WWE News: Natalya’s RAW Match Removed, More Details On Jim Neidhart’s Passing

Published

on

As was noted, tonight’s episode of WWE’s Monday Night RAW was set to feature Natalya with Ronda Rousey in her corner against RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss with Alicia Fox. However, due to the unfortunate news of her father and WWE Legend Jim ‘The Anvil’ Neidhart’s passing, that match has now been removed.

More details have also become available regarding Neidhart’s death, as TMZ Sports has obtained the emergency dispatch audio (this is NOT the audio of the 911 call). According to the audio, Neidhart was no longer breathing and had been confirmed to be “signal seven”, which is code for someone who is deceased. Reportedly, Neidhart took a fall at his Florida home and hit his head, leading to his untimely passing.

Additionally, TMZ Sports reports received the following statements from the Pasco County Florida Sherriff’s Office regarding what went down:

“Preliminary information indicates that [Neidhart] fell at home, hit his head, and succumbed to his injury.”

“No foul play suspected. No additional information to release at this time.”

Vickie Guerrero Talks Eddie Guerrero On Prime Time With Sean Mooney

Vickie Guerrero talks her late husband, Eddie Guerrero, on the newest Prime Time with Sean Mooney!

On the 13-year anniversary of his untimely passing, Vickie Guerrero was the guest on this week’s Prime Time with Sean Mooney to discuss her late husband, WWE Hall Of Famer Eddie Guerrero.





Among the many parts of Eddie’s career that Vickie spoke on, she discussed Eddie’s rise to “elite” status, including his struggles in WCW and early trouble with WWE:

“I don’t think it was really in WCW. You know, he had a lot of competition, a lot of politics with the bigger guys, you know to get the TV time and to get time just to be in the ring, to be able to show what he wanted to show the fans. But, I think it wasn’t until he jumped to WWE when he was treated, you know, very well and he got to be in the main storylines and when he jumped with The Radicalz that was just a great time, but of course that first night when he went out into the ring that’s when he broke him arm. You know, the elbow fractured and we just kinda sat there going…you know, that was horrible because you know, Eddie was ready for that time to start a new leaf. God humbles you in different ways and you have to kind of be patient and get back up and you try this again, you know. So…but he did love his time in WWE and to work with Chris Benoit, Rey Mysterio, Dean Malenko…I mean, that was his posse.”

EA’s Weekly SmackDown Live YouTube Report (11/13/18)

WWE YouTube
A look at the YouTube performance for this week’s WWE SmackDown Live!

As we all know, social media and other outlets have become a huge means of drawing in interaction and viewers for WWE. Most people will point to television ratings like they did during the Monday Night Wars in the late 1990’s, however that can be skewed with so many various means of watching today that do not include cable television.





As you’ve become accustomed to, here is this week’s RAW YouTube Report (3:00 PM EST, 11/15/18):

  1. *TIE* Daniel Bryan vs. AJ Styles/Becky Lynch picks her replacement – 1.8 million views
  2. Becky Lynch injured while invading RAW – 921k views
  3. Daniel Bryan & AJ Styles brawl to open SmackDown Live – 824k views
  4. Rey Mysterio vs. The Miz – 586k views
  5. The Usos rally Team SmackDown before Survivor Series – 476k views
  6. Daniel Bryan offers little explanation for his actions – 406k views

Not much of a surprise what tops our list this week, as I felt that our two clips tied at the top would most likely be neck-and-neck for that spot this week. Daniel Bryan’s big WWE Title win and heel turn, along with what was to become of the Becky Lynch vs. Ronda Rousey match were without question the two biggest talking points of the night. I find it interesting that Bryan is actually the one who wanted to turn heel (see that story here), so I think he may have been feeling what I was and that is him becoming a bit stale. Smart move by WWE to pull the trigger on the same night as Becky’s announcement, seemingly replacing one red hot angle with another all at once. Proving that is seeing four of the top six spots revolving around the segments.

Sliding into the third spot this week is Rey Mysterio taking on The Miz as he successfully hung onto his spot at Survivor Series. Oddly enough, the other match on this night with Survivor Series implications does terribly, as Jeff Hardy vs. Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas only pulls in 280k views. What this tells me is that despite how high on Almas the smart marks are, he’s still not translating in the mainstream and even Jeff Hardy couldn’t help out this week. Rey on the other hand, has continued to perform well in our YouTube reports, but this is easily his weakest showing since returning.

Our final clip at number five is the reveal of the rest of Team SmackDown for the 10-Team Survivor Series Elimination Match. Honestly, this is the definition of a “best of the rest” clip because we didn’t learn anything that couldn’t have been predicted. The Bar’s already booked, The Usos and The New Day were already on the team, so with three spots left, there’s only three other tag teams currently on the blue brand. So by default, Gallows and Anderson, The Colons, SAnitY…you’re in.
