also like to personally thank everyone for the outpouring of thoughts and prayers. It’s meant so much to us.”
