I'd say that he lived a pretty good life, considering he has nailed both Stacy Keibler and Kelly Kelly. What creeps me out about this whole thing is that a neighbor was looking through his windows.

According to that article he also had an off screen relationship with Stephanie McMahon. I'd never heard that before.

The article says 4 in the last two years in Tampa - who would be the other three?

Published: Aug 14, 2007

Instead, his partners are mourning his death. Adams, former World Wrestling Federation tag team champion, was found dead Monday at his home in northeast Tampa.


and Mike Awesome
http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/155221/former_wrestling_champion_mike_awesome.html

February 19, 2007
Word came out today (and confirmed by two independent sites) that former ECW World Champion Mike Awesome was found dead in his Tampa home on Saturday night. The cause of death is believed to be suicide although an autopsy is scheduled to be done soon. Awesome was 42-years old and working outside of the wrestling business recently.


who is the other one?

Test, Crush, Awesome, Bam Bam. That would've been an interesting stable.

A former co-worker of one of my best-friends moved down to Tampa from WV and was astonished as to the amount of drug use down there. Maybe it was just her experiences, but she told us that about 9 out of ever 10 guys she's met in the last 3 years are drug users.

Apparently, she was around less meth users in the boonies of WV than the big city of Tampa.

Well, when the house beside explodes here in WV at 3am in the morning, you know something is up.

Yeah, I hate to bring politics and various "recreational" drug use into a death thread, but Glenn Beck makes a point when you actually see the stuff on the street and the cop just stands as it happens. Have we gotten to the point that we don't care anymore?

Yeah, I'm defiantly sticking with the under. Punk works hard for what he's got even though it doesn't fit the "traditional" WWE champion mold. The E is trying to change...yet its taking its time.

One article said the name "Test" was short for "Testosterone".

I always thought that it came from his debut as a roadie/security guy for Motley Crue. His job being to set up the stage, the mics, "Test 1-2. Check".

I always thought that was a horrible name and was surprised that one stuck his whole career.

You two need to put down your own pipes.

Sorry, Test fans - this story is *not* going to become the national sensation some of you seem to think it will. I'm not saying that that's good or bad...it is what it is.

I've lived in Tampa since '03. I've also lived in DC and LA. There's BY FAR more pot smokers in Tampa than anywhere else I've lived. And these pot smokers aren't college kids -- but 45 yr olds who run major companies from 9 - 5. It's just part of the local culture.

Obviously, pot ain't meth -- and sorry, I haven't personally met any meth users, tho' I'm sure they exist -- but there IS fa permisive attitude in general towards drug use. It's not anything people are ashamed of, and there seems to be plenty of supply.

Folks here attribute it to the "Mullet Mafia" -- the local fisherman who can find WHATEVER you need.

According to Meltzer, it was the most emailed story on ESPN.com yesterday. Between that and it showing up on websites like foxnews, I could see it having a day or two of shelf life on the tabloid shows. Get ready to see Alvarez or Marc Mero on Nancy Grace soon.

If he had taken Stacy Kiebler out in the process, it is a news story. If Benoit had just hung himself instead of taking out his son and Fallen Angel as well in the process, it would have just been another wrestling death to the national media. Plus, the economy has become a slightly bigger story in March '09 compared to June/July '07.

IIRC the name was ostensibly from mic check but was also an inside drug joke a la Vic Grimes' Key short for Kilo.

Hell, I heard he was supposed to come in as Val Venis' bodyguard, and the name TEST was short for Testicles.

Wow. The end of Lance's column made me get a lump in my throat.
It's the same thing we all say (too young!) but it becomes so much more painful when you have someone who knew him attach memories to that thought.
