Another sad day for the industry this past week with the passing of Lance Cade.
While I didn't really get to know him as well as many of the other guys who worked in WWE during my time there, he was always cordial and very good with dot-com. We profiled him and Trevor Murdoch quite a bit when they first came up and won the World Tag Team Championship, and both he and Trevor were excellent to work with.
Lance allegedly had some demons that he either couldn't conquer or conquered too late...but 29 is just way too young for someone to lose their life, for any reason.
One writer did a lengthy piece on how this will affect Linda McMahon's Senate bid in a negative light, and I just have to shake my head: Another young talent taken away prematurely and all people want to do is point the finger at a woman who might've been further removed from WWE creative over the last few years than I was.
Sad, really ... both for Lance's family and that writer.
