Details on the sudden, tragic death of former WWE and TNA star Andrew “Test” Martin.
I woke up this morning to discover that both Dave Meltzer and PWinsider.com’s Mike Johnson, among others, are reporting that Andrew "Test" Martin was found dead in his apartment in Tampa.
Martin was 33 years old and only 4 days away from his 34th birthday.
This comes as quite a shock. I had spoken to Andrew within the last few weeks as he had called saying he really want to get out more on the Indies and was willing to work with promoters on his price. I regret I had not spoken with him since.
The Tampa Police Department Issued the following:
At approximately 8:00pm on Friday, March 13, 2009, Tampa Police Officers responded to the Post Harbour Apartments, located at 725 Harbour Place Drive to check on the welfare of Mr. Andrew J. Martin. A neighbor reported that she could see into his apartment through a window and that Mr. Martin appeared motionless for several hours.
Officers entered the apartment and discovered Mr. Martin to be deceased. At this time there is no indication of foul play. The deceased was transported to the Medical Examiners Office for an autopsy to determine the cause of death. The date of the autopsy is undetermined at this time. The next of kin has been notified of the death.
Andrew "Test" Martin is a former wrestling champion with the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment).
