test1.jpgAndrew “Test” Martin has spoken of his release from the WWE on his official Myspace page

“Just want to thank you fans for the last year…I love to hear you boo me. I always said I would get out of wrestling when it wasn’t fun anymore….and that’s what I did. Don’t get me wrong I still love wrestling, I always will but right now the WWE is not for me but no sour grapes I had some fun up until a month ago when the politics kicked in like they always do and at first ECW was so much fun, I can only imagine it when it was the real ecw but when Paul Heyman left ECW left with him..what was left of it. Sorry if I let any of you fans down but I needed to leave there for me…so to all the fans thanks again.”

So is Test telling us that he was the one who walked out on the WWE rather than being fired?

I don’t believe it, why would he leave a guaranteed paycheck just like that?

I think he is just trying to save face.

test.jpgJust over a month since his ECW World Title match against Bobby Lashley at the Royal Rumble, ECW superstar Test has been released by the WWE.

In truth, the writing has been on the wall for this as only two weeks ago Andrew “Test” Martin was suspended for violating the wellness policy, which we all knew when he debuted last year because the guy is huge. It was obvious he was taking the pills to anyone who was watching.

Never the greatest worker, Test was pushed several times throughout his two spells with the WWE but never seemed to be able to get over after his 1999 angle with Stephanie McMahon which led to their famous wedding episode of Raw. The WWE really dropped the ball late that year when they had Vince McMahon feud with Triple H, rather than Steph’s husband to be Test, who HHH had stolen Stephanie from.

A decent big guy, who had some nice moves up his sleeve now and again but in truth he was always a poor man’s Kevin Nash (in Nash’s prime of course). His street fight match against Shane McMahon at Summerslam 1999 being Test’s highlight.


WWF/E (1998 – 2004)

WWF Intercontinental Champion (1 time) –

WWF Tag Team Champion (1 time) – with Booker T

WCW World Tag Team Champion (1 time) – with Booker T  (wwe’s version of wcw)

WWF Hardcore Champion (2 times)

WWF European Champion (1 time)

WWE (2006-2007)

Wrestled as a top heel in WWE’s new version of ECW on the Sci-Fi network, where he briefly teamed with Mike Knox and won himself title matches in the Elimination Chamber and a one-on-one match with Bobby Lashley at the Royal Rumble.

Matt’s verdict of the chances of him going to TNA…. I can see it actually. He could do a job for them if pushed correctly, especially if they team him with Christian Cage even?? I’d pick him up, but you have to think if TNA wanted him, they would have signed him in 2005 or early 2006 when he was a free agent.

3023366.jpgDave Scherer is reporting that the currently suspended for 30 days ECW superstar Test (because of violating the wellness policy) was involved in a car accident over the weekend in the Tampa area.

From Gerweck.net….

“…his Corvette and struck a parked car. He reportedly passed a field sobriety test, and no one was injured”.

Of course, because of his suspension, Test has been left out of the New Breed vs. ECW originals feud that is the whole focus of ECW on Sci-Fi channel at the moment.

You know as much as people like to hate on Test, I think he has done a great job on Tuesday nights as one of the top heels on the show and if it wasn’t for the fact that he has been booked against the likes of Lashley in recent weeks, more people might have noticed it!
