The “Breaking Kayfabe” series has drawn an amazing array of names who have shared stories of drugs, sex, mental & physical abuse and suicide attempts. The hour is a super tense situation, so much that Jake Roberts told Kayfabe Commentaries to shut down his episode because he didn’t want to deal with his past. The new edition features former WWE/AWA superstar MARTY JANNETTY.
During the 1980’s and early 1990’s Marty was part of the Midnight Rockers with WWE Hall of Fame member Shawn Michaels. When the duo arrived in WWF the Midnight was dropped but their party attitude from the AWA followed them. During the 1 hour and 12 minutes Marty will cover that and tons more. Do not blink once because you will miss lots of stuff.
Host SEAN OLIVER has been across the table from Tammy Sytch, Sean Waltman, Jerome Young & Lanny Poffo. None of them were as scattershot and possibly inebriated (I can’t prove it) as Jannetty. I stopped the show a couple of times just to catch my breath as Jannetty talks about partying with Michaels, his demons, drugs, alcohol, a sex addiction, working for the WWF and his numerous exits plus how the “Barber Shop” split was possibly a conspiracy between Michaels and the office. I do feel sorry for Jannetty in the essence of his body injuries (do not look at his ankle, it will gross you out) not being cared for by WWE but they would help him with his addiction to medications he is taking to mask the pain from the injury.
It will be interesting to see who Kayfabe Commentaries tops Jannetty with because he is the perfect guest for this format. Next on the release calendar are the following: November 5th is Wrestling’s Most Despised and November 26th is a Hall of Fame Signature Edition release of Timeline History of the WWE with Bruno Sammartino who covers the Sixties. The www.KayfabeCommentaries.com site also has a link to submit YouShoot questions for the infamous Insane Clown Posse before October 31st.
