JTG Offers Emotional Tribute To Cryme Tyme Tag Partner Shad Gaspard

0

Jayson Paul, better known by his ring name JTG, has posted an emotional tribute to his close friend and tag team partner Shad Gaspard on Instagram.

JTG and Shad were first put together as a team called the “Gang Stars” in Ohio Valley Wrestling, winning the OVW Southern Tag Team Championships twice. They arrived on WWE television in 2006, fully rebranded as Cryme Tyme.

I want to say thank you to all the friends, fans and family who reached out to me and Shads 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 us 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 in 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
