Andrew 'Test' Martin, 33 year old former WWE wrestler, was discovered dead at his residence in Tampa last night.  A neighbor became concerned and asked police to do a welfare check at the Post Harbor Apartments.

Officers arrived at 8:00 p.m. and found Martin's body.  Authorities do not suspect foul play.  The Tampa coroner's office performed an autopsy and determined the cause of death to be an overdose of oxycodone.

The Canadian born 6'6", 280 lb. wrestler debuted in 1997 and went by ring names Big Foot, Martin Kane, Test and T.J. Thunder.  He retired from the WWE in 2008 and was currently employed by NWA-TNA Wresting under the ring name 'The Punisher' Andrew Martin.

During his WWE run, he earned various titles as Intercontinental, European, Hardcore and Tag-Team champion.

He was arrested for DUI in September 2007 and April 2008 - see mugshot below.

Martin would have turned 34 on St. Patrick's Day.
