Wrestling Bios Presents - The Life and Career of "Test" Andrew Martin
Andrew Martin, better known as his ring name Test, made his WWE debut towards the end of 1998. Coming into the World Wrestling Federation in 1998 as a newcomer was no easy task, the Attitude Era had began picking up a ton of steam and new guys had to prove themselves both in the ring and in the locker room. Test was able to stick around in the WWF during the attitude era, leading to a career that had many ups and downs.
When Motley Crue showed up in the WWF to play some music to wrestling fans, their huge bodyguard was by their side. The bodyguard would also test the band's microphones, hence the name "Test" which Andrew would go on to become famous for. A few months after the Motley Crue performances, Test reappeared in the WWF, aligning himself with The Rock and The Corporation. From here, Test would go on to have a multi-year career with the WWE that included many title wins and some interesting storylines.
Many people will remember the Stephanie McMahon / Test wedding of 1999, the Test and Albert tag team, the "Un-Americans" stable, and Test's on-screen relationship with real life girlfriend Stacy Keibler. This video covers all these topics and more.

    For reals, WWE kinda selective of which it ain't fair. The likes of Shad, Van Vader, the very own Test, Chris Kanyon, Road Warrior were all ignored like no man's business. Wouldn't say much on Luke Harper Brodie Lee of which they shared and recognized him after complaints from fans and wrestlers, but e bottom line remains, they gets to acknowledge these guys they made em too

    Test was the big guy who moved fast in the ring. I remember the Stephanie storyline. Was really believable and that benefitted Test's character. If he would've turned heel instead of a typical big idiot, then who knows. I had a wrestling figure of him when i was young. I liked his big boot attack.

    The problem is not that HHH stole the show and married stephanie instead of test and that is not the reason test did not became a bigger star .. its because test had no mic skills to help him further his career ..

    If only Andrew had known how his fans truly felt about him, he might still be with us today. I remember the last time that I saw him... I gave him a hug that lifted him off his feet; and told him that I was proud of him. Even then, I saw in his face that he was still the small town boy that he always was; and that deep down, he wasn't happy. If only I could have said, or done something to intervene... my friend might still be with us. Andrew was, as Bret said, one if the good ones. 😢👍

      @Ryan Oz Yes. I worked with him in nightclubs and bars... fought beside him, literally shoulder to shoulder... partied with him and other friends... etc... He asked me to go with him and another friend to train at Brett Hart's ranch, but I chose to pursue a career in Information Technology (which turned out to be the right choice for me). The three of us were the same height; and I was closer to Andrew's build, while our friend George was barrel-chested. I knew that Andrew could do well in the WWF/WWE, but being on the road so much... I suspect that he missed his family and friends.

    One thing worth mentioning is later in 2000, a now then Test did a promo to a then face HHH stating "when I was to marry Stephanie I was supposed to get money, power and watch my career skyrocket to the top. Then it was you who got the money, you who got the power and you who watched your career skyrocket to the top, while I sat back and let it happen". Watching this back, I now wonder how much of that was scripted, and how much of that was Andrew literally letting real feelings out there.......... at the time I didn't know any of this info so assumed it was a scripted promo but makes me wonder......

    I do know,no one will give a damn about my writing but I'm gonna write anyway. Test always looked me that,he had had something special.I always,tried to pick him in WM 2000 and WWE Raw 2002.Wish I had encountered him at once.Despite his gimmick,he looked always frankly.Wish WWE gave him a chance (if not in main brands,in ECW).But they screwed him up.Nowadays,no one even knows about him.So to say,WWE let him to be vanished.(Didn't give a tribute to in his memory,Didn't induct him to HoF.)But big man,I don't know if you see these comments in heaven,but you'll never be forgotten.I'll always remember you with your long blondie hair,sunglasses and your old attire(during 1998-2002).You'll always be remembered BIG GUY!

    It has been a while , a really long time since I decided to mention a very short conversation with Drew. I had known him 28 years and his early days 21 22 years old we were in sales together and worked side by side. I remember him telling me that he was going to be a professional wrestler. I knew it was a dream of his, then all of a sudden he was gone. The next thing I knew was he signed with ( at the time) WWF which ofcourse became WWE. I had not been able to reach him until he show up in my old neighborhood. I didnt realize he was looking for me until my mother called and said Andrew came by to see you. I met with him later at one of our favorite hang out spots. Drew had told me and kept me up to speed on what he felt was really going on. He did a personal feelings for steph, no dought. Truthfully, as the media would and WWE would say that that broke his heart. No, no so much. Not according to my long time friend. I remember Drew a few months before his passing he told me that he felt as if he had been used. Which in turn made him feel useless. I will not go into detail but I will say this.....Drew ( Test) seen what others could not. Almost as if he knew he was more than a foot in the ground. R.I.P. brother....I'm sure not only me but many still miss you terribly....

    Great video, still miss test a bunch, but I have to be contest what you said about Benoit. I disagree wholeheartedly, every wrestling fan remembers Benoit he was one of the best and consistent performers for the WWE. He gave his body, like all others for our petty enjoyment. Obviously no one "celebrates" what Benoit did to his wife and family, but we weren't there, we just see the outside of a man, but we never, never truly know what a man is going through, what he went through that pushed him over the edge. Only God knows. Benoit will always be a legendary in ring performer.
