The 60-year-old recalled: "This was the very first time I made a man disappear..."

The ex-pro wrestling star called in to the Boston Wrestling Sports show on Wednesday night - where he was questioned about a weird Facebook post in which he suggests he killed a guy and dumped the body in the Chattahoochee River sometime around 1973.

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.

"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 in the since-deleted post, according to Marc Middleton of Wrestling Inc.


Jannetty says the man tried to "rape" him behind a bowling alley and the man was known to lure little kids. He said that they went to a vehicle first, and this is when the man grabbed Jannetty's privates and asked "what's this?" 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.

Things very rapidly took an unexpected twist when the former Intercontinental Champion claimed he made a man who allegedly assaulted him behind a bowling alley "disappear".

We will keep you updated on this ongoing story. "They shoulda looked in the Chattahoochie River". Jannetty was born in February 1960, and would have turned 13 in 1973.

"I promised myself way back then, nobody would ever hurt me again. that includes you", he said, using derogatory language that referred to the nationality of the woman. Also, the Chattahoochee River does run through Columbus, and there are records of a Victory Lanes Family Bowling Center in Columbus.


A spokesperson from the Columbus Police Department's homicide and cold case division told TMZ Sports they will be looking into the matter.

NJ Advance Media has attempted to reach Jannetty for comment.
