Roman Reigns has dominated the WWE for years inside the ropes but a video has resurfaced to show that the ‘The Tribal Chief’ is also a man of many talents outside of the square circle too.
WWE clip shows Roman Reigns hilariously impersonating Paul Bearer
For decades WWE Superstars have provided memorable moments on the microphone that will be remembered forever. Some of those moments become catchphrases that are known and impersonated around the world.
One such WWE personality who has been impersonated over the years is The Undertaker’s former manager and WWE Hall Of Fame member Paul Bearer.
The real life licensed mortician originally managed for a number of years in the territories across the USA, managing the likes of ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, ‘Ravishing’ Rick Rude and The Ultimate Warrior early in their careers under his persona of Percy Pringle.
It wasn’t until he joined the WWE that he became a popular figure around the globe. Making his debut in February 1991, he took over managerial duties of The Undertaker from Brother Love and was an instant hit. WIth his high pitched voice and spooky demeanour he provided the perfect foil to the menacing Deadman and would soon have his own talk show segment, The Funeral Parlour.
It was during this early period that his famous catchphrase “Ooooh yes” became a regular part of WWE programming. Bearer would continue to use the phrase throughout his WWE tenure and delighted fans at WrestleMania XX when his vocal sounded across the arena before The Undertaker made a triumphant return in the Deadman character to take on Bearer’s ‘son’ Kane.

Such a memorable catchphrase has spawned thousands of impressions over the years and footage has recently been unearthed of the current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns providing a pretty spot on impression.
Clearly Reigns has a talent for taking off former WWE Superstars as only last Friday night on SmackDown he would impersonate ‘The American Dream’ Dusty Rhodes, the late Father of his WrestleMania 39 opponent Cody Rhodes.
