If you’re on Twitter and a wrestling fan, you need to be following @SethMates. His tweets border on constant spoiler alerts as he used to work for WWE Creative and know how their process works.
Earlier today, he tweeted the following:
Legit question: should wwe use paul bearer’s death as part of the punk-taker storyline, a la mocking lawler’s heart attack?

My first thought was: NO WAY. But, after thinking about it for a little bit, wouldn’t this be a perfect way to add even a little more icing on the CM Punk vs. Undertaker cake?
In situations like this, I think it would come down to his family’s permission and what his closest friends say. If they think the late William Moody would be OK with it, as a lot of old school guys would do anything for the business, then I say go with it. If they think it is in poor taste, then there is no reason to include him in an already awesome feud. As long as they aren’t mocking the death itself somehow, I think they would be in the clear.
Maybe it’s different, but hell, Big Bossman drove around dragging Big Show’s freaking Dad behind him. What do you think? Would this be too much, too soon? Or, would it make the Undertaker’s possibly final match even more special?
