Former number one contenders for the WWE tag team championship, Cryme Tyme’s JTG and Shad are interested in returning to the WWE. That is according to one-half of the tag team, Shad Gaspard, who has been dabbling in acting during his time away from professional wrestling.
The duo previously had two stints in the company, and didn’t leave on the best of terms with the company officials. Shad expressed his interest in working with WWE again while talking to TMZ, but said it was up to Triple H and the company officials to make it work. Here’s the video:
The duo performed in WWE’s erstwhile developmental territory, Ohio Valley Wrestling as the Gang Stars, before being promoted to the main roster as Cryme Tyme, in 2006. Their stint ended in 2007, but they would return in 2008 for their second and most memorable run, forming a stable with then up-and-comer John Cena and even challenging for the tag titles.
Shad Gaspard was released from his contract in late 2010 while JTG continued to perform in the WWE till his release in 2014. The thought of them returning to the WWE is appealing, what with the closest version of them, the Primetime Players’ seeming disbandment with Titus O’Neil’s rumoured singles push. But one can’t help but wonder where their ‘thugs from the hood’ gimmick will fit in this ulta-PG program.
