It's hard to believe as much but it has been 18 days since the death of former WWE manager and legendary pro wrestling personality Paul Bearer. He was just 58-years-old at the time of his passing and while he had been sick for a number of weeks beforehand, he was still taking bookings.
That's why there was so much wonder on what caused his untimely death.
According to a new report from TMZ, his son received the death certificate and it listed a heart attack as the official cause of death. The cause of the actual heart attack was a condition called supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), a treatable issue categorized as a "dangerously high heart rate."
Apparently, doctors believe the reports of Bearer's poor health in the weeks leading up to his death were because of SVT, aggravated by an upper respiratory infection. Had he gotten help sooner, the condition is treatable and they may have been able to save him but because symptoms mirror every day issues like anxiety or even heartburn, Bearer waited until just before his passing.
By then, it was too late.
We would like to say again, rest in peace to the late, great Paul Bearer. There will never be another like him.
