Al Wilson, the father of Torrie Wilson, passes away

On the night that his daughter Torrie is getting inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, WWE announced that Al Wilson has passed away two days ago.

“WWE is saddened to learn that Al Wilson has passed away. The father of WWE Hall of Famer Torrie Wilson, Al appeared on SmackDown in 2002 through ’03 and took part in many memorable segments that endeared him to the WWE Universe,” a statement from WWE read.

Al was in a storyline with Dawn Marie, who Torrie feuded with in 2002. Al got “engaged” to Dawn Marie and the pair got “married” on the first episode of Smackdown in 2003 in their underwear. In the storyline, a week later, Al “died” from a heart attack after having sex numerous times on their honeymoon.

Wilson is slated to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in a few hours.

We extend our condolences to Torrie and her family.
