Being the huge wrestling fan that I am, I am deeply bummed about the passing of Paul Bearer. I'm even thinking of calling in sick to work tomorrow nite so I can properly mourn. I wonder if my Boss will understand?

Probably not, but I'm gonna try it anyway.

In any event, RIP Paul Bearer, you WILL be missed :(   Here's the WWE's official statement:

WWE is saddened to learn of the passing of William Moody, aka Paul Bearer. Moody made his WWE debut in 1991 as the manager of The Undertaker and went on to become a memorable part of WWE over the course of the next 20 years.

We can think of a better way to memorialize Paul Bearer than by reminiscing over some of his finest moments. Check it out:
