Standing at 6ft 3 inches and weighing 285 pounds, The Question Mark was an imposing presence. The man from Nashville, Tennessee, faced the likes of Jeff Jarrett, Trevor Murdoch, Colt Cabana, and a plethora of veterans from the industry.

Jocephus also starred in many matches for Resistance Pro Wrestling or RPW. This is not to be confused with RevPro, which is a British wrestling promotion, with Will Ospreay as their champion.

At RPW, Jocephus held the RPW Heavyweight Championship just once, but his reigns crossed a year.

Along the way, he beat the likes of Suge D, more popularly known as AEW’s Pineapple Pete, WWE and ECW legend Justin Credible, and the man he beat for the title, Robert Anthony. He even held the RPW Tag Team Championships with Robert Anthony and his wife Eve, also known as Abriella of Amazonia.

He appeared just once in TNA under the name Beauregard. Over there, he wrestled Chris Melendez, a former US Army Veteran.

In 2018, Jocephus had his first big match in NWA against Tim Storm in an Empty Arena match. In 2019, he debuted the Question Mark gimmick. He and Aron Stevens formed a team in December 2019 and registered their first win against Homicide and Eddie Kingston.

His last appearance came at an NWA Powerrr taping, where he and Stevens lost to the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express.
