William Moody, A.K.A. Paul Bearer, Manager of the Undertaker, Dead at 58
The wrestling world lost one of the best managers of recent history. Bill Moody, better known as Paul Bearer, has died at 58-years-old.
Although he hasn't been seen in WWE programming for a few years, he was best known as the macabre manager of The Undertaker. When he wasn't managing, he would also host an interview segment called 'The Funeral Parlor'. He was always entertaining, especially at live events. When I would watch WWE live I would spend more time watching him dance around ringside with his hilarious facial expressions. I once emailed him out of the blue saying how he was one of my favorites and how I wished him luck in getting into the WWE Hall of Fame in the future. He actually took the time to email me back to thank me.
His health problems were very well known as he would blog about it often on his website. Details about his death are still unknown.
We'll have more as soon as we find out more.
