Marty Jannetty’s disturbing, sad story continues.
Jannetty, a former WWF wrestler best known as half of The Rockers alongside Shawn Michaels, has been living a troubled life for a while. His Facebook page has often been a magnet for controversy and confusion, including an August 5 post in which Jannetty seemed to confess to murdering a man. In a now-deleted Facebook post, he said he had a man “disappear” in 1973.
(Warning: Post contains NSFW and offensive language.)
The message in its entirety reads:
I never told this to anyone, not even my brother Geno … because Geno would have killed him, and I didn’t want my brother to leave, damn he had only recently come home from Vietnam … I was 13 and working at Victory lanes bowling alley buying weed from a distance – that worked there .. and he put his hands on me .. he dragged me to the back of the building … you already know what he would try to do ..
That was the very first time I made a man disappear … they never found him … they should look into the Chattahoochie River … but Winnie (the girl in these pictures) I like you so damn, probably my favorite … but I already promised myself that no one would ever hurt me again … that includes you … I loved you, but you hurt me with your f – in Jamaican jealousy .. You can go your own way, I don’t need you. .
There is reason for skepticism about the post. Georgia records indicate no missing persons in Jannetty’s time frame, and his wording is also suspicious, including saying that it was the “very first time” that he “made a man disappear”. Jannetty also states that he was 13 at the time, which also makes for interesting discussion.
In further reports, Jannetty seems to indicate that he and his significant other (Winnie) had a falling out and doubled the story. Jannetty has a long time struggled with drug and alcohol abuse.
Jannetty’s Facebook page has also been a source of controversy for a long time, including 2018 posts that seem to indicate he wanted to carnal relationships with his daughter. Jannetty blamed hackers for the messages, claiming he had no sexual interest in his daughter.
Jannetty was famously thrown through the window of the Barber Shop in the early ’90s, marking the end of The Rockers and the rise of Shawn Michaels.
