Former WWE Superstar Lance Cade died, according to PWInsider.

http://www.pwinsider.com/ViewArticle.php?id=49933

Sketchy on details, but he was 29 and given his release from WWE, rehiring and subsequent second release, take a guess of the cause.

They'd be stupid to try and use this against her. It's so easily shot down in terms of pinning it on WWE.

Wow, this is probably the first death I have learned about through trending topics on Twitter.

Very sad to hear - one of the newer guys that I enjoyed. Still, it's harder and harder to be shocked by another premature death in wrestling.

Surprisingly, WWE is up front about this one - I figured they'd opt out of covering, but perhaps they know which eyes are on them.

    Lance Cade passes away
    Written: August 13, 2010

    World Wrestling Entertainment was informed Friday morning by Lance McNaught’s father that he has passed away of apparent heart failure. WWE extends its deepest condolences to the McNaught family. Mr. McNaught was under contract beginning March 2003, performing under the name "Lance Cade," and was released October 2008. He returned to FCW, WWE’s developmental territory, in September 2009, and was released in April 2010.
Nothing about that "Garrison Cade" stuff, huh? I wonder how many people are confused and think it was Lance Storm who died. Somebody get on the horn and ask Storm.

Lance Cade was supposed to be starting an All Japan tour tonight(? tomorrow? time difference), so I wonder if he missed his flight and that's how people started to find out.

WWE's not going to skip out on deaths covering when they have a point to make:


    and was released in April 2010.


"Not under contract, doesn't count against us."

I actually just saw a post from Storm on F4's board. No one thought he was dead, he was just complaining about blaming deaths completely on the WWE and bypassing any personal responsibility.

RIP Lance. Linda's campaign may have trouble with them releasing him while in rehab. Not a big fan of using death for political purposes and I really don't blame WWE for the drug use. Owen on the other hand..

Owen's death was a freak accident. WWE is responsible, but it's impossible to "blame" anyone for a freak accident. Was it necessary to put Owen in the position from which the accident happened? Of course not - but hindsight is 20/20 and it's not like wrestling fans thought - "Wow, that's death defying and dangerous!" whenever any wrestler came in from the rafters.

What a loss. 29 is no age to be dying for anyone. Always kinda wanted to see Cade and Murdoch wrestle TNA's tag division.

I would count on Irv Muchnick going long and loud with the story Cade told about WWE firing him the second time when he asked to go back to rehab.

My point is WWE is responsible for hiring someone who obviously had no idea what they were doing with that stunt, plus not testing it out first. I am hazy on whether Vince forced Owen to do it since according to Bret's book, Owen voiced concerned over it and I think he even called Bret saying he was worried about it. Then he did it anyway due to the fact he was that kinda guy and probably didn't want to piss off Vince. The irony is Vince says he will never let anyone wrestler do anything he wouldn't do, but he never did that stunt to prove that point. Then again that is mostly heresy. What isn't heresy is the fact that WWE was responsible for Owen's death and that is why they paid. If they want to nail WWE for any wrestling death, that is the one that is rightfully on them.

I am also with CRZ on Muchnick. Irv is a spotlight grabber, but he is in position to make waves about this. Again, I don't believe if a wrestler gets a habit for drugs and this could not be drug orientated either, its WWE's fault. Time will tell, all that we know is we lost another good young wrestler today.

I think the deal was that Owen didn't want to do the stunt but agreed to it because he'd just nixed doing a storyline romance with Debra so he didn't want the people in power to think he was being a problem.

Though FWIW I think the WWE machine does contribute (not cause) more to heart disease deaths than irresponsible accidents.

No one's quite sure:

    Originally posted by f4wonline.com
    A storyline idea involving his return was proposed in September and he was signed again. While he was at home waiting to start on the main roster, a WWE official spoke with him in a phone call in January and was concerned about his lack of coherence in the coversation. At that time, he asked WWE officials to send him to rehab and completed a 30-day rehab program in February. After completing the program, the storyline idea ended up being nixed and he was released in April.
