Update on WrestleMania 28 PPV Buys, Jannetty In Bad Shape, HBK Filming

– Former WWE star Marty Jannetty is said to be in really bad shape these days. Jannetty worked an independent show in Orlando on July 28th against Steve Corino and his ankles were so bad that his feet turn out sideways and the inside of his ankles almost touch the ground when he walks. He needs surgery on both ankles in the worst way. Jannetty then no-showed the Chikara show the next night in Massachusetts.

– WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels begins filming the third season of his MacMillan River Adventures TV show today.

– The latest information released by WWE indicates that WrestleMania 28 is now back up to the estimated 1,216,000 worldwide pay-per-view buys. This is up from the 1,114,000 buys that the show was listed doing as of one month ago. The new number breaks down to 713,000 domestic buys and 503,000 international buys. We should know more after today’s earnings call.

    I worked with Janetty today, and this is highly exaggerated. His ankles are bad, he’s definitely in pain, but he can still move, and the thing about them touching the ground is nonsense. Good speed still, and very easy to work with.

  • @ scooter I was at a 1pw ppv 5 years ago and met Corino he was champion went against abyss , had word he died 2 years after n didn’t hear out from him for ages and 1pw went out of business it’s good to see him still alive n well and wrestling in the best place on earth Florida

    Damn, this is pretty fuckin’ sad. The Rockers along with L.O.D(thank you WrestleFest!) are the first two tag teams I really loved as a kid. HBK hunts and makes appearances every now and then, Marty is just…..hurting. Both are legends in my book, but get well Marty.

    Funny how they mention jannety and michaels in the same article. Michaels is retired filming a tv show and jannety should be retired but is still out there working the indys. Sad how their paths differed

    Well this isn’t good news, Janetty is scheduled to wrestle at the show I’m going to tomorrow.

    @ skitzo yeah i’m with you

  • scooter

    Shauny I’m guessing your thinking of Chris Candido.

    Shauny, you’re thinking of Chris Candido.

    I really feel bad for Jannetty. He was always one of my favorite wrestlers, and if his ankles are in that bad of shape, someone should step up and help this guy out so he can get the surgery he needs. I know he has voiced his opinion on this matter in the past to the WWE, and they have not offered any help. That is pathetic in my opinion. Maybe we could start a movement on facebook to help him. He has entertained the public for many years. I think the least we could do is show him some gratitude for sacrificing his body for our entertainment. Who’s with me?

  • Seriously thought corino was dead?
