The WWE announced on Raw last night that Paul Bearer is set to become the latest 2014 inductee to their Hall of Fame, Wrestlinginc.com reports.
Bearer - real name William Moody - sadly died of a heart attack last year but is set to be posthumously honoured by the company as the fourth person to enter the HoF this year alongside The Ultimate Warrior, Jake 'The Snake' Roberts and former Divas champion Lita.
The ceremony traditionally takes part as part of the WWE's annual Wrestlemania festivities, with the showpiece event of professional wrestling taking place this year on April 6 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
Bearer, who was 58 when he died, had a major stint in the WWE between 1990-2002 and also appeared somewhat sporadically after that.
As a manager, Bearer was most famed for performing alongside the legendary figure of 'The Undertaker', with the former's role as a slightly unhinged but excitable ghostly figure proving hugely entertaining during some of 'Taker's' most iconic storylines - including his notable feuds with kayfabe brother Kane.
