As we’ve reported, former WWE Superstar Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart passed away yesterday. Last night WWE paid tribute to the former Tag Team Champion with a video package. Neidhart’s daughter, Natayla, was scheduled to face Alexa Bliss on Monday Night Raw, but of course that didn’t happen and she wasn’t on the show.
One tag team decided to pay homage to Neidhart during their match last night. The Revival, Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder, used one of Neidhart’s signature tag team finishers during their bout. Wilder and Dawson hit Matt Hardy with the Hart Attack. You can check out a GIF from the moment here:

WWE Hall Of Famer Bubba Ray Dudley didn’t seem to be a fan of this. He took to Twitter and voiced his displeasure for Dawson and Wilder using the move as a mid match spot instead of a finish:
They used one of the best tag team finishes of all time as a mid match “spot” … WTF?!?

Dash and Scott didn’t seem to pay too much mind to Ray’s comments, but responded nonetheless:
Thanks, Bully. Always appreciate your input. https://t.co/DS0mXjEswF
