Wrasslin Wednesday: RIP Paul Bearer but an Awesome Figure Remains !!

Sad news to report on this edition of Wrasslin Wednesday, William Moody aka Paul Bearer, has passed away at the age of 58 on Tuesday March 5th, 2013. Sad news for anyone who was witness to the Undertakers early rise to fame with Paul Bearer at his side. Condolences to friends and family of Mr. Moody.
Even though his departure is sad news, his figure is truly a classic ! Packaged with Mankind for the Managers Series 1 from Jakks Pacific in 1997. Paul Bearer is one of the best of the early Jakks figures.

Limited articulation is made up for with exceptional detail and one of the best accessories ever produced .... an URN !! This figure captures Paul Bearer's likeness perfectly. The urn fits well in his right hand while he points the way to the top for his Undertaker !!

Got something to add ? All are welcome to leave a comment !


  1. I have this, the Jakks CS one, and the justtoys one that sits in the Monster Cafe display case.

  2. Was sad to have heard he passed on he was a great character in the world of Pro Wrestling/Sports Entertainment. I remember seeing him in World Class as Percy Pringle and then not long afterwards in the WWF as Paul Bearer and did not put together the fact they were one in the same until shortly there after.

    1. Never got to see much World Class over here, but I read about it a lot in PWI and the Wrestler. He really made that character work with the Undertaker .... RIP !
