According to Meltzer, he was just let go today. No other details are available, but that explains his not being there at RAW last night. He was basically invisable anyways, even with his "push".

He and Murdoch could be HUGE in TNA.

I'm a little saddened. I thought he had the makings of a strong midcard performer, and I liked that finisher.

It's surprising, because he was a lackey in such a major feud that just happened and even got a few semi-big moments... then again he was probably one of the lamest lackeys ever.

Fortunately for Cade he was able to keep his job long enough to get a pinfall victory of Michaels, as that has to have some value on the Indy/TNA market.

I would not be surprised to see more pink slips with the economy being what it is, I feel sorry for WWE stockholders.

Actually, the E's stock is exactly where it was one month ago.

This isn't the exact same thing as the NBA trying to pose their layoffs as "tough economic times" when it should be "our product is increasingly terrible and staged." Cade obviously did SOMETHING.

Speaking of Murdoch, was there ever an explanation on why he left the WWE? It seemed like he was going to get a push on Smackdown when he left the company and there was nothing about him being unhappy so that led me to believe it was taking time from wrestling completely.

Why are you guys assuming he was dumped? How do you know he didn't ask for a release?

The main reason would be that Cade is a grinder who not only made it thru the whole bland Cade n Murdoch (and bland it was) era but also the GARRISON Cade (and blander IT was) era. Now he's finally at a position where he's getting his first quasi-major push and an opportunity to make some pretty good money at a pretty young age (27.) He's not in a batter-scarred status where he would need to go to TNA for less dates. Plus, why would TNA offer him anything worthwhile, when the only thing he can really do is be a cowboy, and TNA already has had the market booked on cowboys. He's not a talent that would "make it" in ROH or Mid-South. What does that leave?

1. He did sommin.

1a. He has an injury or some other physical problem and WWE will slide in and pick him up on the cheap later (see Cryme Tyme)

2. WWE made an unexpected salary dump (what salary), which they wouldn't a week after bragging about their financial stability vs. The S&P.

3. Fuck, maybe he just wants to sell houses in Flordia like Test. Or work in a Walmart like Shane Douglas.

According to the wrestling websites, it simply was a case of the writers having nothing for him to do. He had the singing gimmick, but I guess that wasn't enough to keep him on the roster.

As for Cade, it's too bad. He's a pretty effective heel to watch. But he might be better off considering he was rather invisible for most of the HBK/Jericho feud.

Cade & Murdoch weren't the most talented tag team, but they are probably my favorite of the last couple of years because of how well they work together. They should reunite and go to TNA. Or even better, maybe they could go to Japan where they could be huge, like Stan Hansen & Terry Gordy.

OK, maybe I went a little overboard. But they do have a similar look, so maybe they may be able to parlay that into say winning the tag titles in All- Japan.

Or at least Murdoch can hit it big over there when the Japanese make him their karaoke king. His voice is solid gold, baby!

I liked Lance Cade. He's a big guy with some good power moves. I am sure they could have found SOME use for him. Just because this random bodyguard push with Jericho clearly wasn't working doesn't mean they just have to throw him under the bus. Snitzky got random pushes all the time and when those didn't work they just hit the restart button. They surely could have found SOMETHING for Cade to do.

I don't get it. At all.

Weird. For the longest time he was just "guy standing behind Jericho" during promos. Once they finally decided to get serious and push him (pinning Shawn), he is gone a few weeks later.

No big loss really. Cade fit the stereotype for the modern, generic WWE talent: Muscled, shirt gelled hair, homogenized move set, and tats. They all look the same. They are all Randy Orton. They can plug half a dozen guys into this role and few could tell a difference, or even care. At least Murdoch had a unique look, albeit bot a good one.

Maybe this is a case of the guys knowing Cade was on his was out and Shawn just did his student a solid on the way out to help him make some ends on the indy circuit. After all, how many guys in the indies can claim a victory over HBK?






I wish I could respect the law. I can't. The law is a whore who demands payment up front, and then attempts to evade providing the service paid for.

OK, completely missing it here. He had a seizure on a plane, so they fired him?
