Mixed Martial Artist?Edit

"the physically imposing Gaspard became a successful No Holds Barred fighter (his record was 35-7"

No...First of all there is no NHB fighting anymore, its called MMA. Second, FCFighter nor Sherdog have a listing for a Shad Gaspard. Where is your source for this because i'm gonna tag it otherwise... 16:47, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

No Holds Barred and Mixed Martial Artist are two different things. NHB has fewer rules; you can head butt, use elbows, throw kicks with shoes on, and more. MMA is sport than a fight. Every real fighter know NHB is more of a street fight and MMA is more of a sport fight like boxing —Preceding unsigned comment added by Haleymay (talkcontribs) 15:00, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Hard to be "following in the footsteps" if Batista hasn't debuted anywhere. The entire line seems unnecessary if he has stated he has no intention to go into MMA. Desirsar (talk) 05:50, 25 July 2011 (UTC)


How can he reside in 4 cities? Somebody needs to check which one he really resides in and remove the others. TJ Spyke 03:12, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

According to his MySpace he lives in all four.«»bd(talk stalk) 15:11, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Louisville, Kentucky is where OVW is based, he will have only resided there while he was in OVW i guess

Shad said in a Q&A on his myspace, that he own real-estate in Brooklyn, ny, Atlanta, ga, Miami, fl, Louisville, ky, and Houston, tx. Lots of people do this, buy condos/ Houses and rent them out so some one ells pays for there property while they still own it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:36, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

""Shad" is not a separate ring name"Edit

Says who? That's all he was ever called while on Raw. Tromboneguy0186 (talk) 02:23, 24 November 2007 (UTC)


On Shads myspace and in an interview on wwe .com he calls his finishing move THUGNIFICENCE. It’s just a modified big mans STO. It’s spelled different than the character name on the Boondocks, so it must have no connection, and just be plain street slang. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:05, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Long NameEdit

Why was his long name deleted? Shad Chad Javier Jesus Roman Chittick Gaspard, I think. Thats his name, as in WWE Magazine and his myspace.

Oh, also, his new finisher is called Thugnificent.

  Done The name was deleted due to vandalism. I have restored it. ♥NiciVampireHeart♥ 19:18, 10 September 2008 (UTC)
Someone needs to use Capital Letters when writing his full name because it is coming up as vandalism on STIki. Geraldshields11 (talk) 01:51, 18 August 2012 (UTC)


When has he ever used a back suplex side slam as a finisher? The closest thing he used to that was a backdrop driver and that was only during his days in OVW. Also, his STO finisher is called Thugnificance (a portamanteau of thug and significance), not Thugnificent, according to his MySpace like the guy above mentioned. PCE (Talk)

His profile states that his finisher (STO) is called The Recoil. I added a reference, you can see it from there.--Pavlen (talk) 19:16, 7 March 2009 (UTC)


Shad tag teamed with Bobby Lashly at IGF show on 2/5/11

He allso con firmed on his twitter that he is now signed with IGF

Myspace sourceEdit

The Myspace source on this page should probably be replaced since the page is set to private. Some of the information may be on his official website. Thought I would state this before trying and changing anything. (MgTurtle (talk) 21:34, 12 March 2011 (UTC))

G.I. Joe: Retaliation?Edit

Did Gaspar's scene get cut from G.I. Joe: Retaliation? I did not see "Shad Gaspar" (or something similar) on IMDB's full cast list but have not seen the movie.

I cannot edit the article but I noticed a mistakeEdit

It says he went missing on the 18th of May, when in fact it was the 17th of May Mwlit (talk) 03:07, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

  Done JTP (talkcontribs) 03:55, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

Please remember this is a BLPEdit

And as such requires reliable sources, TMZ and Forbes contributor pieces are not reliable sources, especially for controversial information. Additionally, we do not generally put "missing" dates in the lead of people who are otherwise notable for their career and not being a missing persons. Praxidicae (talk) 11:27, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

Also the legal section needs to go entirely, it's sourced exclusively to TMZ with a Bleacherreport rehash of TMZ. The charges were dropped, this is the equivalent of "he got a speeding ticket!" and is utterly mundane fancruft that has no reliable sourcing because it was not reported by reliable sources. Praxidicae (talk) 12:08, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
And this In 2011, Gaspard performed in a Modern William Shakespeare performance in Tampa, Florida, where he performed a modern take on Hamlet Act 3 Scene 1 "To be, or not to be", as well as other Shakespearean works.[46] is straight up cruft too. It shouldn't be in the article and has no independent sources. We don't need to know every thing this person has ever done in their life. Praxidicae (talk) 12:09, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
And this needs to be removed as it is unsourced: In 2011, and 2012, Gaspard's graphic novel Assassin & Son won several awards for best original independent graphic novel. Gaspard came up with the original concept/premise and wrote the screenplay along with former WWE wrestler Muhammad Hassan. The series is said to be a modern version of Kazuo Koike Lone Wolf and Cub. Praxidicae (talk) 12:11, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
OK then, if the other sources were reporting based on a TMZ report then you have a point with the BLP issue, then the article can stay as it was for now. Oswah have rollback the article back to your revision already, removing all the potential BLP issues. Also I will help removing some of the other issues you have mentioned.

Shad presumed dead.Edit

Search called off for Shad with him being presumed dead. - 2A02:C7F:C283:C100:859:B2E9:361E:DA99 (talk) 12:48, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

That is not a reliable source. We don't report deaths unless they are confirmed. Praxidicae (talk) 12:52, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
Right. I'm sure he's out in the ocean walking on the water. 2601:14F:8006:4170:998A:C5CE:6D2D:E635 (talk) 21:51, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

To say be is dead would be misinformation. Even if the odds of his survival are low, nothing is confirmed. Mwlit (talk) 21:53, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

In my opinion this page needs closedEdit

There are many people who are undoing each others edits and not seeing eye to eye, leading to misinformation Mwlit (talk) 00:15, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

Retirement year in wrestlingEdit

What should his retirement year in wrestling be? MikaelaArsenault (talk) 14:46, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

  • None. He died still active. He never formally retired. DrewieStewie (talk) 17:37, 20 May 2020 (UTC)


Some one is changing Shad Gaspard Wikipedia videogame section of the page, he was really on WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2008, WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2009, WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2010, WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2011, not WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2006, I know his page is being heavily edited and the person passed away, this user needs to stop. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rac2k41 (talkcontribs) 05:12, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
