Marty Jannetty’s fall from grace is well documented and he lives a very troubling lifestyle as he is spiralling down due to his self-destructive tendencies. He apparently requires surgery, but as he cannot afford it, he will keep medicating himself with alcohol in the meantime.
Jannetty and Shawn Michaels started in WWE together as the very popular tag team, The Rockers. Even if they no longer keep in touch, that does not mean HBK does not care about his former partner.
Miachels recently spoke to Challenge Mania. There, he admitted that he does not even have Jannetty’s contact number anymore. He revealed that he is heartbroken about Jannetty’s lifestyle.
“I no longer have a contact number for him. There are times I see him, he is great, he seems great. Other times it’s less so. It heartbreaking to me, just as it is to everyone else. I don’t know what any of us can do in that aspect. He has made a decision on how he wants to live his life. Truth be told, it’s not my place or anyone else’s to tell him how. All we can do is care about him when it’s not going well, care for him.”
We hope that Marty Jannetty eventually gets his life together and can make a recovery.
