Eric Bischoff and Kevin Nash Speak on Andrew “Test” Martin

Nick Paglino

Jeff Wilen of The Daytona Beach News-Journal has statements from both Kevin Nash and Eric Bischoff regarding the recent death of Andrew "Test" Martin.

Eric Bischoff commented by saying, "Being only 33 years old, it’s another unfortunate incident. He obviously had challenges with addiction…We were friendly, (but) he had a different group of friends as we had an age difference. I did spend a fair amount of time with him (overseas trips, etc.). He was always first-class, very cordial and a polite, professional guy…I never saw any evidence of substance abuse until about a year and a half ago. All the time before that he was always sober and professional."

Kevin Nash commented by saying, "We were really close. I helped him get into rehab. WWE picked up the dollar and helped him through rehab. Andrew went in. He was doing really well, making his meetings…He went over and worked in Japan (recently). He was in that not as busy as you once were routine. We don’t know the cause of death, and I would hate to speculate…The combination of muscle relaxers and pain pills are lethal..He was a great guy. I kind of looked at him like a little brother. I considered him one of my better friends…He was a big guy. He was a bud." Nash furthers his comments by saying that Test was in his list of top 10 friends, and now he’s going to have to move someone else onto that list.
