The National Wrestling Alliance is devastated to learn of the passing of Joseph Hudson, better known to fans as Jocephus and the Question Mark.
Joseph has been a pillar of the NWA for many years, whether it be as the enigmatic leader of the Kingdom of Jocephus or the beloved Master of Mongrovian Karate.
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 of 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.
– NWA President William Patrick Corgan
Joseph will be remembered for his warm personality and imaginative spirit. We extend our deepest sympathies to Joseph’s family, friends, and fans.
A number of wrestling personalities throughout different promotions also took some time to pay tribute to their friend, issuing the following remarks:
Shocked to hear of the passing of Joseph Hudson and I send my condolences to his son and entire family. Joseph was an incredibly talented man in front of the camera as well as behind it. I’m honored I had the chance to work with him and will never forget the laughs we shared❤️🙏🏼 https://t.co/RHfZZum4DH

The world is a better place because you were in it. Life is kind of like wrestling. It’s the “moments” that count. We shared them in and out of the ring. I love you brother. 🥋❓🤘🏼💔 pic.twitter.com/6HxrkS4BVf

Thinking about the talks I’ve shared w/Jocephus aka “The Question Mark” over our short period of time working together @nwa I always found him to be upbeat, positive, gentle & oddly funny. Really gonna miss him & his smile. Prayers to his family~PHS#RIPQuestionMark #NWAPowerrr pic.twitter.com/wNv9bfv8Nv

Very sad to hear about the passing of Jocephus. I met him years ago before we worked together at NWA and he always had a smile on his face and was always so fun to be around. My condolences to his family, especially his little boy. He will be forever remembered. Ka-Ra-Tay?????

Such horrible news to share. Jocephus Hudson has passed. Moments ago @NWA President William Patrick Corgan issued a statement on his IG. Joe was so creative and a hell of a guy. Most of you know him as @QuestiontheTHE. My condolences to his family, friends and fans. #RIP pic.twitter.com/1hnVUq4vZy

This will hurt for a long time. The hard thing about wrestling Jocephus was trying not to laugh at the silly stuff he would do to try & pop you during the match. He will be missed . Little unknown fact: He helped me with voice/writing material for the DCC videos #Ripjocephus 🙏 ? pic.twitter.com/5elFXNOnNB
