"Paul Bearer" has passed away. More than 20 years after he made his debut with the WWE as the manager of The Undertaker, William Moody, aka "Paul Bearer," died yesterday, according to a statement released by the WWE.

"WWE is saddened to learn of the passing of William Moody, aka Paul Bearer," the statement said. "Our deepest condolences go out to Moody's family, friends, and fans."

Our condolences as well. There's been no word on the official cause of Paul Bearer's death. But, it's crazy to hear about yet another wrestling legend passing away at a relatively young age.
