Shad Gaspard’s unfortunate and untimely passing has shocked the wrestling world, but plenty of other celebrities have come forward to celebrate the life of the former WWE superstar. One of those celebrities is Arnold Schwarzenegger, who took to social media to talk about Gaspard.
In an Instagram post, Schwarzenegger took a photo of himself on a bicycle in front of a large memorial wreathe for Gaspard. In the post, Schwarzenegger called Gaspard a “positive force in the gym and the world,” and called him a hero in not only bodybuilding and wrestling, but became an “ultimate hero” when he decided to save his son over himself when the pair were trapped in a riptide current. Clearly, his sacrifice has had an effect on the world at large, and it’s good to see people like Schwarzenegger taking the time to make sure everyone remembers the hero that Gaspard was.
