Joe Franciosi, who was a former WWE Creative team writer, passed away last night due to a heart attack. Joe was in the creative team back in 2010 and did a segment with Ted DiBiase where he took out a fake eye.
He was also responsible for William Shatner performing his own version of WWE theme songs. He recently worked for Championship Wrestling from Hollywood.
Here’s what Samoa Joe had to say about his death:
Rest in Peace Joe Franciosi. I love you brother, see you on the other side…
