A question about Jim Neidhart?
When did he retire and what is he doing now
He later reunited with Bret as part of his stable of Canadian sympathizers. After Bret left the company on bad terms in 1997, Neidhart followed him to World Championship Wrestling (though not immediately--he would be beaten up and humiliated by D-Generation X prior to his departure) where he formed a tag team with Davey Boy Smith, who also followed Bret there. Although this was his first true big-money deal, they were rarely utilized by WCW head Eric Bischoff. They achieved little in-ring success, and he was eventually released and returned to the independent circuit.
In early 2005, Neidhart and his wife Ellie were accused in a lawsuit of stealing almost $10,000 in valuables from businessman John McCann. McCann claimed the items, mainly jewelry, disappeared after the couple visited his Calgary home and that he later bought them back from the pawn shop where they turned up. The Neidharts denied any knowledge of the incident. The suit was later dropped and no charges were filed.
Neidhart continues to wrestle on the Canadian independent circuit and is pursuing a career in real estate. His daughter, Nattie Neidhart, is also a wrestler and currently signed to a WWE developmental contract.
