"I met Percy, as I called him for the duration of our relationship, while he worked in Dallas for WCCW and the Von Erich's in the wrestling office in Dallas and while managing a variety of villain wrestlers. Our mutual friend Dennis Brent introduced us as Percy also did some work with Dennis to help make ends meet. This was in the early 80's.

"We hit it off immediately as we both had the love of the business in common and we both were in the business in a non-wrestling role. Were we earning as much money as 'the boys?' Of course not but we were having fun because we were living out our boyhood dreams of being involved in the most unique of genres.

"Percy was one of the funniest guys that I ever met in the wrestling biz. He could make anyone laugh and enjoyed doing so. He was also a natural 'heel' and had the psychology of being a villain manager down to a science. Calling Paul Bearer a student of the game would be an understatement. "
