Paul Bearer Interview

In a new interview with Chris Yandek of, wrestling manager Paul Bearer/Percy Pringle speaks candidly about what hes been up to in his life and provides insight on many wrestling topics:

Percy says hes still under a WWE Legends contract and keeps his pulse on everything going on in the business:

People that dont know, that dont see me, I am still involved. Im still under contract with WWE. Im under a legends contract with WWE and I do things now and then with them like WrestleMania and go do signings, this, that and the other. Plus I work the independent organizations all around the country. I go out to L.A. once a month and do Championship Wrestling from Hollywood. We tape four weeks of TV once a month out there and some months Im busy every weekend doing wrestling stuff.

When discussing the state of wrestling managers in the business, he says he keeps in touch with WWEs Ricardo Rodriguez and gives him tips:

I think a hell of a lot of Ricardo Rodriguez who manages Alberto Del Rio. He has become a very good friend of mine and I give him tips all the time and not that he needs them. And when I see things that I like, I let him know that I liked it and hes very respectful and very, knows the history of our business and he deserves to be where hes at and other than Ricardo Rodriguez, there really isnt any managers, you know WWE doesnt have any managers. Bobby Heenan and Lou Albano and I could just go on and on and on, you know all the old school managers, there are none.

Giving his thoughts on Mick Foley being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, he shares a story that includes The Undertaker:

I love him dearly. I had so much fun managing him when he was Mankind cause we was going against The Undertaker. We just had so much fun because he wore that mask, you know that covered half of his long hair and that mask and all that and we were just like kids out there all the time and I was the only one that could ever make The Undertaker laugh and he could be laughing and nobody ever knew it and the same with Mick Foley.

He says he knows his day will come when Paul Bearer gets inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame:

I know that I will [be in the WWE Hall of Fame]. So thats all I need to know. Whether its next year or whether its five years from now, I know the times coming.
Good interview

Re: Paul Bearer Interview

I hope for his sake he's inducted with the Undertaker because he's in for a very long wait if he goes in alone.
