Seems interesting that they are bringing on a releases superstar to discuss his real-life problems. Makes me wonder if we'll be seeing him return, perhaps at SummerSlam to cost HBK his match (since there's no way Hogan's doing the job).
Originally posted by SOKWas the use of his mugshot really necessary, though? I mean, they have great shots of him when he returned for the Rockers Reunion and his match against Angle...why use that one?
Cause it's the WWE. They LOVE contraversy. Plus it's just media strategy in general, more people will tune in to hear "marty the ex-wwe wrestler talk about his problems with the law" than simply "marty the ex-wwe wrestler". Whether or not he's actually going to spend much, if any, time on his problems is irrelevant, it's just getting people to tune in in the first place that's important.
I listened to it, and there was nothing that really stood out. Same ol' stuff he's said in other interviews. Basically, he was about to commit suicide and Shawn Michaels called him out of the blue to come down to Azizona for a Christian sportsfest. Jannetty went down and Michaels personally baptized him. Jannety brought up a Rockers reunion and Shawn pitched it and got it. Everyone was impressed by Jannety's in ring work in March. Janetty had a suspended licence for 5 years and violated it, getting arrested. He is looking foward to coming back (and likely will).
Looks like they're going with a different angle, attacking the independent contractor classification, so perhaps it will go further than other lawsuits. Personally, I'd love to see this one go against Vince.
