WWE releases Lance Cade
By JASON CLEVETT - SLAM! Wrestling


Lance Cade


World Wrestling Entertainment announced the release of Lance Cade on its website, WWE.com, today.

The message on the website was short: "World Wrestling Entertainment has come to terms on the release of Raw Superstar Lance Cade as of October 14, 2008. WWE wishes Lance the best in all future endeavors."

Cade was trained by Shawn Michaels and debuted in 1999. He was quickly signed to a WWE developmental deal, working in both the Heartland Wrestling Association and Memphis Championship Wrestling, before moving on to Ohio Valley Wrestling. He formed a team in OVW with Mark Jindrak, under the name Garrison Cade, and debuted on RAW in June 2003. Jindrak was drafted to Smackdown in 2004, breaking up the team, and Cade was associated with Jonathan Coachman until a knee injury sent him back to OVW.

Cade returned to the main roster with Trevor Murdoch in August 2005. The team won the WWE tag team titles three times and teamed up for nearly three years. Their last run ended on December 10th, losing the belts to Hardcore Holly and Cody Rhodes. Cade turned on Murdoch in May and defeated him on the June 2nd RAW. Murdoch was released shortly thereafter.

Cade immediately formed an alliance with Chris Jericho and aided him in his feud with Cade's former mentor Shawn Michaels. He helped Jericho retain the world championship against Michaels in a Ladder Match at No Mercy, but the next night lost to Michaels in a anything goes match. It would be Cade's last appearance on WWE television.
