Marty Jannetty was one of the most popular tag team wrestlers of the 1980s and 90s. Shawn Michaels and Marty formed the Rockers, one of the biggest draws in the division spanning both the AWA and WWE. Marty continued to wrestle for years, sometimes returning for nostalgia runs or as a midcard or enhancement talent.

Jannetty became a sensation on social media, but all for the wrong reasons. In fact, his past exploits have gained him infamy. On top of that, he also has a plethora of health issues to deal with.

Jannetty has been battling ankle issues throughout his wrestling career. He took to Facebook and talked about his problems with his ankles over the years, revealing that he is currently hospitalized.

“I’m very proud to say that ankle right there it’s just slightly damaged from all them years of putting my foot in people’s rear end, otherwise called ass and jumping off top ropes to the floor not just into the ring but to the floor and I’m very proud to say I’ll do it again right now I ain’t scared well wait a minute swaggy just looked at me and extended is claws which means don’t you even try oh well it was a fun thought.”


During his time in WWE, he won the Tag Team Titles with Sean Waltman and the Intercontinental Title. Jannetty has not competed in the ring since 2018. We wish Jannetty a speedy recovery.
