Ex-WWE superstar Marty Jannetty may have confessed to murdering someone when he was 13 years old in a bizarre social media post in Facebook.
The former WWE member and and Intercontinental Champion told a story on Facebook about trying to buy weed from a man who worked at a bowling alley in his home town when things went a little sketchy. Based on this post, the incident would have taken place around 1973.
“I was 13, working at Victory Lanes bowling alley buying weed from a f** that worked there … and he put his hands on me … he dragged me around the back of the building … you already know what he was gonna try to do.”
Jannetty continued, “That was the very first time I made a man disappear. They never found him. They shoulda looked in the Chattahoochie River.”
The Columbus Police Department in Georgia is now investigating the matter, telling TMZ “We are going to look into this.”
The former tag team legend has a history of troubling (NSFW) posts on social media. Jannetty himself has speculated possible brain trauma related to CTE. He joined a class-action lawsuit against WWE alleging traumatic brain injury:
The troubled star has been to rehab twice. Last year shared a Facebook post saying he had been on a 60-day ‘drinking and f**ing’ bender.
Jannetty is best known for being part of the legendary ‘Rockers’ tag team in the late 1980s and early 90s. His legacy will always be tied to the contrasting career paths of him and Hall of Fame former “Rockers” tag team partner Shawn Michaels posted the confession on Facebook on Wednesday.
The duo was one of the top teams before they split in 1992 and Michaels went on to further stardom while Jannetty’s fortunes spiraled.
