On there is Paul Bearer's last article. I knew he left because his wife was sick and was working as a road agent in recent years. I hoped that UT would come back as the Prince of Darkness one last time or Kane come out with Paul Bearer introducing him, I guess that won't be happening. I wonder will be end up in another fed?

Funny, I thought he left years ago. What was he writing about? I can't really see him breaking kayfab.

I missed Paul Bearer, as his last run was largely unmemorable. I mean, does anybody even remember the point where he left? I know I don't.

It's too bad he's leaving, because he was the perfect second for guys with gothic-type gimmicks like Kane and Mankind.

Paul Bearer did indeed leave a mark on this business. Without him, there would be no managers like Jim "Sinister Minister" Mitchell.

Paul Bearer ruled.

Too bad, I also would've wanted to see Paul and Taker reunite. Taker would return "Prince Of Darkness" gimmick with urn, etc.

I just wanted one night of UT or just have Paul introduce Kane when he came back. Intead of playing the Titantron video, I would have liked Paul Bearer come out and scream, "He's coming! He's coming back!" Like he did before Kane's initial debut.

Accoring to his column, his contract officially expires on Monday. One more cameo on Raw? Bischoff did mention an Inferno match being on the wheel. (Wishful thinking, I know...)

In a perfect world, he'd come out as Percival Pringle III and hit someone with a cane while wearing the most hideous jacket ever created.

The last time I remember seeing Bearer on tv, Austin was throwing him down a manhole. What a way to go.

I'll never forget Paul saying "I'm Paul Bearer, and you're not!" after he turned his back on Taker for Mankind in Summerslam '96. I used to always say "Thank god!" at the TV, knowing that UT would come for his ass later.

Paul Bearer was having dinner at a steakhouse in Mississippi where my sister works, and he was the most ignorant, rude bastard she had ever waited on. Ate a $27.00 steak and left a $1.25 tip. Cheap fat bastard!

Unfortunately, the thing that sticks out in my mind most about him is how thoughtful and well spoken he seemed in his thoughts about the passing of Yokozuna. That thought totally conflicts with the picture that StaggerLee is painting.

I always liked his on screen work, no matter how cheesy it may have been.

Another classic Paul Bearer moment was when Lawler kept asking him about something and Bearer ignored him, holding the urn.

Does anybody remember exactly when he stopped using all the chalky make-up? I liked the make up and was dissapointed when he stopped using it.

As an aside - no offense to your sister's restaurant, I know paying a lot is stylish and I'm sure it's a fine restaurant, but I'll never understand paying more than $13 for a barely cooked piece of cow's ass. Maybe I'm a hick, I don't know . . .

Edit: I changed "in vogue" to "stylish" cause I realized I'm too much of a hayseed to know whether it's "in vogue" "en vogue" or something else entirely. Eh.

I think the thing that I'm always going to remember was one of the few times that I was lucky enought to pull off Ringside seats to RAW. It was in Milwaukee (I believe about 1998, or so). Undertaker was doing in-ring work, and Bearer was outside the ring. Paul was sneaking a chair around the ring, and he had it behind his back. He looked over at our section and made the "shhhh" motion with his finger. Then he said, "Nobody will see the chair behind MY fat ass." My buddy who was sitting next to me, spoke up: "Dude, you could hide a truck behind that ass!" I thought that Bearer was going to bust out laughing right on the spot. He looked back over, and simply said, "Good point!" He gave use a little nod, and continued on his way. That's the one thing that I'm never going to forget about Bearer!
