– Former WWE star Andrew “Test” Martin (and boyfriend of ECW Diva Kelly Kelly) posted an apparently drunken rant on Ultimate Warrior’s return to wrestling on hisMySpace account. From what I can understand, Test starts off his rant by saying that he is 33 years old and barely remembers who Warrior is, and that they expect the average fan to remember him. He then says that when he was trying to break into professional wrestling, he was thinking about joining Ultimate Warrior’s short-lived wrestling school, but soon met Bret Hart and told him that Warrior couldn’t even teach him a headlock. Test then relays a story on Warrior refusing to sign an autograph for a kid brought backstage at a WWF show in the late 80s/early 90s. Bret rants about this incident in his book as well. Test then says that Warrior “couldn’t draw flies” after Hogan lost the belt to him, and rants on Warrior some more by making fun of him for using the “juice” and briefly wearing a singlet with painted-on muscles in 1992. Taken verbatim from his MySpace page, here is what Test posted:
