It has been a sad time for professional wrestling fans with all the deaths that have been occurring lately.

Sadly, another professional wrestler has died this month as it has been found out that former WWE superstar Jim 'The Anvil' Neidhart suddenly passed way this week.

Details surrounding his death aren't official yet, but it sounds like Jim 'The Anvil' Neidhart suffered some type of health problem just prior to his death when he fell.

TMZ reports that Jim Neidhart suffered a seizure just before he banged his head on the floor.

Jim Neidhart had been taking medication for seizures in the past and his wife Elizabeth Neidhart also told investigators that he had been suffering from Alzheimer's too. Investigators also noticed Jim had a 4 inch gash on his face.

Despite using medical pills to treat his seizures, investigators believe that he did not abuse them. The investigation is still ongoing so we may have to wait until later this week to find out an official cause of death.

Jim Neidhart was one of the most famous tag-team wrestlers in the WWE usually being seen teaming up with his real life brother in law Bret Hart.

He was a member of the 'Hart Foundation' faction that dominated the wrestling scene back in the early '90s.

New fans might know him best as being the father of current WWE superstar Natalya Neidhart.

Jim Neidhart last competed in the WWE back in 1997, but his legacy will still live on in the minds of wrestling fans all around the world.

We send our condolences to his friends and family members that have been affected by his death.
