Several Vintage Photos of Paul Bearer (9)

After news broke Tuesday evening that Bill Moody, famously known as Paul Bearer, had passed away, there was a push among some WWE circles to posthumously induct the legendary manager into the WWE Hall of Fame this year.

Bearer addressed the topic to Chris Yandek of www.cyinterview.com in an interview in January, stating, “I know that I will [be in the WWE Hall of Fame]. So that’s all I need to know. Whether it’s next year or whether it’s five years from now, I know the time’s coming. … I’ve been very, very blessed in professional wrestling because I’m just a Alabama kid, from the Alabama Gulf Coast that grew up watching local territory days wrestling. … I have been all around the world. I performed in all 50 states, 28 countries and I got a paycheck every week.”

    he should have beenyears ago in the hof

    This is a no brainer. This mans impact on and passion for the industry will remain in my memory for a long time. A true professional who will be sadly missed.

  • Chip Fletcher

    It irritates me that many great performers don’t make it into the HOF until its too late and the fact that bearer wanted in makes this look horrible on wwe. He should have been inducted years ago. I am saddened for the loss of this amazing performer and person. He will be missed. Thank you Paul Bearer! “Kane is Coming!” My favorite quote!

  • Chip Fletcher

    Instead of trying and failing to get people like The Warrior into the HOF wwe should really make an effort on individuals who wouldn’t take it for granted. Bearer should have been in the HOF years ago. I mean it seemed to take ALOT of Effort to get Bruno in their HOF but they did not seem to think of Paul Bearer. Don’t get me wrong, Bruno deserves it alot, but he didnt seem to want it for a long time.

    • allan mccann

      he only wants it now cause there giving me 6 figures and a movie,bruno has done nothing but insault pro wrestling for years, when the fact is there are guys now that can only do things he dreams about. and the warrior isnt in the hof cause he was a great wrestler, its cause of the impact he made in pro wrestling,its the same reason hogan is in the hof and why cena will be

  • edroc

    mean while they put in ppl like sunny, who has been arrested like 4times since her hof induction!

    • allan mccann

      ric flair,hogan good example of hof that are bad examples lol, just cause your in the hof doesnt mean you cant be screw up, besides sunny just keeps going to jail cause she harassing her ex

  • The huntress in the night

    Pery Pringle the 3rd was around years before becoming Paul Bearer.. he has deserved being put in for years.. more power to them.

    • allan mccann

      yes but being paul bearer was what made him a legend

  • allan mccann

    i dont think he should be in just cause hes dead..he should get inducted when the undertaker does. even though hes old ,hes still to fresh to be a hall of famer , like many hof, like eddie ,edge,austin,hbk ,too early,even if hes dead

  • allan mccann

    one thing ive heard many times is paul never said one bad thing about anyone,which is so rare,and he loved this bussiness, he wasnt just another hasbeen selling his crap in a bus station like virgil ,he was in wrestling cause he loved it so much
