The Blue Meanie – ‘I Became Friends With Paul Bearer Through AOL Instant Messenger’


The Blue Meanie and Paul Bearer became friends through AOL Instant Messenger.

Speaking on a recent edition of the “Making the Town” podcast for Ad Free Shows, the ECW original commented on his friendship with Bearer, how they became friends, and more.


You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On his friendship with Bearer: “I love Percy Pringle — not only as an entertainer but as a friend. I got to have moments with Percy that will never be forgotten… He had the signature look — that surprised Percy look. And it popped me … I was like, ‘Who is this?’”

On how they became friends: “We became friends through AOL Instant Messanger. We would just have life conversations, and it was so cool. We talked for years — about everything — to the point where he was the one who taught me about Google.”

On spending time with him in WWE: “My first day of TV, I saw Percy and he was sitting with the production people, who were melting candles for Gangrel’s entrance … He looks at the guy melting the candles and goes, ‘Brian and I have been friends for years. He’s the only wrestler who never asked me to get booked.’ That meant the world because I was just friends with Percy for Percy. I miss him everyday.”
