During his career with the wrestling organization, Bearer was a manager to The Undertaker, Mankind, Rick Rude, Kane and Vader, and was famous for his eerie appeal.
Broken up about Paul's death, 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."
The cause of the wrestling icon's death is still fuzzy, but according to reports, he apparently suffered from morbid obesity and had gallbladder issues.
