NWA President Billy Corgan has announced the unfortunate passing of Joseph Hudson, known to fans as both Jocephus and The Question Mark.
Corgan confirmed Hudson’s passing on his Instagram page, releasing this statement:
“It’s with a heavy heart that I share that my friend and brother in wrestling, Joseph Hudson, has passed away suddenly from an as-yet undiagnosed medical issue. NWA fans would know him as Jocephus as well as The Question Mark; where thanks to the great fans at GPB Studios in Atlanta, Joseph was able to receive the kind support in the ring he’d always dreamt of. He is survived by a young son whom he loved dearly, and if anything would pain him about leaving this earth it would be not being able to be there for his boy. RIP Joseph, love to you and Godspeed.”
Hudson is best known for his run shortly after Corgan acquired NWA in 2017. He feuded with the NWA Heavyweight Champion on numerous occasions, proving himself to be a formidable competitor.
Before NWA shut down production due to the pandemic, he had changed his persona to The Question Mark, aligning himself with Aron Stevens (fka Damien Sandow).
Stevens took to Twitter to express his condolences, writing:
“My heart is broken. R.I.P. Sensei, ?. Thank you for all you have done for the fans and for me. This does not seem real.”
Stu Bennett (WWE’s Wade Barrett) replied to Stevens’ tweet, expressing his sadness, tweeting:
“You two were a brilliant duo. Incredibly sad – he was a great guy & performer. RIP Joseph.”
