The WWE chairman Vince McMahon has also come forward and on behalf of the company, he said that that the thoughts of everyone at WWE are with Gaspard’s family:

“WWE’s thoughts are with the family of Shad Gaspard. Please continue to keep them in your thoughts during this difficult time.”

Shad Gaspard went missing after getting caught in a riptide at Venice Beach in California on Sunday. The lifeguards had reached out to him for help but he asked the rescuers to help his 10-year-old son first.

The former WWE star was unfortunately crushed by a large wave before the guards could reach back to him and this was the last time he was seen.

The search operations ran through Sunday and Monday but the US Coast Guard have confirmed that they have suspended the operations now.

Shad’s family has issued a statement on the matter expressing their gratitude towards the first responders and hoping for the former WWE star’s safe return.
