Marty Jannetty started trending on Twitter on Wednesday after the former WWE Superstar took to Facebook and posted a disturbing message, one in which he claimed to have made a man "disappear" back in 1973. The post has since been deleted, though screenshots have continued to circulate online. Jannetty wrote, "I never told no one this, even my brother Geno..cause Geno would've killed him, and I didn't want my brother gone,,hell he'd only recently came home from Viet Name..I was 13, working at Victory lanes bowling alley buying weed from a f— that worked there..and he put his hands on me..he dragged me around to the back of the building..you already know what he was gonna try to do.
"That was the very first time I made a man disappear..they never found him..they should looked in the Chattahoochie River," the post continued, before Jannetty turned his attention to a woman named "Winnie" that he claimed to have a falling out with

A commenter asked if Jannetty was okay, and he responded by bringing up the supposed killing again.
"Yes, that was a billion years ago. Plus, I have the satisfaction of knowing that B— a— n— never got to do another kid like that," Jannetty wrote.

The former Intercontinental and Tag Team Champion has made headlines in recent years for other controversial Facebook posts.
Fans were shocked by the sudden supposed revelation.
