We are starting to receive more details regarding the death of William Moody, aka Paul Bearer, who passed away Tuesday, March 5th at the age of 58.
A source who was with Moody at the Gulf Coast Wrestler's Reunion this past weekend in Mobile, Alabama, told me that Moody was saying that he had caught an upper respiratory infection in Chicago the week before. WrestlingINC.com reader Geno Velasco passed along the video above of Moody's appearance in Chicago, who speaks at the 1:15 mark. He was under a doctor's care and on medication for the infection. He attended the reunion in a wheel chair because he was weak.
TMZ posted a story about Moody's passing, and noted that while the cause of his death is unclear, "he reportedly suffered from serious health problems over the past decade ... including morbid obesity and gallbladder issues."
You can see photos of Moody from last weekend's event in Mobile below:
