Bruce Prichard discussed the origin of the late Andrew Martin’s ring name of Test in WWE on his latest Something to Wrestle With podcast. Highlights are below:

On how the 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.”
