• Attitude Era Wrestler Passed Away 12 Years Ago Today At The Age Of 33
On this day in 2009, we lost Old School WWF Attitude Era Veteran Test (Real name: Andrew Martin) at the very young age of 33 due to a pain killer overdose. It was later revealed that Test had severe CTE.
Test wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation (later renamed WWE) from 1998 till 2004, but returned to their ECW brand in 2006 before they let him go again in 2007.
In 2008, Test had entered a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center after reaching out to WWE for help.
You can check out Test’s accomplishments below:
– WWF Intercontinental Champion
– WWF Tag Team Champion
– WCW Tag Team Champion
– 2x WWF Hardcore Champion
– WWF European Champion
There’s a longtime rumour that Test was named after the most common anabolic steroid, Testosterone, but Bruce Prichard claimed that wasn’t the case.
Test wasn’t married. He dated WWE Divas Stacy Keibler (from 2001 to 2005) and Kelly Kelly (from 2007 to 2009).
