WWE legend’s Facebook ‘murder confession’ prompts investigation

Georgia cops have launched an investigation after WWE legend Marty Jannetty, 60, appeared to post a murder confession on Facebook claiming he ‘made a man disappear’ when he was 13. 

Jannetty, who shot to fame as one half of the iconic ‘Rockers’ duo with Shawn Michaels in the 1980s, shared the disturbing anecdote of a drug deal gone wrong on social media early Wednesday. 

The troubled star, now 60, said the man was ‘never found’ and that ‘they shoulda looked in the Chattahoochee River.’ 

He also implied this was only the ‘first time’ he made someone ‘disappear’. 

‘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 to the back of the building… you already know what he was gonna try do do,’ wrote Jannetty.  

‘That was the very first time I made a man disappear… they never found him… they shoulda looked in the Chattahoochee River.’

Columbus Police Department told TMZ they have launched an investigation into the former wrestler’s confession.

‘We are going to look into this,’ a police spokesman told the outlet.

‘The first step will be seeing if we have any missing persons or unidentified remains cases that match the limited information in the post.’  

DailyMail.com has reached out to Columbus Police Department for comment. 

It is not clear whether Jannetty has been questioned by cops over the claims or if the events match up with any missing persons cold cases.

Based on Jannetty being 13, the incident would have taken place around 1973. 

In the shocking since-deleted post, the former wrestler revealed he had kept the incident secret for decades. 

‘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,’ Jannetty wrote.

The post also contained ramblings from the troubled star about a woman named Winnie who he blasted saying she ‘hurt me’ with her ‘f**ing Jamaican jealousy’.

‘Winnie (the girl in these pics) I likes you so damn much, probably my favorite.. but I promised myself way back then, nobody would ever hurt me again.. that includes you.. I loved you but you hurt me with your f**ing Jamaican jealousy.. you can go your own way, I don’t need you..’ the post read.   

This isn’t the first time Jannetty has sparked concerns among fans in the wrestling world. 

The self-confessed addict has been to rehab twice to battle his demons with drugs, alcohol and sex addiction. 

With his wrestling career waning, Jannetty first suffered a breakdown in 2004.

The following year he was arrested on a domestic disturbance charge and was released by the WWE.

His long-anticipated return to the company in 2007 was then thwarted when he failed a drug test.  

In 2016, Jannetty sued WWE for traumatic brain injury claiming he suffered brain trauma related to CTE during his wrestling career. The lawsuit was dismissed in 2018.

In 2017, Jannetty made another bizarre social media rant claiming a DNA test proved his daughter Bianca was not his biological daughter. 

In the disturbing post he called her ‘f***ing hott’ and asked if it was okay if they had sex.

Jannetty later said his Facebook account was hacked.

In June last year he shared another Facebook post saying he had been on a 60-day ‘drinking and f**ing’ bender since he stopped appearing on WrestleMania 35 in April. 

He posted a picture alongside the post of a woman he claimed was his sex addiction counselor and alleged he had had sex with her. 

‘You all know I play on here a lot, but I am about to be real,’ Jannetty wrote.
