wasn't[edit]

Wasn't his age 32 years?--Justakija (talk) 10:43, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

Everything I've seen says he was 33, just about to turn 34 when he died. NiciVampireHeart 03:50, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

TKO[edit]

isn't the name of his TKO the Test Gauge? Whenever he used it in ECW the commentators called it the Test Gauge, shouldnt that be added?Skilldog2 (talk) 21:45, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Union[edit]

Where it says "Union" it directs to the Corporate Ministry. Why is this here? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 63.135.149.85 (talk) 03:33, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done I fixed it. ♥NiciVampireHeart♥ 05:27, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Death?[edit]

Tammy Sytch said on her Facebook this evening that Test passed away. This true?

---This was confirmed by The Blue Meanie's facebook account. It might hold water... --- Dude. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 142.68.131.229 (talk) 06:21, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

He didn't comfirm anything. He just believed PWinsider. You can see it on his profile.--WillC 07:02, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
Uhh, no, Meanie had updates on his Facebook stating he heard it from Tammy Sytch, and three others, about a half an hour later the PWI story showed up. --DemocraplypseNow (talk) 07:03, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
Lets not put up a death section until the authorities say it is in fact him.Titan012 (talk) 07:36, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
Here is proof: http://marcuscyganiak.blogspot.com/2009/03/andrew-test-martin-passes-away.html —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.68.139.248 (talk) 07:38, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
Might I take part of that section "Tampa authorities in Florida have not yet confirmed Martin’s death".Titan012 (talk) 07:41, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Confirmed by Tampa Police and reported by local television station 10Connects that Andrew Martin has died[edit]

This looks reliable. Agreed? D.M.N. (talk) 10:49, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
Looks good enough to me, if you want to add it go ahead.Titan012 (talk) 10:50, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
I agree, reliable. — `CRAZY`(lN)`SANE` 10:51, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
Funny how the wikipedia article says, "The cause of death is not known at this time" like it's a newspaper article. I would think in an encyclopedia "at this time" is implied. I would have said, "The cause of death is not known." and leave it at that. I know, I know, picky picky. 68.254.169.228 (talk) 21:41, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
Well, now that you've pointed out one of the fallacies of WP, nobody will have the guts to change it. --Kaizer13 (talk) 23:24, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
I think since we have the {{recentdeath}} tag up, "at this time" is appropriate. Once the page settles down, then it can (an should) be removed. Firestorm Talk 23:25, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Kelly Kelly confirmed on her myspace in November 2008 that her and Test were still in a relationship. The Tampa Police went into Andrew's apartment on call by neighbor who saw him unresponsive for hours. —Preceding unsigned comment added by The Prodigy13 (talkcontribs) 04:10, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

Spelling mistake[edit]

it says something like a neighbor called the police after martin was seen lying motionless for several hours, being seen though a window, it should say through a window, can someone change it, i would but the article is locked —Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.212.222.6 (talk) 17:03, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

it says this before the main article begins by the way, like before that list with all the hyperlinks to all of the paragraphs

Article is semi-protected; spelling mistake now corrected. Krytenia (talk) 01:15, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Date of death[edit]

He died on the 12th of March, not the 13th, as media report assert. The source is Meltzer's Wrestling Observer (Mar. 23, 2009 issue). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.191.199.11 (talk) 08:37, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

im removing the citation needed mark[edit]

after it says he changed his name legally to include test so he could use the name when he wrestled after he left the wwe, it is explained by the first citation (after his name) and i dont know which joker added the citation needed mark, but im removing it —Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.218.74.44 (talk) 02:21, 7 December 2009 (UTC)


Canadian or American?[edit]

Andrew Martin is listed in the Social Security Death Index. If he had a social security card, presumably he became an American citizen at some point? So perhaps it should read "Canadian-born wrestler".

Or is it possible to have a SS number if you work in the U.S. and not be a citizen? (For the record, neither Davey Boy Smith nor Owen Hart are listed).
