• WWE To Pay Tribute To Shad Gaspard On Tonight’s SmackDown, Triple H Comments On Shad’s Death

Former WWE wrestler Shad Gaspard tragically passed away at the age of 39 after being submerged by a strong wave at the Marina Del Rey beach.

While speaking to TMZ, 14 time World Champion Triple H revealed that WWE is planning something for the former Cryme Tyme member on this week’s SmackDown.

Below is what The Game said:

“This was all happening in real-time. Wednesday night, we put something at the beginning of the show. I’m sure we’ll be doing something on SmackDown. He was such a great guy.

Steph and I saw him maybe 6 months ago. We were at FOX for a meeting. He was coming out of the lobby, we were coming into the lobby. We probably stood there for 20 minutes talking. Just the greatest guy. Finding success in all these other things.

He was doing Hollywood and everything else. With the circumstances around all of this, his son, thank God he’s okay. Knowing that he said ‘save my son’ and that was the last thing he did, that’s all you need to know about the guy.”
