• Back Story On How Andrew Martin Got The Name “Test” In WWF

During a recent edition of Something To Wrestle, Old School WWF Veteran Bruce Prichard (a.k.a Brother Love) revealed how Andrew Martin got the name “Test” on his arrival into the World Wrestling Federation in 1998.

Below is the story:

“The version was that since he was a roadie for Motley Crue, we actually had him travel for them a little bit and we made him go out on the microphone and the only thing he would go out and say was, ‘test…test.’

So, Shawn Michaels said, ‘well, he’s going out there and letting everybody know what his name is.’ He became Test out of that.

A lot of people made the testicle reference assuming it was short for that, but it was funny the other way also.”
