Another pro-wrestler, Taya Valkyrie, also posted photos from the tribute, saying, “This week has been extremely hard. Tonight we came together to remember you @Shadbeast. You were there with us, smiling down on everyone that loves you. You impacted so many and tonight was proof of your power in life and beyond.”

Another friend added, “No filter from tonight’s memorial. Beautiful evening to celebrate our friend."

As we reported, Gaspard died after being caught in a rip-tide in the ocean while swimming with his son. Many witnesses say the former WWE star told lifeguards to save his son before trying to keep him above the water. His son was rescued by lifeguards and survived the incident.

"He Was Our Heart, Our Soul, Our Protector, Our Warrior"


At the time, his wife and son spent hours on the beach hoping to get any sign that Gaspard may have survived the incident.

She dedicated a post to her husband on Instagram calling him a 'real-life superhero.'

“He was our heart, our soul, our protector, our warrior. He was a bright force of nature, who brought joy to many through his joyous and gracious nature. The outpouring of love from Shad’s friends, colleagues, and fans has meant more to us than you can even imagine. We’d like to once again thank the lifeguards, coast guard, divers, fire and police departments for efforts.”
