• Wrestling World Reacts To The Shad Gaspard Situation
Former WWE wrestler Shad Gaspard (of the tag team Cryme Tyme) and his son were part of a group of people at the Marina Del Rey beach who were caught in a strong rip tide yesterday around 4pm.
Lifeguards rushed to help the people, and Gaspard instructed them to help his son first.
While his son was successfully rescued, Gaspard was crashed down by a larger wave which may have submerged him under water.
After searching him for two days, the US Coast Guard has called off the search for Gaspard.
Many people are saying that he is presumed to be dead, unless some miracle happens.
Below is how the wrestling world reacted to this sad situation:
This news about Shad Gaspard is just heartbreaking …… 🙏
