An apparent murder confession by former WWE star Marty Jannetty is prompting cops in Georgia to launch an investigation, according to a report. The former intercontinental and tag team champ who rose to stardom as part of "The Rockers" duo with Shawn Michaels in the late 1980s and early '90s said he "made a man disappear" in a since-deleted Facebook post early Wednesday, TMZ reports. "That was the very first time I made a man disappear," the post continued. Jannetty is a native of Columbus, Georgia, and attended Chattahoochee Valley Community College in Phenix City, Alabama, according to his Facebook profile. The river Jannetty mentioned in his post, which forms the southern half of the Alabama-Georgia border, runs through Columbus, where cops have since launched an investigation into his purported confession, TMZ reports.
In fact, a spokesperson from the homicide/cold case division told us, "The first step will be seeing if we have any missing persons or unidentified remains cases that match the limited information in the post." Marty Jannetty frequently makes outlandish claims on social media, but he's now being investigated by police after saying that he killed a man when he was thirteen years old. Yesterday, former WWE Superstar Marty Jannetty made headlines after he took to Facebook to talk about the "very first time" that he "made a man disappear." That's now been deleted, but the gist of it was that when he was thirteen, he worked at a bowling alley and bought some marijuana from a "f*g that worked there." Jannetty went on to say that, "he put his hands on me..he dragged me around to 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." So, yeah, he's basically saying he killed a man and dumped his body in a river. This alleged incident would have taken place around 1973 in Columbus, Georgia, and following Jannetty's claims, the police are now investigating. According to TMZ, even though the city's police department is busy with active homicide investigations, "the first step will be seeing if we have any missing persons or unidentified remains cases that match the limited information in the post." Best known for being part of The Rockers with Shawn Michaels, this could be another bogus claims from Jannetty, but if not, things could get interesting. Former wrestling star Marty Jannetty appears to have admitted to making a man "disappear" in a disturbing Facebook post. The former WWE star claimed the incident took place when he worked at a bowling alley, aged 13. Jannetty, now 60, shared the concerning story, which has since been deleted, to his social media page. According to RingsideNews, the post read: "I never told no one this, even my brother Geno … cause Geno would've killed him, and I didn't want my brother gone. "He put his hands on me … he dragged me around to the back of the building … you already know what he was gonna try to do. "They never found him … they should of looked in the Chattahoochee River … but Winnie [the girl in these pics] I like you so damn much, probably my favourite. Jannetty did not immediately return The Sun's request for comment about his now-deleted Facebook post. But according to TMZ, the Columbia Police Department in Georgia said they are going to "look into this." In 2018, Jannetty claimed his life was almost destroyed when his Facebook page was hacked.
