Lance McNaught, better known as Lance Cade, died this morning of what is believed to have been heart failure after two family members believed there was something wrong with him over the past week.
He was 29.
McNaught's wife Tanya noticed over the past week that he didn't look healthy and seemed to be having trouble breathing and called an ambulance to rush him to the hospital on Tuesday night. He passed out at one point but was revived in the hospital. Lance asked to be released on Wednesday, and after he got home, left and didn't come back.
On Thursday, his father, Harley McNaught, said Lance showed up at his work and he was not looking good. Harley brought him to his father's home in San Antonio and was discovered having passed away late last night.
Jon Michael wrote in with this stat: “I’ve been watching the old, re-released WWE PPVs from the 1980s-’90s on Netflix, and I just watched the 1990 SummerSlam. I was so depressed by the amount of dead wrestlers, especially in light of Lance Cade’s passing, that I did a little research. I thought this may interest you. In the 1990 SummerSlam show, there were 10 matches with 27 competitors. Of those 27, 10 of them have passed away. The Big Boss Man (Ray Traylor) and Dino Bravo were at ringside for the Hogan v. Earthquake match, bringing the total number of deceased performers to 12. Of those, only Sapphire (61) and Bad News Allen (64) reached the age of 60. Leaving out Sapphire, who in my opinion was not in the business long enough to affect this list, the average age of death was 45.2 years old. These numbers are tragic enough, but then I went a step forward. SummerSlam was a PPV and therefore in theory contained the best the company had. Compared to mainstream sports: The 1990 MLB all-stars: 58 players, 1 dead, Kirby Puckett (natural causes); 1990 NHL All-Stars, 40 players, 0 dead including an honorary captain still alive at 78; 1990 NBA All-Stars, 24 players, 0 dead, including Magic Johnson, alive and coping with HIV. There is no possible way that this can be explained away, no matter how the McMahons try to spin it. Linda likes to talk about how she and Vince built a small little company into the multi-million dollar corporation they have now. The horrible thing is how they built it body-by-body.”.
