Deeper Dive: Marty Jannetty Got Burned

Yep. One half of The Rockers got burned worse than I did at the beach, when on this week’s RAW, Stephanie McMahon was giving out words of advice to Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose ahead of their Fastlane match. The advice, basically, was that everyone knows of his partner, but Marty? Not so much. So, don’t be like Marty.

Now, he hasn’t done much with WWE recently, and for good reason. But now? After what he posted Monday night? Unless his was part of an elaborate and seemingly tasteless plan, he won’t be getting an invite to a retro RAW any time soon, either.

I hate to break it to you, Marty, but you peaked with The Rockers. Your most famous on-screen act may very well have been getting Superkicked through the Barbershop set glass on air. I won’t go so far as to say that Shawn carried you, but hindsight being 20/20, he probably did. So it takes a pretty big pair of brass ones (again, unless this is all really planned) to say what was said. As in, implying that not all of the children Stephanie gave birth to, have Hunter as the father.

Now, if Stephanie had gone down a different path? Like, instead of reminding folks how Jannetty was Shawn’s sidekick, she opted to remind folks of the stories of Marty and girls on the road of, shall we say, questionable ages? Then the below-the-belt shot may have been more warranted.

But, she didn’t. So it was not.

Marty, many people liked you as a Rocker, and even afterwards in your various stints. If I had been in your seat last night, even if it was kind of a shot, I’d just be stoked at the mention and leave it at that. Talk about turning something into a negative…

Unless, of course, this is all part of some sick and twisted angle, in which case, look for another one of these (but I can’t imagine two WWE executives allowing the paternity of their children to become on-screen fodder…so…yeah.)

    Unnecessary for Marty to do that and unfair to Stephanie, HHH and their family. People are always going to question HHH’s motives with the McMahon family but come on, everyone knows the last thing you shouldn’t do is to involve children in a situation like this.

    Marty was part of the greatest tag team pairings in the 80s and both Shawn and Marty carried each other. Obviously Shawn wound up being a main eventer and deservingly so. If it wasn’t for Marty’s personal problems maybe Vince might have given him more opportunities as a singles wrestler. Like you said John, Marty should have taken it as a positive sign that he was mentioned on TV and not a negative sign.

    Marty for the HOF

    • Joseph Lisnow

      that would be wwe’s way of hinting at it.

  • Vance

    WWE would NEVER bring a child’s paternity into question for an angle(cough, cough, Rey Mysterio’s son, Dominick).

    • Bite Me You Loser

      Mark Henry & Mae Young’s hand baby?

      • Philip Hollett

        Kane’s rape baby with Lita. You know, the one Snitsky punted into the crowd.

      • Vance

        That was nasty. I remember that segment.

  • MEH

    When I first saw this promo I had no idea what was said as the audio levels were so low and then I noticed that Reigns and Ambrose were mumbling quite a bit and didn’t want to raise my volume as I was scared to wake my kids. I thought it was a shot at Marty without hearing the promo properly and had to rewind it. When I heard it again I didn’t take it as what I first thought. Steph only pointed out that Marty didn’t see it coming (the barber shop super kick and thrown in the window) and how Shawn went on to be successful from there just like Rollins done to them with the Shield. Marty went overboard with his reaction and should be happy that he was even remembered and mentioned in this current era.

  • Bite Me You Loser

    Remember how Stephanie shut down Paul Heyman a few years back when Heyman brought up her children during a promo?

  • Mean Dean

    That feeling Stephanie had

  • Bradley Patterson

    I love how this “article” is written to Marty like he is actually gonna read this

    • Joseph Lisnow

      what else is he doing?

      wrestling for TNA or GFW?
