Shane McMahon explains how Vince came up with Undertaker’s gimmick:

“It actually came through interviewing Percy because Vince [McMahon] and Pat [Patterson] specifically were talking like, ‘well, give us something. We’re thinking about different characters. Like what have you done in the past?’ And Percy said he had done a couple of other things and he had done this and he mentioned he was a mortician and all of a sudden my dad just locked in on that. He said, ‘you were a mortician? That’s it! He’s The Undertaker. You are Paul Bearer.’ And it was born. That was it.”

    Think the headline is wrong on this. Sounds more like how they came up with the Paul Bearer gimmick. If this truely was the case why did Undertaker start in the WWF with Brother Love?
