WWE posted a moving tribute video on its official YouTube channel where current WWE Superstars remembered the late Shad Gaspard. The former WWE Superstar passed away on May 17th after being swept away from the shore by a riptide at Venice Beach where he was swimming with his 10-year-old son.
Shad Gaspard reportedly asked the lifeguards to save his son, which they did, before the tide washed him away. A day after the search was suspended, Shad Gaspard's body was found after it had washed ashore on May 20th.
After the news broke, tributes poured in from all corners of the world from WWE Superstars, past and present, remembering not only the wrestler but also the father in Shad Gaspard.
