Andrew Tampa Police have confirmed to TMZ that former WWE wrestling star Andrew "Test" Martin has been found dead last night in his Harbour Island, FL apartment.

Police responded to a call on their welfare hotline from a concerned neighbor who had seen Martin motionless and was, "concerned for his well being," after peering through Martin's apartment window.

Martin, 33, last worked for the WWE in 2007 and once had a relationship with former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant Stacy Keibler.

The cause of death has not been revealed, but police say no foul play has been indicated.

Damn, so sad for someone so young to pass away. The whole Test/Steph/HHH wedding angle was one of my favorites from back in the day.

If you look at the "dead wrestlers", take a peek at the ages all these people died. Top age was 46. Notice the pattern?

Another white guy dying from a drug overdose... sooooo typical. Why should we care? He's just an overpaid white clown, performing for a white audience... why did this make the news?!?!?!?!?! Save the taxpayers money, no need to do a toxicology report. I already have the results. Cocaine and Heroin overdose. Also he had high levels of the prescription pain medicine OxyContin and Morphine in his blood. Like I said, just another white guy overdosing on drugs.

Obvious Troll Is Obvious. GTFO, and go back with the rest of the trap-loving losers over to the crappy 4chan.

Anyway...

I give my sincerest condolences and prayers to his family, friends, and fellow wrestlers, all of whom I know are hurting so much. It's hard enough to hear about and deal with these sorts of things simply being a fan, so I can only imagine what it's like having been so close to him. I hope he finds the peace that he never seemed to find in life.

That sport entertainment industry just abuses the talent to the point of a career lasts only a few years and then releases them. LIVE HARD AND DIE YOUNG CAUSE THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE TO REPLACE YOU. Top of the world one day and the next your a washed up has been . Such a shame and a waste.

Something to consider is all of the early deaths is headed towards baseball players. Football has already seen the life expectancy of its players shortened due to steroids and HGH. Fans often wonder or complain about all the time current players spend on the DL compared to years ago. The simple answer is the use of steroids and HGH leads to these muscle breakdowns. This path also leads to early death.

The reason the wrestlers die so much earlier is they use year round. The baseball and football players can cycle off during their off season. Wrestling doesn't have an off season.
