Lance Storm writes a touching tribute to his recently retired friend, Edge. You can read the whole commentary here. Here’s a brief excerpt:

Before I wrap this up I will add a few personal notes, from my career with Edge, because Edge was a huge part of my time in WWE. We first met in 1995 working one of Tony Condello’s Winnipeg “Death Tours”, so when I arrived in WWE in 2001, we became friends pretty quick. We were travel partners on the road and so many of my WWE firsts involved my good friend.

My first WWE PPV match was at the Invasion PPV where Mike Awesome and I teamed up to face Edge and Christian. My first and only WWE singles match on PPV was at Summer Slam 2001 where I lost the Intercontinental Title to Edge. My debut match at New York’s Madison Square Garden was my infamous 1:08 match with Edge where I failed in my attempt to regain the IC Title. My first WWE World Tag Team title run came when Christian and I defeated Edge and Hulk Hogan at Vengeance 2002.

In his latest blog post Lance Storm shares some poignant thoughts and interesting moments about his time with Lance Cade.  He also lists other notable deaths in pro wrestling that have happened recently.  Here’s a short excerpt from his post.  It’s a great and touching read.  Check it out.

I worked with Lance Cade a lot during my time in WWE including having his WWE debut match on Sunday Night Heat. It was the battle of the Lance’s, which I won with the sharp shooter (match available on YouTube) which led to him being renamed Garrison Cade in coming weeks, because WWE decided they didn’t want two wrestlers named Lance on the same show. I have no idea who came up with the name Garrison, but Christian and I always used to rib him about the moniker and joked they should have called him Barry so he could be Barry Cade (Barricade).
