Cade was originally trained by Michaels and Rudy Boy Gonzales alongside Bryan Danielson and Brian Kendrick, among others at the now-defunct Shawn Michaels Wrestling Academy in San Antonio, Texas. That status as a former Michaels student led to WWE aligning Cade with current World champ Chris Jericho in his feud with Michaels.
Cade's interference helped lead to Shawn Michaels' loss to Jericho in a Ladder Match at the No Mercy PPV. Michaels defeated Cade on Raw, destroying him with a steel chair in what turned out to be Cade's exit from the company on 10/6.
Cade was scheduled for several upcoming house show lineups at the time of his release. The release would theoretically open him up to team with former partner Trevor Murdoch on the independent and international scene.
