Former WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion Natalya took to social media earlier this week to share a stunning gift from fellow SmackDown Superstar B-Fab.
B-Fab gifts emotional drawing of Natalya and her Father Jim ‘The Anvil’ Neidhart
The Canadian veteran is currently off of WWE TV as she recovers from a nasal injury but has been training with the young Hit Row star as she works her way back to full health.
And in an emotional post on her Instagram account, Natalya revealed a stunning pencil drawing of her and her Father, the late WWE Hall Of Famer Jim ‘The Anvil’ Neidhart, gifted to her by B-Fab.
After our practice today, @briana_brandy gave me this gift— which is truly one of the nicest things I’ve ever received. It’s a drawing of my dad and me, from an incredible artist, #miroslavsunjkic. It’s the original, all done by hand in pencil. This is one of my favorite pictures of my dad and I together. I can’t wait to frame it and keep it forever. Thank you, Bri
Natalya would also take to Twitter to share the artwork with fans, describing the gift as ‘priceless’.

Neidhart twice held the WWE Tag Team Championship with Bret ‘Hitman’ Hart and was regularly seen alongside his daughter on hit reality show Total Divas. Unfortunately, the star was suffering from early on-set Alzheimer’s disease and passed away aged just 63 in 2018.
Natalya suffered the facial injury during a match with Shayna Baszler on 4th November edition of SmackDown and underwent surgery soon after. Whilst clearly working towards an imminent return to the ring, her return date is not yet known.
