. This week is an incredible one for me but has also brought me some horrible pain in the form of a sudden loss. . Just wanted to tell you to make that call to a loved one, don’t put it off…and TELL someone you love em and don’t think twice about it. . That’s all. Big love. ❤️
Al Wilson appeared in an angle between her daughter and Dawn Marie on SmackDown in the mid-aughts. It involved Al marrying Dawn in-storyline, setting up a confrontation between the two Divas at the 2003 Royal Rumble. It also involved Al’s on-screen character dying due to his relations with Dawn.
We at WrestleZone wish the best to Torrie Wilson and her family in this difficult time.
