Just curious...my wife and I were watching Heat last night and she asked me why Test is called Test. I said, "Good question!"
Does anybody know how the "Test" gimmick began? What significance does the name have?

As far as I know, he was a bouncer for Motley Crue, and also did some sound work. So when they needed a mic test, they would say "test, test" and he would respond, so it became a nickname.
Other people have said that groupies would have to pass a performance "Test" with Andrew before they got to meet the band. I think that would fit his gimmick better, but I don't think its accurate.

I think it was because Test came in as the bodyguard of Motley Crue. I think they made a reference that if women wanted to get close to the band, they had to "pass the Test." Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

If I remember correctly, Meltzer also joked when he was introduced, since "Test" was a euphomism for steroids or some other performace-enhancing drug.

I don't think he was ACTUALLY a bouncer for Motley Crue. Confirmation on this would be excellent, though (anyone?).

BUT....

Unless I'm mistaken (and that's quite possible), he WAS a bouncer at a bar/club called The Regent in Oshawa, about 10 minutes from here and about a 5 minute drive from Whitby.

I also seem to remember being at that club some years ago, and seeing this rather HUGE guy with blond hair, causing me to say to myself "I don't think I wanna mess with that guy". However, my vivid imagination could be overriding reality again.... :)

I thought I heard (not a joke) that Russo originally wanted to call him "Testicles", but was overruled by his pals at Standards & Practices and decided to (so to speak) shorten it? Of course, why Vinny wanted to call him "Testicles" in the first place, Lord only knows.

I don't think he was a real roadie or bouncer for Motley Crue..
They just used this to introduce him when the band once performed on Raw.
The name is probably indeed for 'pass the Test' or whatever you wanna call that. I also heard it could be Testosteron and not Testicles...
Now what is THAT all aboot?

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that he was never a roadie for Crue...not really the confirmation you're looking for, but another vote for the "no" side.



Q: If you could have interviewed Marvin Gaye, where would you have proposed to meet and what would you have asked him?

A: I would have met anywhere as long as it was before his father shot him. I would have asked him, "Hey, don't you think there's some chance that your father might shoot you? To death, I mean?"

iirc, the "testosterone" thing only came up when they were thinking of having him tag with val venis.



It's just you against the group mind.
