• The Undertaker & Michelle McCool Comment On Shad Gaspard’s Death
While speaking to “Access” host Mario Lopez, The Undertaker and his wife, Michelle McCool, shared their thoughts on the tragic death of former WWE wrestler Shad Gaspard.
Below is what McCool said:
“He was one of the nicest guys. He was just one of those rare gems, that it doesn’t matter where he is or who he was with, he was always smiling. Everybody has something nice to say about him.”
The Undertaker continued:
“And that really… in this industry, it’s hard to find people like that. And he was such a… I mean, obviously he was genuine, a giant man, but a real… just a sweetheart of a man.”
“Which is clearly evident by his last act.”
Taker then said the following:
“When we talk about heroes and people that you look up to, just that last act of what he did, just… what a great father and human being that he was.
It’s just so sad and it’s just another example…this year has been so bizarre. COVID-19 and everything else that’s happened, and something like that, one minute you’re at the beach with your son, enjoying and having a great time, and then something catastrophic like that happens.
It just…you hate seeing bad things happen, but you really hate seeing bad things happen to really good people like that. It’s just really not fair, and I just…we pray for his family and hope that they will be able to deal with this and move on, and remember what a wonderful man he was.”
