Lance Cade’s Father Blasts Linda McMahon, WWE
Aug 26, 2010 - by Steve Gerweck
Harley McNaught was planning to stay silent and grieve. Then he saw what Linda McMahon said about his dead son.
McMahon, the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, was asked last week about the death of McNaught’s son, who wrestled for the WWE as Lance Cade and who had struggled with an addiction to painkillers before being released by the company, then dying earlier this month of heart failure.
“I might have met him once,” McMahon said as she insisted that the company could not be blamed for deaths of its employees outside the ring.
That response has left Harley McNaught and his son’s other survivors furious.
“I’ve been with him on two different WWE functions where she came up to him and knew him by name,” McNaught said in an interview from his office in San Antonio, where Lance died, aged 29, on Aug. 13.
“She disrespected him,” McNaught said. “She disrespected my family.”
