R.I.P. Paul Bearer, 1954-2013: The Definitive Video Anthology of His WWE Career
2. The Undertaker and Paul Bearer Attempt to Embalm Steve Austin on Live Television, November 1998
As if a character whose name is synonymous with death itself wasn't dark enough, the 1998 iteration of the Undertaker was pitch-goddamn-black, perhaps best embodied by this sequence where he and Paul Bearer kidnapped the ever-popular "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and attempted to embalm him alive on national television. So if you're scoring at home, within a scant few months, the Undertaker openly admitted to arson and murder and came within seconds of stabbing a man dead in front of millions of television viewers. And yet, amazingly, the cops never came and got him! Go figure.
1. Paul Bearer Gets Buried in Wet Cement, June 2004
When you consider that he was able to survive this cement bath in 2004, the last nine years had to feel like house money to Paul Bearer anyway!
Thanks for the memories, Paul! And I mean this in the most sincere possible way...
