Paul Bearer’s Son Talks About Approving CM Punk Angle

We reported here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com Premium that Paul Bearer’s sons signed off on the usage of their father’s death in the build to CM Punk vs. The Undertaker. TMZ caught up with Bearer’s son Michael to ask him about it.

“We felt that dad would have wanted us at RAW last week and agreed to the angle … We knew Dad wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.”

    If there’s one thing I learned from reading his website, Percy loved two things in life more than anything…his family and the wrestling business. I’m certain he’d be miffed if they DIDN’T use him for this one final angle.

    As much as some people find this disrespectful, Bearer would have been totally ticked off not to be included and this whole storyline is pretty much one big send off for him which is wonderful for everyone.

    Does this mean that people are finally going to stop referring to this as ‘disrespectful’ or ‘going too far’?? (including good ol’ JR). Not only would this be approved by his blood sons, but it was also approved by his wrestling sons, Taker and Kane.

      The thing is, what some people will find “acceptable” others will find to be “disrespectful” regardless of whether someone signed off on it or not. I’m not going to presume to know what Paul Bearer would have wanted, but I’ve watched WWE for far too long to know they will exploit absolutely ANYTHING if they think they can make money off it.

      So, people are allowed to have their own opinion (including JR) on whether or not the angle has crossed the line or not and, whether people agree or disagree with it, the least they can do is respect those opinions.

    It’s almost as if the real-life death of Paul Bearer was meant to be, in a non-storyline sort of way. I believe this will be the final match of the Undertaker’s career at Wrestlemania 29. For the careers of both men to virtually culminate simultaneously, seems quite appropriate. After the Undertaker puts the final nail in CM Punk’s coffin on the evening of April 7th, I expect there to be a final visitation from Paul Bearer as the Undertaker ends his Wrestlemania career at 21-0.
