Paul Bearer passes away

WWE has announced that Paul Bearer, real name Percy Pringle, died on the night of March 5th. He was 58. Bearer was the longtime manager of The Undertaker, and also the manager and storyline father of Kane.

In his real life job, Pringle was a funeral director. He was brought in to WWE for the express purpose of managing the Phenom.

Expect a tribute on Raw Monday, and possibly a Hall of Fame induction to honor him as he passes so close to WrestleMania 29.
