It’s a sad day for WWE fans. The man known most known for his many deaths in wrestling storylines, Paul Bearer, has passed.
As reported by WWE.com, the 58 year old man passed away with no details on the death being disclosed as of this time.
Paul Bearer, real name William Moody, was a part of wrestling for much of his life. Also known by the name Percy Pringle III, Bearer helped play manager to many stars in wrestling, a role he was playing to the day of his death.
Of course, his most noted and respected role was as Paul Bearer, manager to both the Undertaker and Kane while being the father of Kane. He would play helper, manipulator, and even controller at times in the constant struggle between the two Brothers of Destruction.
Not many managers have had such a lasting impact on the business to the level of Paul Bearer. The real shame is that he wasn’t able to be recognized for his work in WWE before his passing. I would hope that Bearer will be posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame sooner rather than later.
We here at Wrestle Enigma would like to extend our deepest condolences to all those affected by this sad loss.
