In case anyone would like to listen to a really interesting and funny interview from one of the "classic" wrestlers of the WWF, that being Marty Jannetty former tag team partner of Shawn Michaels in The Rockers...click on the link below if you have two hours to kill or so if you're bored or just surfing around.
I listened to it last nite and its definatley worth checking out if you have been a fan of wrestling for at least 15 years. Jannety even discusses rare topics and rumors like Jim Niedhardt riging the ropes to fail during the infamous Rockers title win. Also reveals Shane Douglas played Shaun Michaels character a few times at house shows while Shawn was out with an ankle injury. The most fascinating thing too was that there exist bootleg video's of the Rockers wrestling at house shows with the tag titles defending them 2wice before they were stripped of them. Cool interview, listen to it.
I've always wanted to hear a Jannetty shoot, and it's one of the best damn shoots I've heard, if not the best. The part about the Biker on the plane was classic, so were the old Iron Sheik stories.
What's amazing, is for all the negative stuff I've heard about HBK from guys like Bret Hart and Shane Douglas, none of them paint a negative picture of the man as Jannetty did. I won't ruin for anyone who hasn't heard it, but as for the RR93 Story (if true), someone would have to restrain me from shooting the man if I were in Marty's shoes.
Originally posted by chad-wicki saw the interview and to me he doesnt look real good.i wish he would come back and cost HBK the title at backlash and restart their feud,that would be mad awesome!
I bet if Jannety did come back and re-fued with Shawn, it would be the most bizzare thing since Roddy Pipers stomach from last year. Didnt Jannety wrestle Shawn once for the championship when Janety was teaming with Snow?
If it'd been Hogan, they probably would've done it. They could've setup Hogan/Lesnar III at the Rumble. If it'd been Benoit, maybe they wouldn't have. Vince generally won't push the "little" guys until he runs out of big guys to push.
