Add Another Name to the List of Wrestlers Dying Way Too Young

Andrew "Test" Martin may never have been that big of a star in the WWE, but he was involved in a couple of big storylines. He was slated to be the original Mr. Stephanie McMahon before HHH took her to a drive-in in Vegas. He was with Trish Stratus at the start of her career as she managed Test and Prince Albert to form the tag team "T & A." Then there was the pairing with Stacy Keibler in which his fans were labelled "Test-icles." Classic stuff. Okay, maybe not.

Test was given his walking papers from the WWE a couple of years ago. He had a history of drug problems. Since then he bounced around different promotions but failed to make it back to the spotlight of the WWE.

It's been a while since the premature death of a wrestler. That's an especially sad statement when "a while" means about a year. With Test's passing, he joins the sad ranks that include Curt Hennig, Eddie Guerrero, "Ravishing" Rick Rude and many others.

Martin wasn't even 34 years of age.

Way too many of these guys are dying young. Maybe it is time for Congress to step in. NOT.
I need your address to send you some stuff. Thanks
