Jannetty suggests the man died - and that's when he tried to get rid of the body.
Jannetty, now 60, said that was "the very first time I made a man disappear".
Jannetty was interviewed in the 2012 Star-Ledger documentary "The Bottom Rope: Inside the World of Independent Wrestling". He talked about making the transition from wrestling at Madison Square Garden in the '80s to making appearances at small shows in the independent wrestling circuit later in his career. Although the post is said to have been deleted, screenshots are easy to find on social media.
Jannetty was famously thrown through the Barber Shop window in the early '90s, signifying the end of The Rockers and the rise of Shawn Michaels. When asked how he got away from his attacker, Jannetty said he "probably [doesn't] need to say this but there was a brick laying there".
"I was 13", he continued.
The man then allegedly dragged Jannetty behind the bowling alley and tried to pull his trousers down. But when he attempted to flee, he was grabbed by the hair and shirt, and dragged to the back of the building where the dude attempted to rape him. Jannetty said. "It was the right thing in that moment, I don't know how else you handle it". "They shoulda looked in the Chattahoochie River".
Based on Jannetty's claim that he was 13 at the time of the alleged incident, this would place it around 1973.
"What I said on my Facebook post, because I don't want to lie about nothing-what do you do when you're 13?" Also, the Chattahoochee River does run through Columbus, and there are records of a Victory Lanes Family Bowling Center in Columbus. The police have stated that "we are going to look into this".
Several outlets have reached out to Marty Jannetty for comment; though he's yet to release any statements on the matter.
