Hollywood, CA (March 8, 2013) – William Moody, legendary pro wrestling television personality passed away this past Tuesday in his hometown of Mobile, AL. He was 58. Moody is best known for portraying Percy Pringle III and Paul Bearer. His career stretched four decades and he entertained millions of pro wrestling fans worldwide.

Our crew is a very tight team and Percy was family. He was so looking forward to our future story plans and I’m saddened that we’ll not be able to carry them with him. He will be missed,” said CWFH Executive Producer David Marquez.
