So in the past, if I had gone to the various news sites and read "Test out for two months with an injury", I would have thought "at least he won't be on my TV" ... we'll his character is starting to really grow on me and it sucks for him as it appears he was at least headed in the right direction.

I must refrain from another Shane McMahon rant...

Test is a guilty pleasure for me and always has been. I wasn't really looking forward to the Steiner/Test-Dudleys feud though. The only positive I can see coming out of this would be cutting Steiner loose as a heel on his own and build him up as a good TV feud for Goldberg. Steiner-Goldberg was probably the second best match of Goldberg's career too.

I hope they shoot some sort of angle to explain Test's injury. They could do some chauvinistic vignettes with Test/Stacy during Test's recovery.

Since Steiner is his slave or buddy or whatever, they could always just have him Scott push him out in a wheel chair.

Or maybe they can get one of those with hand controls and he can just scoot around ringside to cause mayhem. Whatever works.

Again I'm out fo the loop, mainly due to only coming here for my wrestling news. Why is Test out again?

Without any evidence, I'll say he's suffering from the same malady that kept Sam Malone out of the 1975 World Series: a "domestic groin injury."



Sometimes I ask myself why I watch WWE after all the crap it's given me. HLA, necro, HHH, and so on. And then it hits me. That one simple phrase that can be modified and used for anything that gets you down, yet makes you keep coming back.

Every episode has the potential to be the best one ever, and I'll be damned if I'm going to miss it after sitting through this shit.

Reportedly on a house show, Shane McMahon badly fucked up a Van Terminator on Test, causing Test to break two bones in his foot. Sez Meltzer.

Whaddya wanna bet Shane doesn't get depushed, have his feud with Kane canceled, or otherwise get punished for this fuckup?

Yeah, Test hasn't really amounted to much since 1999, but he's shown flashes of being a fun heel ever since he turned, and I was hoping that once he got to cut loose from the dead weight that is Steiner, he'd be able to settle down and develop his role more in a feud with some handy midcard face. Guess not.





"I do have a degree in electrical engineering... from almost 20 years ago. Punchcard systems were just becoming obsolete, we had rotary phones in the dorms, and a modem was still a gizmo the size of a shoebox into which you squooshed the phone receiver itself. In short, we lived like animals.

The instant obsolesence is why I became a writer. The rate of punctuation in a sentence doesn't double every 18 friggin' months, and you never have some 22-year-old looming over your shoulder, shaking his head, saying "dude... you're still using adverbs...?"

How the hell do you injure your foot while sitting in the corner? Did Shane jump and land directly on his ankle?

If you picture that Test is on his ass with his legs outstretched kindof in the same line as the ropes, it's easy to see how if Shane jumps, but doesn't QUITE make it all the way, he would land on one of Test's ankles, since he jumps in line with the ropes. I'm guessing that's what happened since Shane does need to land somewhere around his leg when doing the move.

D'Lo Brown's WWE career was ruined for injuring (albeit a more severe injury) a lower midcarder.

Shane hurts a lower midcarder? *sigh*.

I'm just surprised it took this long for Shane to screw something up bad enough to put someone on the injured list for a period of time.

Ok, I think we can all agree that breaking a man's foot during a match is significantly different from crippling a man for life by breaking his spine. If you haven't noticed, wrestling is pretty physical, and, hey, sometimes people get hurt. So Shane misjudged a jump and landed on Test's ankle. It happens. That said, I'm actually going to miss Test while he's out, too. The man really was starting to pick up some momentum, more than he's ever had before really. I guess this is actually a pretty good benchmark for how well Test was coming along. Now he's out, and it turns out that people care and will miss him.

Guilty pleasure my ass. It's TEST. The WWE is less one more stiff 'hoss' for two months, and that's only a good thing. The fact that he was learning to do basic heel piss-the-crowd-off techniques (after five years in the business, mind you) shouldn't mask anyone to the fact that Test is the kind of guy that WWE shouldn't be shoving down our throats.

People cared about Test? Not judging by his crowd reactions, sans-Stacy.

Really, it's not that big of a loss. Storyline-wise, he can still stay on-screen by bossing Steiner around & forcing him to wrestle all his matches.

Some notions:

1) Shane McMahon, if I remember right, was responsible for the heavy Test pushes. He was big on the guy and even made him in Shane's Summerslam debut match. Unless Test stole one of Shane's customized t-shirts, Shane probably feels pretty bad about not just hurting a guy, but hurting HIS guy.

2) Do they bring in Ric Steiner now? Or simply, finally, put Steiner in Evolution?

3) Are Test's teeth OK, at least?

The big fear is that Test gets the 'Billy Gunn return' push after Rumble.
Hindsight being 20/20, why couldn't Vince's son have screwed up that spot at Mania 2 years ago and broken Vince's foot. That might have convinced Vince not to let his children play in his ring.

If Shane had hit Test's teeth, the Flyingest McMahon would probably be the one with the injury.

At least then we wouldn't have to hear all the bitching...

I read some interview with Rick Steiner and he was pretty down on WWE ... I think (don't quote me) he said that he ony watches to check out his brother and his good buddy, Goldberg's matches ...

Of course if money talks ...

Four matches (plus their "how we got here" video clips) all in the first hour just doesn't do anybody justice. There wasn't anything very wrong with any of those matches -- the guys just didn't have time to work with!
