PNT - A light to guide you by Shinjuchan PNT - A light to guide you by Shinjuchan
“A light to always guide you..."
Art from the Plots-n-Tombstones Mark Callaway (Calaway) Fanclub 1991-2010


Illustration from the Windowknocker’s Dark Testament of Paul Bearer and the ‘Widow’ who is the Undertaker and Kane’s mother in the story. Incidently, Widow’s character was portrayed/acted by the very real-life Paula ‘Black Widow’ Walker from WCWO Wrestling --unique since she also played this same role in the ring. I haven’t seen Paula in a while now and often wonder how she is these days.

PAUL BEARER AND THE LANTERNS

I have a rather extensive amount of drawings (my own and those from fans mailed into the office) depicting Paul Bearer holding various lanterns, candles, or some other lamp in the dark. All of these appear stem from Summerslam ‘94 when Paul stood in the center ring with a over-sized, illuminated urn giving the order to “Come, Spirit..”

Now I suppose you might wonder just how, or even why that meant so much to the people watching. Personally, I can’t honestly say myself, but I DO know what it came to symbolize. The lantern is the ‘promise to return’; the ‘guiding light’, which itself is all in turn related to all of us flicking our lighters each & every time the lights went out in the arena. Since Paul Bearer ‘guided’ Undertaker, protected and kept him, its easy to see how that made sense to a lot of fans.
