Speaking to TMZ via video, Triple H had nothing but great things to say about Shad Gaspard, echoing the sentiment of all his peers. Triple H said that they are preparing something that will air on Smackdown and Raw that will honor Shad although he did not say what it is.
“He was such a great guy. Shad’s one of those guys who everybody loved. Steph and I saw him maybe six months ago…we were at FOX for a meeting and he was coming out of the lobby and we were coming in the lobby and we stood there for 20 minutes talking,” Triple H said.
HHH praised Gaspard for finding success in all other things he was doing away from professional wrestling. “You know when the circumstances around all of this and his son, which thank God is okay, but you know…knowing that he said ‘Save my son’ and it was the last thing he did is all you need to know about the guy,” he added.
Triple H said that he was still holding out hope while the whole thing was going on “as illogical as it is” and then said his thoughts and prayers are with his wife, son, and family.
