It’s been over 4 years since WWE Hall of Fame and Natalya’s father, Jim Neidhart, ‘The Anvil’ has left us. In one of the interviews, Natalya revealed the person she spoke to first after he passed away.

Vince McMahon had been a person Natalya could turn to
Natalya called Vince McMahon that day and said, ” I’m so sorry, I can’t do the show. My dad just died“. Natalya had a performance that night at the WWE ring. It was so kind of him to make Natalya feel like she had a person in him to turn to at the worst hour outside of work. He has been a clear supporter for Natalya in and outside the show.
Vince McMahon also knew how difficult it would be for Natalya to get the incident out of her mind. So he called her up and told her to be there for Rhonda at the 2022 SummerSlam. This was just after 4 days of Jim Neidhart passing away, the day of his funeral.
