    Saw this earlier, sad news especially with how they say it happened, believe one of his in laws posted something on Instagram about him battling Alzheimer’s.

    He was one of my favorites when I was a kid. I loved his goatee. I grew a long goatee just like it about 7-8 years ago because I thought it was so cool.

    RIP Jim.

    Up there with Ted DiBiase when it comes to the greatest laughs in wrestling.

    Bret was my guy growing up and when I started it always felt like Anvil was his heavy to protect him so he was awesome in my book. Man rough times for the Hart Family.

    To an old school legend. Rest in Peace, Anvil.

    Always thought he was a bad ass. RIP

    Really a major loss. Trained by Stu and part of the family for 40 years. He was a master worker and even though we’d all like to forget his run on TNA, his legacy with both Owen and Bret is untarnishable. And it seems it was an accident too, which is just awful

    Getting old sucks.

    I'm sorry to hear this.

    Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

    And it seems it was an accident too, which is just awful

    Yeah this has to be the hardest part for such a close and connected family like the Harts, we all get old and accept that but they have had to deal with a lot of tragic deaths something no family should ever have to deal with especially time and time again.

    But like most of the Hart family he dedicated his life to entertaining everyone else families and because of that will be remember as a legend in the industry and by millions around the world just like Owen.

    Just saw this, for all the complaints about the WWE they do know how to pay tribute to their fallen stars:

    Just reread Bret's book last month so Jim's fresh on my mind. Sad news for sure.
    I too grew a long goatee when I could cause the anvil's was awesome. And the laugh. Oh that laugh... I can hear it now.
    Rip Anvil.
