Moody was a perfect fit as a macabre mortician. When he joined the WWE, he ditched the blond hair and Percy Pringle name he forged in the 1980s for jet black locks complete with powdered white face. In the act, Paul Bearer’s urn had some unexplained power that protected the Undertaker, allowing his protege to escape unscathed from every leg drop and big boot to the face. Paul Bearer also hosted the WWE segment, “The Funeral Parlor.”

Moody, an Alabama native, told the pro wrestling website PWTorch.com last year that had a degree in mortuary science. He said he was a licensed funeral director and embalmer. He was called to WWE chairman Vince McMahon’s office about taking the job as Undertaker’s manager without the company knowing his true background.

“It was one those had-to-be-there moments when Vince realized I was the real thing, the real deal,” Moody told the website. “I was the real Undertaker.”

He does kind of look like Jack Black in Bernie.
