During a current look on The Bellas Podcast, Natalya discussed her dad’s funeral service belonging of Total Divas. She likewise remembered how dissatisfied WWE were with that choice.

Jim Neidhart died from problems associated with Alzheimer’s in 2018. Since Natalya was on the Total Divas cast, the occasion was shot for the program. This did not agree with WWE higher-ups. Natalya remembered (through WrestlingInc):

“On the WWE end, they attempted to sugarcoat a lot of things. I truly wished to have the ability to share what was happening with him [Neidhart], with his condition, you understand, with him having Alzheimer’s and things. I actually wished to discuss it more since Alzheimer’s is among, like, the 5 leading causes of death on the planet. I keep in mind individuals at WWE stating, ‘‘ No, we do not desire any person at your papa’s funeral service. We do not wish to movie it.'”

Natalya was the only cast member to appear on all 9 seasons of the program, which ranged from 2013 to 2019. Jim Neidhart’s funeral service aired on the ending of season 8 in November 2018.
