Andrew “Test” Martin wrestled in a dark match prior to Raw last night. He defeated Val Venis with his feet on the ropes. World Wrestling Entertainment released Test in November of 2004 while he was out with an injured neck. He has been wrestling overseas for the most part since his release from WWE. He’s been incredibly critical of WWE’s business decisions on his official website, AndrewTestMartin.com. Also, Chuck Palumbo was released the same week Test was in 2004. After participating in dark matches prior to Raw and Smackdown last week, he was rehired. Perhaps the same thing will happen with Test.
