Can’t get away from the drugs today, I guess: According to the UK Sun by way of Prowrestling.net, the cause of death for Andrew “Test” Martin was “an accidental overdose of Oxycodone.” Not to sound like a dick, but (a version of) that stuff is known as “hillbilly heroin” for a reason. Squeezing the word “accidental” in there doesn’t sound too convincing when talking about a drug that has a nickname, let alone a nickname that looks like Terry Taylor came up with it.
For another angle, pre-cause-of-death-announcement, read this write-up by Mike Mooneyham:
Nice read, lots of people with nice things to say about Martin. I still say one of my favorite matches I saw live was Test vs. Shane McMahon at Summerslam 1999. That doesn’t make this any less surprising. -Eric
