Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends during this hard time.

I know someone will say he sucked as a wrestler, but this still blows that he died at a young age.

Another one bites the dust. As someone who witnessed most of his WWE career, all the way from the very beginning, I have to say RIP. He wasn't a superstar but he'll be remembered.

No ruling yet, but the cops say no foul play is suspected. If anything, I'm willing to bet it was a bad ticker thanks to roids.

Chilling words from Test in an interview he did almost 2 years beforehand:

That's really sad.

I actually liked him as a performer. He wasn't great, but he definitely had an intensity that gave his moves that little realism that a lot of guys lack.

RIP Test.

Death from steroids can definitely be suspected. I just wonder why it happens to wrestlers so much more than it happens to other athletes. Also, suicide's possible, because there was no foul play, and people tend to do alot of contemplating about their lives before holidays and birthdays (it was four days before his, according to the quote), he may have been depressed. We'll find out eventually.
