MOBILE, AL – Death was part of his character. Now at just 58-years-old, WWE actor Bill Moody is dead.

Wrestling fans knew him as Paul Bearer; the white faced, urn carrying, flamboyant manager to The Undertaker who he guided to the WWE title before turning on him to manage his half-brother Kane.

Bearer made his then WWF debut in 1991 and was a key character for two decades.

It’s not yet clear how he died, but sources say he was in very bad health and battled obesity for years.

The WWE family took to Twitter to express their grief. Hulk Hogan wrote: “he was a great person and one of the original boys, he was what made wrestling great”.

Rest in peace, Bill Moody. Paul Bearer truly was larger than life.
