Paul Bearer -- the spooky WWE manager who helped introduce The Undertaker -- died Tuesday evening at the age of 58 ... this according to the WWE.

Bearer -- real name "Bill" Moody -- joined the WWE in 1990 ... playing the role of a creepy funeral director who managed various wrestling stars ... including Undertaker, Kane, Rick Rude, Vader and Mankind.

The details surrounding Bearer's death are unclear -- but he reportedly suffered from serious health problems over the past decade ... including morbid obesity and gallbladder issues.

R.I.P.

The WWE released a statement saying ... "WWE is saddened to learn of the passing of William Moody, aka Paul Bearer."

"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."

For all you disrespectful a**holes who got something negative or ignorant to say. Let me tell you William was not only a wrestler, he was a husband, a father, a pawpaw, a son, a brother, a nephew, and my uncle! So why don't you take all your negative energy and let his family and real friends mourn him in peace. To all of his true fans: thank you for the support and love.

I remember growing up being creeped out by paul bearer hating him, to this day one of my favorite moments in wrestling history was when kane and undertaker shoved him in the manhole. Still his death hits hard as a wrestling fan. I don't know what the wwf (it was better in those days so refuse to call it by its new name) would of been without him
