Backstage News: Cade Update, Trish/Cena Injured, New Writer; more

Ryan Clark

Garrison Cade is working out in OVW (announced on their shows as Lance) after being medically cleared following injury. He was last seen on Raw several months ago with Jonathon Coachman as his manager.

On the live RAW feed before Monday night, I saw a backstage segment with Trish Stratus sporting a neck brace and a cut on her upper lip. The segment never aired, but the basic gist of it was that she was injured and would return to get payback.

Speaking of that Trish injury, she nearly had her upper lip ripped off during a house show match with Victoria in Honolulu this past weekend. She received several stitches after the match and obviously was said to be upset about the injury.

There has been preliminary discussions between Kevin Sullivan and WWE officials regarding a writing position on the creative team. That’s not confirmed though.

U.S. champion John Cena sprained his ankle Sunday night in Anchorage, but he will be working through it.
