On an episode of his weekly ‘Oh! You Didn’t Know’ podcast, D-Generation X member The Road Dogg Jesse James spoke about former WWF Intercontinental Champion Test and revealed why Test never made it above mid-card status in the World Wrestling Federation.
Here’s what Road Dogg said:
“I don’t know this for sure, but you’re asking me and so I’m telling you what I think.
I think drugs were the downfall of Test as well. I say that because they were the downfall of The Road Dogg also. He was a good kid. He was a good talent.
He was long. He was quick across the ring. There were a lot of things, a lot of positives, and again, I don’t know. I got screwed up and fired so I wasn’t there when he got screwed up and fired.
Thank God in heaven above I came out the other side of it. A lot of my friends haven’t. If you don’t do drugs, don’t start, and if you started, stop.”
Test (real name: Andrew Martin) worked for the WWF from October 1998 until he was released in November 2004. He returned to WWE in July 2006 to perform on the ‘ECW on SciFi’ brand until he was let go again in February 2007.
The last time we saw him wrestle for a major promotion was when Andrew Martin went to ‘Total Nonstop Action!’ for a few months in 2007, before he tragically passed away on March 13th 2009 at the young age of 33.
