JTG, best friend and wrestling partner of the late Shad Gaspard has written a touching tribute to him.
Jason Anthony Paul, known in the wrestling circuit as JTG, has a lot of fond memories of himself and his deceased friend, and he mentioned a few of while recalling their time together.
The 35-year-old in-ring performer took to his Twitter handle to pay homage to Shad Gaspard in a lengthy post, thanking friends, fans and family who reached out to him and Shad’s family as they mourn the loss of their hero.
His post reads:
I want to say thank you to all the friends, fans and family who reached out to me and Shad’s family during this difficult time. The outpour of love and support has definitely helped me get through this.
I have my moments where I’m in disbelief and feeling a tremendous amount of hurt but as soon as I start to reminisce about Shad and our relationship I begin to smile.
I have tons of memories of Shad and I just chilling for no reason, and having a great time, enjoying each other’s energy, working out together, traveling the world together.
Laughing about inside jokes that nobody around knew about, doing edibles after a show, then binge eating at Red Lobster and our favorite roasting each other relentlessly.
The Relationship that I and Shad had comes along once on a lifetime. If you have a friend or a loved one that you’re close to, always try to make an effort to let them know how much you appreciate them. Tomorrow is never promised.
Shad and I always expressed how much we appreciated each other in each other’s lives and then follow it up with a good ole fashion roast….. just to balance things out.
Shad, thank you for always being there for me. You were more than my tag team partner, more than a friend. You were the big brother I always wanted growing up. The world will remember you for what you are. A HERO.”
