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.
