Jim Ross Reacts To The Passing Of Paul Bearer, Snitsky To Play “The Undertaker” In Upcoming Movie, The Miz

Paul Bearer

– WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted an article in remembrance of memorable wrestling manager William “Paul Bearer” Moody, who passed away Tuesday at the age of 58-years-old after being diagnosed with a blood clot over the weekend.

“As great as Taker’s run has been in WWE, arguably the most marvelous, long term run in WWE history, it would have not been the same without Paul Bearer being added to the presentation in the Phenom’s formative years,” wrote Ross, who he personally referred to as Percy. “They went together like BBQ sauce on a great rack of ribs and created a presentation that including the perfect music, with perfect lighting and special effects to go along with the amazing package of the Dead Man and his scary, unmistakable figure of a manager.”

He continues, “Percy was so proud of his sons and loved his family deeply. His southern roots ran deep as he never moved, for long any way, from Alabama. During the football season we would exchange messages or talk about his Crimson Tide and my Sooners hoping that they would meet for the national title in our life time. If I got a ‘Roll Tide’ message on my phone or on Twitter I did not have to think twice about who sent it.”

– Former WWE wrestler Gene Snitsky has been cast in the film adaptation of Bill Bean’s book Dark Force. He will play “the central supernatural entity in the film,” with the character billed as “The Undertaker.” Additional information on the film is available here.

– The Miz appeared on The Opie & Anthony Show on Sirius 206/XM 105 today promoting the release of The Marine 3: Homefront on DVD and Blu-ray. The show replays at 8:00 p.m.
