WWE: "Nattie" Neidhart

Natalie "Nattie" Neidhart was born May 27, 1982 in Calgary, Alberta. She is a Canadian professional female wrestler who is currently signed with World Wrestling Entertainment. She's a third generation wrestler, the daughter of wrestler Jim Neidhart, and the granddaughter of wrestling legend Stu Hart.

After she appeared with Eric Bischoff's now-defunct Mat Rats promotion as a ring announcer, Nattie trained under her uncles in the famous Hart Dungeon. She debuted in 2000 in Stampede Wrestling, a promotion owned by her uncles Ross and Bruce, and in 2003 she began a feud with Belle Lovitz that lasted until late 2005 when the former enemies joined forces against the Myers Family.

In the summer of 2004 Neidhart made a tour of England, and in March 2005, she embarked on a two month wrestling tour of Japan to hone her skills. While in Japan she was billed as Nadia Hart. She returned to Canada on May 6, and promptly turned heel, announcing that "Nasty Nattie" had been born. On June 18, 2005 Neidhart debuted in the Edmonton, Alberta based Prairie Wrestling Alliance promotion, renewing her feud with Belle Lovitz.

Neidhart defeated Anna Marie, Belle Lovitz and Ma Myers in a four way match to become the first Stampede Wrestling Pacific Women's Champion on June 17, 2005. She later vacated the title.

In addition to her professional wrestling career, Neidhart has received training in amateur wrestling and mixed martial arts. On October 8, 2006 Neidhart won the ECCW Supergirls Title from Ivory ( Lisa Moretti) on a Big Time Wrestling show in Newark, California. On October 27, 2006 she lost the Supergirls Title in Surrey, British Columbia to Nikki Matthews in a three-way match that also involved Veronika Vice.

On January 4, 2007, Neidhart signed with the WWE. She made her Deep South Wrestling debut on February 15, 2007 assisting in the intermission raffle. She made her wrestling debut on March 8, 2007 losing to Krissy Vaine. Then on March 15, 2007 she teamed up with Shantelle Taylor to defeat Angel Williams and Krissy Vaine.

As of January 2007, WWE was reportedly looking to form the New Hart Foundation with Teddy Hart, Harry Smith, T.J. Wilson, and Nattie Neidhart.

In mid-2007, after the WWE dropped Deep South, Nattie and T.J. Wilson were moved to the WWE's new development territory, Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), alligning themselves and forming the Hart Foundation 2.0.
