Former WWE wrestler Andrew "Test" Martin was found dead in his Tampa apartment Friday night, according to Tampa TV station WTSP. He was 33.
"Police were called to his home for a welfare check after a neighbor said she could see into his apartment at Post Harbor Apartments and noticed that Test appeared motionless for several hours.
"Right now, Police say they don't think there was any foul play involved."
Martin is a former WWE Intercontinental, European and Hardcore champion. He announced his retirement from professional wrestling in 2007.
"Martin worked for WWE from 1998 to 2004 and 2006 to 2007. Martin was thrust into a prominent position from the onset because of his size and muscularity, with the "Test" nickname being short for 'testosterone.'
"The 6-foot-6, 280-pound Martin held numerous WWE titles but was best known for his storyline "romances" with Stephanie McMahon (the daughter of promotion owner Vince McMahon) and Stacy Keibler. Martin and Keibler, now an actress who appeared on Dancing With the Stars, had an off-screen relationship as well until splitting several years ago."
