Torrie Wilson, who is being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame tonight, is dealing with the death of her father, Al Wilson.
Al died earlier this week, Pro Wrestling Sheet has confirmed.
Torrie did an Instagram post on Friday mentioning that someone close to her passed away this week.
“This week is an incredible one for me but has also brought me some horrible pain in the form of a sudden loss,” Torrie wrote.
“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.”

WWE fans will remember Al from a late 2002/early 2003 storyline where he married Torrie’s rival, Dawn Marie.
Dawn Marie fell for Al in October 2002. Despite being half his age, Dawn Marie engaged in a passionate relationship with Mr. Wilson. And after just weeks together, the two lovebirds agreed to marry.
Dressed in nothing but their underwear, the couple got married on the January 2, 2003 edition of SmackDown!. The wedding was one of the last times WWE fans saw Al alive as Dawn Marie proved to be too much woman for him. One week later, Al died from a heart attack after having rigorous sex numerous times in succession on their honeymoon.
At his wake, which aired the following week on SmackDown, Dawn Marie blamed Torrie for Al’s death. Dawn Marie said Al died of a broken heart before slapping Torrie. They brawled and knocked over a casket containing Al. The following Sunday at the 2003 Royal Rumble, Wilson beat Dawn Marie in a Stepmother vs. Stepdaughter match to end the feud.
