Paul Bearer had a self-deprecating sense of humor.
On the latest episode of DDP Snake Pit (via AdFreeShows), Jake Roberts spoke about the career of The Undertaker. During the discussion with Jon Alba, Roberts agreed that Paul Bearer (Percy Pringle) was instrumental in helping establish The Undertaker during the first few years of his career in WWE.
Roberts then offered up a story about Paul Bearer that still makes him laugh to this day.
"At the time we were booked in upstate New York and we were staying at a hotel that had all of these honeymoon suites, and they gave all the guys the suites. The next morning I'm downstairs having breakfast and Percy comes up and he goes, 'Oh Jake, what a horrible night.' I'm like, 'What happened, bro?' He goes, 'The worst thing that could ever happen to a married man.' I go, 'Damn that's pretty serious. What, did you catch your wife cheating on you?' He says, 'No, she wasn't cheating on me. But Jake you've got to understand, there I was in that beautiful suite thinking about my lovely wife. Jake, I got in the hot tub, candles lit, drinking some champagne, then I got out of the hot tub and went over and laid on that big heart-shaped bed buck ass naked. That's when it happened, Jake.' I said, 'Well, what happened, Percy? What happened?' He says, 'I looked up and I saw the mirror on the ceiling and I thought to myself, 'Your wife is one sick b**ch if she would f**k you. She's demented! She's twisted!'," Roberts shared.
Paul Bearer was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2014, one year after he passed away.
