Prowrestling.net reports that WWE officials are high on Lance Cade, but that some who’ve worked with him are labeling him a “bland Jeff Jarrett” and hasn’t yet shown charisma. Also, just because Shawn Michaels trained him doesn’t mean it helps, as HBK’s known to be “very honest” with wrestlers he’s trained. Others that trained at HBK’s school at some point that are on WWE’s roster are Brian Kendrick and Paul London.
Also from Prowrestling.net, according to people around the gorilla position, Vince McMahon told Mike Adamle to put down the headset and leave the announcer table last week, then ignored the play-by-play guy backstage. It seems that Mike wasn’t told ahead of time this would happen, but people Jason Powell at the site has spoken to feel Vince planned it ahead of time. This jibes with Iain’s post from earlier today based on the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
