Paul Bearer Comments on His WWE Contract Status & More



- Paul Bearer has a new blog up on his website at http://percysposts.blogspot.com, talking about his future with WWE. Here are some highlights:

“One week ago today, we taped an episode of WWE SMACKDOWN that aired on The SyFy Network this past Friday, December 10th. That show really stirred up a lot of folks, especially those of you that have followed and supported me for so many years. To put things in proper perspective, if you didn’t read my BLOG on September 25th when I made my return to WWE, if you have the time I highly suggest that you go back and check it out before continuing here.”

You will see from the very beginning that I didn’t make it any secret that I never had any intentions of returning to the WWE, and that it took some “arm twisting” for me to make that decision. I didn’t think it was proper to discuss the length of my contract at that time, however now I feel a bit different, thinking that you should now realize that it was obviously a short term deal. I will also tell you that my WWE contract IS NOT completely over, in fact I have a couple of months remaining.

Considering my personal past, age, and other issues, I knew in my heart that I couldn’t take on a full time schedule that most of the roster, many less than half my age, were doing. My agreement with WWE was for television (SMACKDOWN and PPV) only. That is exactly why you never saw me at any live events (house shows). Unless you have walked in the shoes of a WWE talent working a full time schedule, it is impossible for you to understand what it takes to do that. I’ve been there, done it, have a t-shirt, and I know that I didn’t want to do it again plain and simple. These guys and girls out there on the road full time give up so much to entertain the masses.”

Bearer also noted that now that he’s not appearing on WWE TV every week, he will return to appearing at independent wrestling events, signings and conventions.
