Former WWE Superstar Test is Dead

And another relatively young pro wrestler goes down.

And another relatively young pro wrestler goes down.

I went onto the WWE’s website this morning and to my shock, the head article was that Test, former WWE Superstar and Motley Crue body guard, had passed away. I must say that after a good five seconds I was not surprised at all that another pro wrestler, whose last in-ring action was as recent as 2007, is dead. What angers me is the way the WWE attempts to commemorate his “passing” away.

The headline on their website reads “Test Passes Away” as if to suggest that the guy was 80 years old or something. Why the hell would they use that verbiage for a guy that couldn’t be more than 42 years of age? He obviously has “passed” by some cause that the WWE doesn’t want to get any bad press for.

What doesn’t sit well with me even more is the WWE’s half-hearted effort with a literally one paragraph article about the man. And they say they extend their “deepest condolences” to the Test family. I doubt the WWE even knows his damn family.

I’m not going to lie. I love pro wrestling. But some of the stuff they do is just way too obvious, and I’m not talking about the show itself. And even though Test was not one of the biggest headliners, and we still don’t know for sure how he left our world, he still deserves a little more than the obituary-like comments that his former employers gave him.
