“I was 13, working at Victory Lanes bowling alley buying weed from a f** that worked there,” the post states. “…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..”
“That was the first time I made a man disappear.. they never found him.. they should have looked in the Chattahoochie river.”
He then goes on to apparently threaten a woman pictured in the post.
The Columbus Police Department in Georgia has told TMZ that they are looking into the claim. A spokesperson for the homicide/cold case division said: “The first step will be seeing if we have any missing persons or unidentified remains cases that match the limited information in the post.”
The spokesperson continued, stating that they have “several current active homicide investigations underway and they will have to remain the priority.”
Marty Jannetty is most famous as being one part of the tag team The Rockers with WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels. They enjoyed great success during the 1980s, but split up in 1992 in one of WWE’s most famous segments of the era.
Shawn Michaels would go to be one of the most famous singles wrestlers of his generation, but Jannetty suffered many real-life personal troubles following The Rocker’s split. He would continue to wrestle for companies including WWE and ECW, but never reaching The Rockers’ level of success again.
In 2016, he was named as part of a class action lawsuit against WWE, in relation to brain injuries suffered whilst working for the company. The case was dismissed in 2018.
