Andrew "Test" Martin passed away yesterday in his Tampa apartment at the age of 33. No details have been released regarding his death, and Tampa police are refusing to comment.

Born in Canada, Martin signed with WWE in 1998 and made his debut as a bodyguard for the band Motley Crue. He then joined The Rock at the end of 1998, and eventually aligned himself with The Corporation.

Perhaps Test's biggest TV angle was when he was supposed to marry Stephanie McMahon on RAW, but Triple H ended up getting one up on him, drugging Stephanie and taking her to Las Vegas to get married.

His first run with WWE ended in 2004 after he had back surgery.

In 2006, he returned to WWE but only lasted till a year later and was released again after he failed the Wellness Program test, and was suspended for 30 days. Martin said that the release was something he requested and had nothing to do with the Wellness failure.

In 2007, he joined TNA Wrestling as "The Punisher," but he didn't last very long.

Last year, he was booked for DUI and arrested in Pasco County, Fl. but was released a day later.

During his time in WWE, he won the European title once, Hardcore title once, Intercontinental title once, Tag Team title once with Booker T, and also the WCW tag team title during the Invasion angle once with Booker T.
