The search for Shad Gaspard has been called off, and he is presumed dead.

My sincerest condolences to his family and friends.

The body of Gaspard has been found as it washed up on a beach in Venice.

A very sad story, but at least the family has some closure.

Very sorry to hear this. Wrestling social media has been full of people I never would have guessed posting pictures with Shad - a very nice tribute.

This story from 2016 has also been posted a lot.

The last thing he did in this life was direct lifeguards to rescue his son.

Now there is a father.

Another untimely death in the wrestling world - Hana Kimura, who worked ROH's MSG show last year and was part of the first-ever women's match at Wrestle Kingdom this year, is dead at 22 of an apparent suicide.

I know her mother from a chatroom we both visit and she was always very proud of her daughter, so I can't imagine how much this is hurting her. It's a shame that she went out so early before she had a chance to show the world what she was made of.

So apparently Samoa Joe is permanently replacing King on commentary?

Is this because he's injured? Or too injured to wrestle anymore? I can't imagine he's willingly doing this, but what do I know

Joe's had several concussions, I think the last two back-to-back. He might be having a hard time getting cleared.

Rumor is that Dominic Djijakovic is getting called up. He's got the right look and great athleticism, but his promos make Ricochet sound like Dusty Rose. How long before he is simply called "Dom" officially?

Nah, it'd just be Djijakovic

Joe knows the business. He doesn't get in his own way with diva ego.
