WWE Ex­pe­ri­ence (2004-2005) is rock­ing the nos­tal­gia on our TV screens, re­liv­ing in-ring ac­tion from almost 15 years ago. If you don’t sub­scribe to the WWE Net­work (see more on p39 about that), this is the place to go for a re­minder of past Su­per­stars, in­clud­ing…

BOBBY LASHLEY Then: the col­lege wrestling champ mus­cled his way into the WWE in 2004 as a 28year-old with big things to prove. But he never lived up to his po­ten­tial and left the WWE in 2008. Now: Bobby started cage fight­ing in 2009 and is ru­moured to be re­turn­ing to the WWE. He’s still a fit­ness junkie. MICHELLE MCCOOL Then: in 2004, Michelle took part in the Raw Diva Search. The 24-year-old only placed sev­enth but was still signed up by the WWE af­ter she im­pressed the judges. Her first char­ac­ter was as a fit­ness trainer on Smack­Down, be­fore be­ing repack­aged as “The All-Amer­i­can Diva”. Now: it’s Mrs Cal­away to fans – Michelle re­tired in 2011, a year af­ter mar­ry­ing The Un­der­taker Mark Cal­away. They live in Texas, where Michelle is a fit­ness trainer and mom to her and Mark’s four-year-old daugh­ter Kaia. TEST Then: An­drew Martin ar­rived in 1998 as an un­named body­guard for metal band Möt­ley Crüe, who were play­ing at a WWE event – behind the scenes, he’d been trained by Bret “The Hit­man” Hart and was a WWE star un­til he left in 2004. Now: 34-year-old Test was per­form­ing on the in­die cir­cuits in Florida in 2009 when he died of a drug over­dose. His WWE pro­file re­mains locked.

Rem­i­nisce with old-school WWE stars like Bobby Lashley, Michelle McCool and Test.
