I think you got a personal issue that you got to take care of personally now brother.

TAMPAProfessional wrestler Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart has been arrested for possession and trafficking in a controlled substance and burglary, according to a Hillsborough County Sheriff’s arrest report. Neidhart, 55, of Wesley Chapel, was a wrestler and tag team champion with the World Wrestling Federation in the 1980s and 1990s. He was a wrestling partner of Bret Hart. Just before 3 p.m. Sunday, Neidhart was pumping gas at the A.J. Food Market, 9806 Tom Folsom Road, Thonotosassa, when he began yelling and causing a disturbance, the sheriff’s office said. The sheriff’s arrest report said he was seen opening pill bottles located in the trunk of his silver Pontiac Sunfire. When deputies arrived at the scene, he was agitated and aggressive. He was observed “ingesting multiple pills that he dropped on the ground while inside the trunk of his vehicle,” the sheriff’s office arrest report states. He was found in possession of 55.6 grams of Oxycontin and 17.4 grams of methadone. The prescription pills were in three bottles with the name Mary Cutillo written on the bottles, the sheriff’s office said.

Psh.  Oxycontin.  Big deal.  It ain’t over for The Anvil.  Not by a long shot.  Was it over when he was forced to retire from the WWF after getting hurt by Ric Flair and an ambush by the Beverly Brothers on Superstars?  Was it over when he returned in ’92 with The New Foundation then left again?  Was it over when he returned to King Of the Ring ’94 and saved Bret Hart’s title then left him to get beatdown by Diesel and The Heartbreak Kid while subsequently backstabbing him and teaming up with Owen only to lose out on the Tag Team title after being abandoned by the Teamsters?   Was it over when he returned two years later as The Who just so Vince McMahon could make fun of him?  The answer is yes.  Yes it was over after The Who.  That was absolutely humiliating.
