World Wrestling Entertainment has signed former tag team champion Lance Cade to a new contract.Â He reported to Florida Championship Wrestling, WWE’s developmental territory, earlier this week.
Cade, who was trained by Shawn Michaels in Texas, is best known from his tag team with Trevor Murdoch. He had been in the midst of the biggeset push of his career, working as Chris Jericho’s second during a feud with Michaels when he was suddenly released in October 2008. WWE announcer Jim Ross reported at the time that Cade was let go after suffering a seizure on a flight that required emergency treatment. The belief at the time was that Cade’s seizure was the result of “something he had taken.”
Since his WWE releasse last year, he’s been working for the NWA in California as well as in Japan.
