Moody made his WWE debut in 1991 as the manager of The Undertaker and went on to become a memorable part of WWE over the course of the next 20 years. Our deepest condolences go out to Moody’s family, friends and fans.


Moody played the role of a funeral director, managing WWE stars like Kane, The Undertaker and Mankind. His pale faced character was known for carrying an urn and speaking in a high pitched creepy voice.
