JTG wants Shad Gaspard to receive WWE Hall of Fame Warrior Award

Mar 19, 2022 - by James Walsh

JTG was recently interviewed by Muscle Man Malcolm, and the former Cryme Tyme member discussed a variety of topics, including wanting the late Shad Gaspard to receive the Warrior Award at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony and pushing to face Cody Rhodes during his TNT title reign in AEW. Here’s what he had to say:

JTG on wanting Shad Gaspard to receive the Warrior Award at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony: “It would definitely have to be the Warrior Award. You know, Shad did a heroic act, sacrificing his life for his son. But if it wasn’t his son, if it was somebody else out there, he would have probably done the same act. Shoot, if it was me, he would have probably done that for me. Shad has always had this hero mindset, years before that, he stopped a burglary at a gas station. Shad has always done something where he’s rescuing or saving somebody. I remember at a club, some guy was getting into his girl’s face and Shad put an end to that guy and threw the guy. ‘You don’t put no hand on no lady,’ cleaned that up real quick.”

On pushing to face Cody Rhodes during his TNT title reign in AEW: “Cody didn’t want no smoke with the God, he did not want no smoke with the God. He might have said my name, but if he really wanted to get in the ring with Jay The God, that match would have happened. Looks like he’s still running. What’s good, Cody? I didn’t forget you, I did not forget you at all. We don’t need no TNT Championship, just me and you, baby.”

    Yeah he definitely deserves that warrior. No argument here.

    I agree with JTG. Shad should be honored by the WWE as a true hero.

    I’ve been saying since then that he needs either the Warrior Award or an actual HOF induction… unfortunately, and I hate to say this because i feel awful, as soon as WWE gets wind of a dying kid, which is sad in and of itself, they have their Warrior Award recipient right there. That, or “random camera guy from Smackdown third week of November2012 taping that no one’s heard of.”

    I also think Jim Johnston needs an award, but that’s a story for another day.
