– WWE’s website interviewed Michael Hayes on his reflections of Paul Bearer. Here is an excerpt:
“Percy and I go far, far, far, far, back. I think I first met him in ’77 when we were both in the business. I had met him before when we were both going to the wrestling matches. He lived in Mobile [Ala.]. I lived in Pensacola [Fla.]. The promotion was Gulf Coast Championship Wrestling. Lo and behold, I got in. I started putting up the ring, then I started to be the guy who did everything, from referee to being the jabroni who got beat to hell and back,; then went back, put a mask on and got beat up again. But I remember Percy telling me how mad and jealous he was when he’d go, ‘Hot dog, that guy used to stand here in the audience with us, and now he’s there! Why him? Why not me?!'”
