Former WWE superstar Marty Jannetty gave a bizarre explanation after seemingly confessing to killing a man 47 years ago.
Speaking via phone to the Boston Wrestling Sports show, he said he used a brick to fend off a rapist.
Jannetty had previously shared a Facebook post, where he suggested, in 1973, killed a guy and dumped the body in the Chattahoochee River.
He said he had to defend himself after a male bowling alley employee allegedly tried to rape him.
He explained that the man tried to grab his genitals and, despite a physical confrontation, he couldn’t escape.
The 60-year-old said he fought back and grabbed a brick, which he used to hit his attacker.
“He was a front desk clerk… He was known to sell the weed. What I didn’t know was he lured in little kids,” said Jannetty, as quoted by TMZ Sports.
“I can’t say he deserved to die, but he deserved to get his ass beat.”
“And, when I was beating him in the head with a brick, I was only trying to beat his ass, I wasn’t trying to kill him.”
Rather bizarrely, the ex-pro wrestler disclosed that he dragged the body and dumped it into a river.
“Can you imagine dragging a guy — he’s just tried to f*** you in the ass — can you imagine dragging him to the river and throwing him in?
“And, then finding out on the news the dude’s missing. You know the dude. And, you know more than that. That affected me bad, bro,” Jannetty added.
Meanwhile, the Columbus Police Dept. in Georgia has launched an investigation into the alleged murder.
