5 Things To Know About Missing WWE Star Shad Gaspard



A surprising and heartbreaking turn of events in the life of former WWE Pro Wrestler Shad Gaspard. The 6’7” 235 pound star has  seemingly vanished without a trace while swimming with his ten year old son in California’s newly reopened Venice Beach.

Nicknamed The Beast during his WWE days – Gaspard was best known for his Cryme Tyme days with partner JTG. But here are a few other things you may not have heard about this giant but gentle soul.

Lights, Camera, Shad!

Those WWE Wrestling cameras weren’t the only ones that loved Shad. He transitioned into acting in 2011 and appeared on TV shows including The Exes, Key and Peele and The Game. And in the blockbuster film Black Panther.

Shad actually could have ended up in a very different ring – the boxing ring. His father started training him to fight as well as study the martial arts when he was just five years old.

Bullet Proof

Would you point a gun at The Beast? One man did and got taken down by Shad. Gaspard once told TMZ that he was faced with a armed man at a gas station convenience store and rather than stand there and take it – he took the man down. Luckily it was just a bb gun.
