I started watching back in 92/93 time frame when El Matador , the Rockers, Hi Energy etc were bringing the quality, hi-flying wrestling entertainment. Without accesss to the internet, I never figured out why he disappeared.

This week going thru the early CRZ recaps, I notice that he actually was brought back several times and kept getting thrown out. CRZ addresing the smarks of the day presumed that I as the reader know the backstory. I don't. What was the story?

15 years and a lifetime latter, coming back after he was long forgotten and on the brink of suicide when he got a chance at wrestling redemeption, he still blew it!

Surely one of the biggest tragedies that has not ended in a premature death right now in wrestling?

When I'm looking to catch up on the dirt behind wrestler X, I usually try wikipedia.org first. Having said that, here is the link to Marty's entry.

There's also onlineworldofwrestling.com, formerly known as obsessedwithwrestling.com, which has a comprehensive list of his matches here.

Finally, Marty has his own site, www.martyjannetty.net.



One of the Thirty-two (or maybe Thirty-four....)!

Jannetty is wrestling Doug Williams on a 1PW show sometime soon, I'm tempted to go just to see the legendary Rocker do his thing.

Marty was always as talented as Shawn ever was, but he let outside events basically sabotage his career. Every time you THINK he's gotten past all that, something comes up to bite him in the ass.

His match against Angle on Smackdown a couple of years ago was really really good, so you know he can still go. Growing up, he was always my favorite Rocker.

I'm gonna guess that it's because while Eric had to hone his diplomatic-skills while answering to Verne Gagne, Ted Turner, AOL suits, and the like, Vince hasn't really had to answer to anyone for a very long time.
