This Flair being Miz's mentor crap is pretty awful. Maybe I just don't get Miz, but I don't see him as being "must-see" at all. I think if Flair is going to mentor someone, he would be much better suited for the guy Miz wrestled last night (Ziggler).

I can't believe I never thought of something until I saw them around the ring together. DiBiase being the manager for Prime Time Players could be absolutely amazing. But unfortunately, managers don't really exist anymore....


Well they had a great one until he made a R-rated joke on an open mic on a PG prime time show and refused to apologize.

ehhhh, maybe. I see that, but I also see them thinking that Ziggler might get a face pop if Flair aligns with him (enough of a concern as is). Also, if Ziggler adds one more person to his entourage, he'll rival ECW-era Steve Corino.



AJ looks a little Asian, so I assume the next logical progression is cripple. :-k

Come on man.

Unless I missed some major incident with AJ, he's guilty of having an accent and some very questionable tattoos, nothing more.


AJ's homophobia and proselytizing Christianity are pretty well documented. As far as the former is concerned, I've seen him (as the babyface) refer to his opponent as a "$$$$$$" at a number of ROH shows. Shows I attended, mind.

I'm hearing a lot of rumors that William Moody, aka Paul Bearer, has passed away.

Oh, please.. please don't let this be true.

/edit: Confirmed by WWE.com.

RIP Percy Pringle III. Blew my mind that I didn't realize they were the same guy until he began talking normally during the initial Kane saga.

There's been a few deaths in the wrestling world that have actually made me sad. Owen Hart's was one - I met him less than a year prior to him passing away. Savage was another. But Paul Bearer..

as I have told a few people, I got into wrestling in the mid-90's. Managers were on their way out. Between WCW and WWF, I knew of only a handful - Sherri, General Lee, Hillbilly Jim, Sunny, Sable, Michael Hayes, Marlena, Paul Bearer, and Jimmy Hart. From age 8 or 9 and on, I was a pretty big Undertaker fan. I grew up with Undertaker and Paul Bearer. I marked harder for Paul Bearer's return at Wrestlemania 20 than I did Undertaker returning to the deadman gimmick.

A huge piece of my childhood has died. This is awful. Thoughts and prayers to the friends and family.

Had no idea that he had recently had a gastric bypass and had lost a lot of weight. Jerry Lawler tweeted this photo out tonight, said it was taken just ten days ago:

By that photo, you could never tell that Lawler is five years older than Bearer.

The Internet is too sad for me to continue on tonight. Bret Hart's tweet made me even sadder than I already was

@BretHart: Goodbye to a good friend, Paul Bearer. Say hi to Owen for me.

Wow.. just.. wow. I was having a great week and then I come home from Lakers/Thunder to read that Bearer has left us. The other day I was just watching some of the shoot he and Cornette did together, telling some really hilarious stories about Taker and Co.

RIP. :cry:

Indeed sad. Heartbreaking.

Thw internet is weird. Found out about this by Jeff Gerstmann retweeting Jerry Lawler.

He seemed like a really decent guy from the shoots I've seen and other people's comments about him.

Definitely one of the corniest/best wrestling names ever. And most fun to imitate. Back in middle school I won some dumb WWF hat at a house show for participating in a "Paul Bearer soundalike" contest that took place in the ring during intermission.

Memorial thread time.

He'd been working for NWA Hollywood as Percy Pringle again. Sad loss for the wrestling business indeed.

Damn, and he was looking a lot better weight wise, thought he was doing great. That's just sad.:(

His Paul Bearer character was always one of my favorites, he just sold the character so well.

Someone on Reddit said they should use Undertaker's unused theme during the tribute video for Paul Bearer. I agree.

That would put me in tears. After the tribute video plays, either Taker and/or Kane should walk out onto the stage and kneel or do whatever. No words necessary.

I hope he was right about the deadman gimmick, that he'll bring it out one last time before retirement.

Oh and this had me loling.
