" I have never told anyone this, not even my brother Geno, because he would have killed him and did not want my brother to leave. Hell, he had recently returned home from Vietnam," began the unexpected and chilling confession of former WWE intercontinental champion Marty Jannetty.
In a post on his Facebook account, which, when quickly gone viral, he decided to erase, acknowledged being the perpetrator of a man's murder in 1973. "I was only 13, I was in an alley buying weed from a bastard who worked there. he laid his hands on me. He dragged me to the back of the building, you know what I was going to try to do ...

" This was the first time I had a man disappear. They never found him. They should have searched the Chattahoochee River," added former Shawn Michaels' partner, with whom he formed the duo The Rockers, a famous couple between the 80s and 90s. As reported TMZ, the Columbus Police Department in the state of Georgia began an investigation into the content of this message.
Faced with the huge uproar, Jannetty, 60, spoke with Boston Wrestling Sports. The former sportsman claimed that his assailant tried to rape him inside a car. "He was known for selling weed. What I didn't know was that he was attracted to young children," he outlined.
Marty claimed they went first to a car, and that's when his assailant grabbed his intimate parts. When he tried to escape, he fastened his hair and shirt, dragging him to the back of the alley. "When I hit him on the head with a brick I was just trying to teach him a lesson, but he wasn't trying to kill him," he confessed.

"Can you imagine dragging a guy who was just trying to rape you? Can you imagine dragging him into the river and throwing him, and then you hear that guy's gone? All this affected me a lot," he concluded.
According to a spokesman for the homicide and unsolved cases division, he explained to TMZ that "the first step will be to see if we have missing persons cases or unidentified remains that match this information."
It's worth noting that this isn't the first time Marty Jannetty has been caught up in the middle of a controversy. In 2017, also by posting to his Facebook account, he wrote about his desire to have sex with a person who was supposed to be his daughter: "If you love me as much as I love you, you will give me your opinion. I just made the DNA and she's not my daughter. We've both refrained from having sex, because you don't do that with your family... But now we're not. From a manly point of view, she is very sexy, but at least for a while, she has been like my daughter... I'd like us to do it, but I can't take that thought away from my mind." He then explained that his account had been hacked.
