WWE’s Paul Bearer Dies

William Moody, better known as the WWE’s Paul Bearer, died Tuesday, WWE confirmed. He was 58. No cause of death has been released, although TMZ reported that Moody had complained of a blood clot in the days prior to his death. Moody hosted a show on WWE called The Funeral Parlor and was famous for his pasty-white makeup and signature phrase “Ooohh yesss.” Moody joined the WWE in 1990 and quickly became associated with the performer the Undertaker, a character who claimed he had mystical powers and was undead. Moody, originally from Alabama, had a real-life degree in mortuary science.
