Hundreds of fans and wrestlers gathered on Friday for the beach memorial in honor of Shad Gaspard.
The former WWE superstar disappeared while swimming in Venice Beach on Sunday and his tragic death at the age of 39 was confirmed on Wednesday after his body was found and identified.
On Friday, friends and fans pay tribute for the final wrestler with a flower warning bearing his name when someone else puts flowers and a bouquet of flowers.
Former CryT Tyme JTG tag teammates were among those present, such as Taya Valkyerie and her husband John Morrison from IMPACT Wrestling.
Kofi Kingston, Shelton Benjamin, Dolph Ziggler and many more are to pay their respects.
Taya writes: ‘This week is very difficult. Tonight we have come together to remember you @ Shadbeast
‘You are there with us, smiling at everyone who loves you. You influence a lot and tonight is proof of your strength in life and beyond ‘
Joey Ryan also shared photos from the memorial, which showed a large crowd gathering to honor Gaspard.
He tweeted: “A beautiful night to celebrate the life and legacy of our dear friend, @Shadbeast.”
TMZ previously revealed the star bravely told the coast guard to focus on bringing his 10-year-old son safely to the beach, but when they returned, Gaspard was no longer found.
A search team spent two days looking for it in rough water, before calling time for their efforts.
WWE paid tribute to Gaspard at NXT and Smackdown this week, while his superstar colleagues have been brought to social media to honor his legacy.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is among those who pay their respects.
“This one hurts,” he wrote. Guy Great guy. My condolences and deepest love for Shad Gaspard’s wife, son and family.
Ad Shad sank in the sea, but not before instructing the coast guard to save his 10-year-old son first. That is a father’s love. ‘This is difficult to process. Love and light for the Shad family. And your knight spirit lives on through your son. “
