It's hard to find the words to convey the kind of feelings that's running through my mind in the hours since I've learned of Bill Moody's passing. And even as I type this entry, I find that there are no words that can properly convey those feelings and thoughts on an individual who I am only familiar with through his television performances...

And really, what can be said about a man who has not only had a long and distinguished career in the professional wrestling industry, but who has been an instrumental figure in contributing to the success and continually growing legend of WWE's most iconic figure. The Undertaker character would not have reached the mythical status it achieved without Paul Bearer's masterful talent to sell the gimmick and certainly no one else could have used that talent to bear fruit another long-term character in the form of Kane.

Whether he was known as Percy Pringle III or Paul Bearer or whatever, there's no question that Bill Moody had that natural charisma and ability to bring the talent he managed to a higher level. And it is a profound loss that he is no longer with us. He will be missed.

Godspeed, Bill, and thanks for the memories.
