Paul Bearer, the character that was played by Bill Moody passed away Tuesday afternoon at the age of 58.  Joining the WWE in 1990 he played several roles, but the most memorable was Paul Bearer, a creepy funeral director that was a manager for several of the major wrestlers in the 90s.  Although details have yet to surface on how he passed away, I am sure they will come out.

The WWE released a statement saying...  "WWE is saddened to learn of the passing of William Moody, aka Paul Bearer.  Moody made his WWE debut in 1991 as the manager of The Undertaker and went on to become a memorable part of WWE over the course of the next 20 years.  Our deepest condolences go out to Moody's family, friends and fans."
