• Former WWE Wrestler Passed Away 12 Years Ago Today At The Age Of 29

On this day in 2010, we lost former WWE Wrestler Lance Cade (Real name: Lance McNaught) at the young age of 29 because of heart failure due to an accidental drug overdose.

Lance started as Garrison Cade on the WWE RAW brand in 2003, but is best remembered for his run as Lance Cade, teaming with Trevor Murdoch between 2005 and 2008.

He was a former 3-time World Tag Team Champion with Murdoch in WWE.

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (August 13, 2018) – WWF Tag Team Legend Passed Away

On this day in 2018, we lost Old School WWF Tag Team Legend Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart at the age of 63 due to a head injury caused by a seizure resulting in a fall.

After touring the NWA territories for a while, he joined the World Wrestling Federation in early 1985 and was soon paired with Bret “The Hitman” Hart as a Tag Team that ended up becoming one of the greatest teams in professional wrestling history, THe Hart Foundation.

They teamed until 1991, when both Jim and Bret went on to concentrate on their singles careers, but Neidhart soon ended up teaming with Bret’s younger brother Owen Hart as ‘The New Foundation’, a team that didn’t last very long but was eventually continued in 1994 & 1995 when they were both heels.

Neidhart returned to the WWF for a short stint in 1996, portraying the masked wrestler “Who”, but eventually had his last major run with the World Wrestling Federation in 1997, when he was a member of the ‘Hart Foundation’ faction, alongside Bret Hart, The British Bulldog, Owen Hart & Brian Pillman, before jumping ship to WCW in early 1998.

He was married to Ellie, a sister of Bret & Owen, and their daughter – as seen on WWE’s reality show ‘Total Divas’ – is WWE Veteran Natalya.

In 2019, The Anvil was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as one half of The Hart Foundation.
