The son of Paul Bearer, Michael Moody, isn’t upset with WWE for the use of his late father’s likeness in the build to CM Punk vs. Undertaker at Wrestlemania 29. Moody just felt the closing segment of this week’s WWE Raw was hard to watch and it wasn’t what he envisioned. Below is a text message Moody sent to WWE that was relayed with permission to WrestlingNewsWorld.com:
Hey. I woke up in time to watch the tail end of the show. What you explained would happen happened. Which is fine. Just it was a little difficult to watch it play out. I put a message on Facebook last night saying that we approved it but it wasn’t what I envisioned. That I didn’t have anything to say. Well woke up this morning and that quote is being used all over “media outlets”. For the record. I was fine w it. Was hard to watch but y’all are professionals and I trust.
I apologize for any confusion caused in my earlier report. I was under the assumption Moody was upset because the people that commented on the original Facebook post buried WWE and attacked Vince McMahon. When Moody didn’t remove the comments or correct them, I took it as an endorsement.
