The Undertaker says Paul Bearer played a major role for making the gimmick successful
The Undertaker is completing thirty years in WWE. The company is paying tribute to the legend with WWE Network’s programming, “30 Days Of The Deadman” which started the following Hell in a Cell pay-per-view and it features a documentary every week. It will continue to air until Survivor Series on Sunday, November 22.
The latest show featured The Mortician: The Story of Paul Bearer, which is a documentary that showed the story of late, Paul Bearer and his contribution to the career of The Undertaker.
Aged nine, Paul Bearer had witnessed the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy. This tragic incident had affected him and he took the decision of becoming a real-life mortician. Eventually, he stepped foot into the world of pro wrestling.
In a clip of the documentary, Paul Bearer can be seen discussing his two dreams, which were to become a funeral director and a pro wrestler. It also features interviews of Bruce Prichard, Kane, Mick Foley, and The Undertaker.
The Undertaker took to Twitter and said that Paul Bearer was an influence in his career and without him, it would not have been possible to get the best out of ‘The Undertaker’ character.
The Phenom said, “Paul Bearer was an iconic manager in front of and behind the curtain and was a great friend and great person in my life. I hope this shows just a portion of the man he was and the role he played in helping make The Undertaker so successful. #TheMortician @WWENetwork.”
