Well you know I've come to be the BEHIND THE SCENES reporter here for your WWE needs and usually we have fun with it all...today sadly reality of it all hit home, and I'm sad to report the passing of Test, former WWE talent at age 33. http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Wrestling/2009/03/14/8748976.html has a lot on his career and how he was found in his home in Florida. We see so many deaths in this industry and it saddens me another one comes, again not even before the age of 40. He's a Canadian talent who will be sorely missed.

For some photos on Test's career, you maybe check that article as well. Other sources for this news include http://www.f4wonline.com/content/view/8645/ and http://www.thefightnetwork.com/news/wrestling/2941/andrew_test_martin_dead_at_33

He wasn't one of the best in ring but had his moments like tagging with Albert (now Giant Bernard in Japan) and being managed by one of my all time favorite Divas Trish Stratus to form T & A. He was also a part of the Unamericans which was another form of a Team Canada in WWE. He's had ups and downs in and out of the ring, but his sudden passing is still a painful finding. He shall be missed.

its the sad reality for all wrestlers who work really hard day in and day out to entertain people young and old only to be told they are not entertainers or sportsman because wrestling is faked (of course that might be true but as i have said to people...you try taking a suplex off the top rope and have to stand up with a minute week in and week out?) of course the sad fact is too many wrestlers are passing away so young wether it was drug based like Davey Boy Smith or Eddie Guerrero, Accidental like Owen Hart or Controversially like Chris Beniot and yet the world will not care about this simply because its a stage show to them and that annoys me greatly so i ask we all remember not just Test today but all those superstars who gave us so much in the short time they were on this planet

Eddie Guerrero 1967 - 2005

Chris Beniot 1967 - 2007

Mike Awesome 1965 - 2007

'The British Bulldog' Davey Boy Smith 1962 - 2002

Chris Candido 1972 - 2005

"Mr Pefect" Kurt Hennig 1958 - 2003

"Crash Holly" Mike Lockwood 1971 - 2003


and so many more - They are all sorely missed by the fans

TY for the postings as yes the other side of it is how we lose so many of this industry, and scarier in an era of steroids (see that other sports?) and other temptations they die before the age of 40 for some part. Yes Benoit's death still hits hard since he was my fav for a long time, and I recall being at a comp when Eddie's death was reported to me that I held in my university a showing of his DVD in the pub to all onlookers. I met Curt Hennig at a Wrestlemania Fan Axxess and he was kind enough to give an autograph I still own. I also won an Eddy Guerrero signature card before his death for the defunct collector card game. There are many more names on the list and it saddens me each time I hear it and even more now being a reporter here to report it. Godspeed.

R.I.P. Test. Why is this drug thing so serious now? They should stop steroids users.
