WWE Breaking News: Paul Bearer Dead at 58 Years Old | Bleacher Report

The WWE posted tonight on its web site that Bearer passed away just tonight at 58 years old.

While the circumstances surrounding his passing have yet to be publicly revealed, this is a very sad turn of events for wrestling fans.

Being known as William Moody away from the ring, Bearer used his real-life profession as the owner of a funeral parlor as part of his mortician gimmick, serving as the Undertaker's on-and-off manager for over 20 years in the 1990s and 2000s.

Saddened to learn of the passing of Paul Bearer (William Moody). He was a unique, one of a kind individual both in and out of the ring. RIP
truly a legend... RIP Paul Bearer

I having watched wrestling since the early 00's, but I do remember him.

I had no idea he used his real life profession to create his character.

RIP.

Remember the rumor was Earthquake couldn't stop moving because if he did he would die?

Don't remember that.

But here's a pic of him from his short lived Sumo career before he changed careers to Pro wrestling.

I always thought that Hugo Chavez and Paul Bearer were the same person.
