I missed the passing of Paul Bearer last week, Bill Moody was one of the great gimmick managers of my day. In discussing the loss on his morning show, the Czabe asked where Paul Bearer ranks in the annals of wrestling valets/managers. My guess is that he’s solidly second tier. Not quite in the first rank, with Bobby Heenan, Freddie Blassie, and Jim Cornette. But in the class just behind them.
