APTER THOUGHTS: WWE HOF INDUCTION: PAUL BEARER

Posted April 5th, 2014 by Bill Apter

Kane inducts William “Paul Bearer” Moody

Glen “Kane “ Jacobs talked how Mobile, Alabama was always his home and how Moody was hooked on the business as a teenager … He talked about how he was a ringside photographer for the Gulf Coast wrestling and years later became a mortician in “real life” … He made his debut in as Mr. X and become Percival Pringle III in Florida and Texas … In 1990 he went to WWE and joined The Undertaker as his manager and that was the birth of Paul Bearer making the Undertaker (combo with Paul) as the greatest character in WWE history and then eventually feuding with ‘ Taker…He talked about the “deep dark secret) – being Kane the Undertaker’s “long forgotten brother.” He called that epic storytelling – the best the WWE has done – but Paul was the bridge that connected the Undertaker and Kane…He talked about being on the road with Paul and making him a country music fan!…Glen said he owes everything to Paul and his final “curtain call” at WrestleMania 29.

Michael and Daniel, who are the sons of Mr. Moody, accepted the HOF induction and thanked the WWE Universe. One of his sons did an impression of him as they walked off stage.

At this point Undertaker came out with the urn and stared at the photo of Moody and held the urn up toward the photo. It was chilling!
