Storm shared the story in a Twitter thread that Vince got him mixed up with Lance Cade, who died in 2010. Storm was on vacation in Ontario and got a message from Dave Meltzer that Vince had left a message for Meltzer to call him, so he could talk about Storm's death.
Meltzer then got another message from Vince that he didn't have to call him because he realized that it wasn't Storm but Cade who passed.
Lance Storm shared that he was confused about why Vince needed to talk to Meltzer and speculated that Vince figured if he died young due to drugs, then the entire industry was doomed.
Below is the thread:

Dave said it was strange because he hadn't spoke to Vince in quite some time, and the message was for Dave to call him because he had to talk to him about My death. Cont..— Lance Storm (@LanceStorm) June 15, 2019
There was then a second message from Vince on the machine left a little bit later where Vince told him not to bother calling because he realized it wasn't me that died but Lance Cade. Cont..— Lance Storm (@LanceStorm) June 15, 2019
Dave and I wondered what it would be about my death specifically that would move Vince to need to talk to Dave. I speculated that perhaps Vince figured that if I was dying young due to drugs the entire industry was doomed.— Lance Storm (@LanceStorm) June 15, 2019
