Former WWE Star and Intercontinental Champion Marty Jannetty explains Facebook murder confession amid police investigation.
Marty Jannetty was once one of the young bright stars the WWE (then known as the WWF) had placed to become future pillars of the company. He and Shawn Michaels were part of the “The Rockers” and looked destined to reach greater heights.
Despite suffering from the same demons in the early stages of their careers, Shawn Michaels eventually overcame them and became a legend in the industry and is considered as the greatest of his generation. Jannetty on the other hand, fell to obscurity and only makes the headlines now for his controversial and bold claims on social media.
One such post however, seems to have landed the former WWE Intercontinental Champion in trouble. In a since deleted facebook post, Jannetty admitted to have made a man disappear after he tried to force himself on Jannetty while the then 13-year old tried to purchase Marijuana from him.

A police investigation has since been launched by the Columbus police. Jannetty meanwhile, has already claimed self defence as he looks to go on damage control mode.
“I almost got raped. If I couldn’t have handled myself, that dude would’ve raped me,” the 60-year-old Jannetty said in an interview on the Boston Wrestling MWF YouTube channel. “I didn’t say I killed him. I said he disappeared.”
Jannetty revealed that the man dragged him to the back of the alley and tried to take his pants off. The then 13 year old Jannetty, then took a brick and hit him in self defence.
“He was a front desk clerk,” he continued. “He was known to sell the wd. What I didn’t know was he lured in little kids. I can’t say he deserved to die, but he deserved to get his a beat. And, when I was beating him in the head with a brick, I was only trying to beat his a**, wasn’t trying to kill him.”
“Can you imagine dragging a guy, he’s just tried to f–k you in the a**. Can you imagine dragging him to the river and throwing him in? And then finding out on the news the dude’s missing? You know the dude. And you know more than that. That f–king affected me bad, bro.”
While this explains the one time he made a man disappear, his post claims that this was the first time and not the only time he’s done so; implying he has done this at least once before. Also, a point that a lot of people seem to miss is that the post was dedicated to a woman named Winnie. Was this a threat? What was he trying to tell her through this story?
