Most definitely. As a huge Undertaker fan, even I have to admit that I don't know how far he would have gotten had it not been for Paul Bearer. He and Kane both benefited hugely from William's contributions to the storyline between the feuding siblings from '97 all the way to their recent clash a couple of years back. I will surely miss that man.
RIP Paul Bearer, thank you for all the memorable moments you were a part of as I grew up watching wrestling. I remember at the age of 10 when you first debuted with the Undertaker, I used to always try and imitate your voice.. It warms my heart though to hear all the good comments from wrestlers all over since you passed, it shows the character you really had and how genuine of a human being you were.. Rest in Love..
