Bruce Prichard Reveals The Origin Of Andrew “Test” Martin’s Gimmick


During a recent interview on his latest Something to Wrestle With podcast, Bruce Prichard revealed the origin of the late Andrew “Test” Martin’s ring name. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On how the “Test” name came about: “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.”

On the rumor that it was short for ‘testicle’: “A lot of people made the “testicle” reference assuming it was short for that, but it was funny the other way also.”
