Former WWE superstar and Shawn Michaels “The Rockers” Tag Team partner Marty Jannetty shocked the wrestling community with a now-deleted Facebook post where he admits to killing a drug dealer that tried to sexually abuse him when he was thirteen years old. Following the revelation, the LGBT media ran headlines accusing Jannetty of killing a gay man and omitting parts of the post that explained the attempted abuse.
TMZ recovered a now-deleted Facebook post where the former superstar confessed to killing a man who used to sell him marijuana, triggering a police investigation into the claims.
Jannetty, 60, wrote about how a bowling alley employee attempted to abuse him at thirteen years old, putting the year of the incident around 1973.
The former WWE star begins the post by saying: “I never told no one this, even my brother Geno… cause Geno would’ve killed him, and I didn’t want my brother gone, hell he’d only recently came home from Viet Nam [sic].”
“I was 13, working at Victory Lanes bowling alley buying weed from a f** that worked there … and he put his hands on me,” Jannetty explained. “He dragged me around the back of the building … you already know what he was gonna try to do.”
“That was the very first time I made a man disappear. They never found him. They shoulda looked in the Chattahoochie River,” Jannetty added.
The post became subject of investigation, although, given the length of time to elapse between the alleged murder and now, police have graded the investigation as a low priority.
Since the post became a media sensation, the LGBT media ran headlines such as ‘Ex-WWE star Marty Jannetty confesses to murdering a gay man,’ ‘Former WWE Wrestler Confesses To Murdering A Gay Man,’ ‘Former WWE pro-wrestler confesses to murdering a gay man,’ and ‘Former WWE wrestler confesses to murdering a gay man.’
The 60 year old said when he was 13 an adult man tried to molest him and he killed the man and dumped his body.
