Lance Cade Passes Away at the Age of 29

Sad news broke this morning as Prowrestling.net reported that former WWE superstar Lance Cade had died, of heart failure, at the age of 29.

Cade was primarily a tag team wrestler for his WWE tenure, and gained fame with his partner Trevor Murdoch as they captured the Tag Team Titles on several occasions. However, towards the end of his WWE career Cade was pushed as Chris Jericho's protege, and he got to take out both John Cena and Triple H in one attack. Things were looking up for the former tag champion as his singles career seemed to be flourishing. Then disaster struck as Cade was unceremoniously released from the company though reasons were never given. A couple of years ago the WWE resigned him to a farm deal but he was let go again.

With his death one has to wonder if the Cade was released due to some sort of substance or steroid abuse. Either way, it's sad since a promising wrestling career was cut shot but more importantly a young man lost his life.

Shawn Michaels (who trained Lance Cade) reacts to his students death on his twitter page:

5min aft my morning tweet I got the call about Lance. No words will b good enuff. 1 of my boys is gone. My prayers&thoughts have already been given2 his family & will continue. Goodbye Lance I Love You. I ask that all of u wud lift his family up in prayer.
