More on the Release of Lance Cade

From: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

Lance Cade’s release from WWE this past Tuesday was not something planned and is now being looked at as a disciplinary issue. Jim Ross noted in a new blog that on a recent plane flight, Cade had a seizure and was taken off the plane. Lilian Garica, who was on the flight, made sure he was rushed by ambulance to the hospital where he had several tests done.

They found nothing wrong with him. However, whatever it was that caused the problem was enough for WWE to cut ties with him. One belief is that he could have been the wrong guy on the wrong day in the sense that they just had an issue with Jeff Hardy being removed from a flight and did nothing about it. Whether it was setting an example or they felt they had to let him go remains to be seen. Shawn Michaels was seen as a big proponent of Cade’s backstage, which was evident when Michaels put him over on TV a few weeks ago leading into the No Mercy PPV.

With Cade’s win over Michaels and being aligned with Chris Jericho, it looked like Cade’s long-awaited break was finally coming. Cade, who isn’t commenting in full on his release from WWE, did say he knows what he did to cause the release, but felt things could have been handled better on both sides. He is now looking at working the independent scene and doing things with his career that he wanted to do before signing with WWE.

It should be noted that Michaels destroying Cade the night after No Mercy on Raw with all the chair shots was not a reaction to him having a bad night on the 9/29 Raw against DX and had nothing to do with him being let go. Cade did work Raw house shows over the weekend in Reno and San Bernardino, going over D’Lo Brown at both events. He was also scheduled for upcoming house shows as well. This just shows that if you’re a younger guy and you screw up, best of luck or as they now say - you get future endeavored.
