JTG recently spoke with Chris Van Vliet and reflected on his friendship with Shad Gaspard. In the interview, JTG stated that he wants Gaspard to receive WWE’s Warrior Award. Here are some highlights, transcription credit of Chris Van Vliet.

On why Shad Gaspard should receive the Warrior Award:
JTG: “He definitely should. I don’t know what’s a bigger heroic act than putting his life on the line for his son. But honestly, he would have done it if it was another child. If it was me, he probably would have did the same exact thing.”
On how often he thinks about Shad:
JTG: “Every day. I’ve got a lot of photos in my room of Shad. I have so many photos of Shad in my phone. When I’m scrolling, I can’t get away from him. But it’s a good thing though.”
On how close he and Shad were:
JTG: “I don’t know if a lot of people know this but me and Shad were best friends. We were like brothers. We were pretty much like family. I spent a few Thanksgivings with him and his family. If I had an issue or financial problem or if I just had like personal problems, he was there for me. He was always there for me.”
