Gaspard was swimming with his son and they were swimming together when a wave of wind drew them hundreds of meters from the shore. A rescue team jumped in to help but because of the waves they could only help one by one, and that’s when Gaspard asked them to save his son first. The team rescued his son but before they could return to help Gaspard, he was overwhelmed by another wave. He was later found but already tragically passed away.

After several years with WWE, he continued to wrestle on the independent circuit while also appearing in films such as Get Hard, Brothers, and Birds of Prey.
