Andrew "Test" Martin
Test was living proof that it pays to be in the right place at the right time. In late 1998, the oversized Canadian caught
the eyes of World Wrestling Entertainment officials when he was working as a bodyguard for Motley Crue, and was soon signed
to a contract.
Mixing business with pleasure, Test eventually fell for Stephanie McMahon. The affair infuriated the male McMahons, and
at SummerSlam 1999, Test was forced to fight for his love against Shane McMahon. Test's adoration for Stephanie ultimately
carried him to victory. Despite the win, things quickly turned ugly for the young lovers when Stephanie concocted a devious
plan to leave Test and marry Triple H.
Refusing to be derailed by a broken heart, Test persevered. Over the next few years, he engaged in many high-profile
encounters. His most notable match took place at SummerSlam 2001 where he unsuccessfully defended his Intercontinental
Championship against Edge's United States Title in a Unification Match. He also captured the European and Hardcore Championships
during his WWE career, as well as the World Tag Team Championship with Booker T.
Test In TNA
Following Andrew Martin's dismissal from World Wrestling Entertainment, the former Intercontinental Champion briefly
resurfaced in TNA Wrestling.
Identified as "The New Enforcer in TNA," "The Punisher" Andrew Martin made his debut in the company on the August 2, 2007
episode of TNA iMPACT!. Debuting as a babyface, he aligned himself with Abyss and Sting by helping the two defeat
AJ Styles and Christian Cage in a tag team ladder match.
At the subsequent Hard Justice pay-per-view, Martin, Abyss, and Sting defeated Styles, Christian Cage
and Tomko in a Doomsday Chamber of Blood Match. This would prove to be Martin's one and only match for TNA as organization
officials decided against offering him a contract due to concerns over his physical size in light of the impending United
States Congress investigation into the wrestling business following the Chris Benoit family tragedy. Furthermore, his
unimpressive debut, the feeling that he wouldn't mesh well in the locker room, and an untimely post he wrote on
his MySpace account defending the usage of steroids in professional wrestling, also factored into the company's decision to
not bring him back.
