We are very sad to learn about the passing of Jocephus, real name Joseph Hudson. He was also known as The Question Mark in the NWA.

The reasons for Jocephus’ passing are not clear at this time. It is said that he passed away due to an undiagnosed medical issue according to a statement from NWA President Billy Corgan.

Corgan confirmed Jocephus’ passing via his Instagram page.

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.


Jocephus was with the NWA for over a decade. He is a former NWA Southern Heavyweight Champion. Our thoughts are with his family and friends during this time.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
