In a WWE career that spanned three decades, Paul Bearer (born William Moody) entertained fans as one of sports-entertainment's most recognizable managers in history. While he might have terrified youngsters with an iconic shrill voice upon his WWE arrival in 1991, Paul Bearer truly became one of WWE's most beloved personalities. (PAUL BEARER'S ALUMNI PROFILE)

Mostly known for helping to catapult The Undertaker to championships, Moody also helped launch the WWE careers of Kane and Mankind. Prior to joining WWE, Bearer worked under the persona of Percy Pringle in World Class Championship Wrestling and elsewhere, where he nurtured the talents of ring greats including Rick Rude, Steve Austin, Lex Luger and Ultimate Warrior. It should come as no surprise that when news broke of Moody's passing on Tuesday evening, more than just fans were compelled to pay respects. (OFFICIAL STATEMENT)
