According to WZROnline.com (WZR Radio) sources, William “Paul Bearer” Moody was openly telling people over the last few weeks that he hadn’t been feeling well. Moody recently pulled himself from several indy bookings and told promoters he hadn’t been feeling well.
As Matt Boone and I (Ryan Clark) noted on Tuesday night’s live edition of eWN’s WZR Radio, Bearer sent out his last tweets on Saturday, March 2nd. One of his family members contacted several close friends and told them he had passed away around 5PM on Tuesday after being hospitalized. Former WCCW star “The Flamboyant” Eric Embry, a man whom Moody managed during his days as “Percy Pringle,” contacted us on the air live to break the story, noting he had spoken to family of the late Moody to confirm the story prior to its’ release on the internet.
On behalf of all of us here on eWrestlingNews.com, we send our condolences to the family, friends and fans of Mr. Moody. R.I.P.
