RIP Andrew “Test” Martin

The wrestling world has lost another of it’s brethren. On March 13, 2009, Andrew Martin was found dead in his Tampa Bay apartment. The cause of death has not been determined; however, police believe that foul play was not a factor. Police were called in after a neighbor reported Martin appearing motionless for several hours through a window outside of his apartment.

Under the ring name Test, Martin wrestled for World Wrestling Federation (later World Wrestling Entertainment) from 1998–2004, and 2006–2007. Most recently, he worked for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling under the ring name “‘The Punisher’ Andrew Martin”. Martin enjoyed success as a singles competitor, becoming an Intercontinental Champion, European Champion and Hardcore Champion. Martin was also successful in the Tag team division, becoming a WWF and WCW World Tag Team Champion with Booker T.
