WWE: Paul Bearer’s Official Cause of Death Released

TMZ.com is reporting that, via the official death certificate received by his son, Paul Bearer (William Moody) died as the result of a heart attack, stemming from a “dangerously high heart rate”. Apparently, Bearer had a heart condition called supra-ventricular tachycardia or SVT, which is a common, treatable condition. In the last few weeks of his life, Bearer was still making public appearances and was visibly suffering from shortness of breath and he also had a hard time speaking. The issue with SVT is that the symptoms are so similar to those of anxiety and heartburn that sufferers often dismiss anything being wrong and do not go to a doctor to get it checked out. Earlier this month, Bearer would check himself into a local medical facility, but, at that point, Bearer’s health had already deteriorated past the point of being able to save him and he passed away in the hospital on March 5 at the age of 58.

In regards to the recent on-air angle involving CM Punk, The Undertaker, and the symbolic urn that was a ‘prop’ of sorts for Paul Bearer for several years, Bearer’s family apparently gave the ‘go-ahead’ for WWE to proceed with the angle. WWE had Bearer’s two sons flown in on the first night of the angle a couple of weeks ago on RAW to pitch the angle to them and get their blessing on proceeding with the angle. Bearer’s sons agreed and, when talking to TMZ.com, commented, “We felt that Dad would have wanted us at RAW last week and agreed to the angle. We knew that Dad wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.”
