The wrestling world is in a state of shock as we grieve the sudden passing of William “Paul Bearer” Moody. Details regarding his passing are unknown although we are able to confirm Moody hadn’t been feeling well lately.
He was under a WWE Legend’s contract, where the company was able to market the Paul Bearer gimmick and use him for promotional appearances, but he was still able to work routine indy dates. Moody appeared at last Saturday’s Gulf Coast Wrestling show in Theodore, Alabama.
Moody’s wife, Dianne, died after battling cancer just over four years ago on January 31, 2009.
