Shelton Benjamin has dedicated his Raw Tag Team Championship victory to his friend, the late Shad Gaspard.
The Hurt Business beat The New Day to win the titles at Sunday’s WWE TLC pay-per-view event from Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida on the WWE Network. The finish saw Cedric Alexander hit Kofi Kingston with a Lumbar Check to get the pinfall victory.
Benjamin took to Instagram where he wrote in the caption, “This ones for you Shad.”
He included a few photos in the post including an old picture of himself and Gaspard along with a picture of the title next to his wristband which reads “4 S.G” [For Shad Gaspard]. He also took photos with Aryeh, the 10-year-old son of Gaspard.
Shad passed away at the age of 39 earlier this year during a tragic incident at Venice Beach while with his son. Gaspard insisted on lifeguards taking his son before him and he was taken away by the water.
