Andrew Martin [1975 - 2009]
A native of Whitby, Ontario, Andrew Martin was a former bouncer who started training to be a professional wrestler after meeting Bret Hart in a restaurant. He made his wrestling debut on the Canadian independent circuit in 1997 under the ring names "Martin Kane" and "T.J. Thunder." Martin joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1998 and made his debut on "Sunday Night Heat" as a bodyguard for Motley Crue. After joining The Corporation, Martin assumed the ring name "Test" and achieved much success over the next few years, capturing the WWE Intercontinental Championship, WWE European Championship and WWE Hardcore Championship, all in 2001. He also teamed up with Booker T to win both the WWE World Tag Team Championship and WCW World Tag Team Championship. He later joined Total Nonstop Action Wrestling as "The Punisher" Andrew Martin and in December 2007 announced his retirement from professional wrestling. Outside of the ring, Martin dated WWE divas Stacy Keibler and Kelly Kelly. On March 13, 2009, Martin was found dead in his Tampa Bay apartment. The cause of death has not been determined but police have ruled out foul play. He was just 33 years old.
i saw his
Damn test rip your still remembered as a great wrestler and man
Andrew died from an accidental overdose of oxycodone. He was in tremendous chronic pain as almost all wrestlers are and required opioid therapy. He should have been more careful with how many milligrams he was taking. Any medication can be turned into a poison if too much is ingested. You must exercise caution and use the lowest therapeutic dose possible while achieving good pain control. The dosage will vary greatly from individual to individual which again brings in the caution to exercise a high degree of circumspection.
drugs are a dangerous thing!!! ROIDS are bad for you.
