Pro wrestling is full of stories, and some of them don’t paint those involved in the best light. Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty are legends, but that doesn’t mean they made the best decisions all the time.

Halcion is a drug that pro wrestlers used to have around, but they were not taken for a purpose that really holds the test of time. The drug is a sedative, and some used it to have their way with women. Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty allegedly did just that.

In an older shoot interview that recently surfaced on Reddit’s Squared Circle, Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake discusses halcion and highlighted The Rockers’ apparent fondness for it. He also accused them of using that drug on women for their personal conquests.

“Listen, the Rockers loved those halcions, man. They freakin — boom — they’d drop them on all the broads, and then they’d get them back to their room, and they’d pass out and then they would take the laundry off, and they’d have a good time with them; and then throw them out in the hallway and sh*t naked. Yeah, so needless to say, they got in trouble in a few hotels.”


Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty have not responded to the original clip, nor have they answered to it resurfacing. Mary Jannetty did post slew of off-the-wall social media posts throughout his life, but he never addressed that allegation directly.

Mr. Perfect also utilized halcion pills, known as H-Bombs for some, in drinks to affect individuals on that Plane Ride From Hell. Since halcion is a sedative with potential adverse effects, including the promotion of paranoid or suicidal thoughts and the impairment of memory, judgment, and coordination, it only added to the chaos. When combined with other substances, especially alcohol, it can slow breathing and may result in fatal consequences.

We’ll have to see if any more stories come out that legends of the squared circle would rather keep under lock and key. For more updates on this story, and so many more, please stay tuned with us here at Ringside News.
