Marty Jannetty Recalls the Barber Shop Window Incident

Jan 19, 2019 - by Steve Gerweck

Marty Jannetty spoke with Sports Illustrated for a new interview looking back on his famous Barbershop angle with Shawn Michaels, plus more. Highlights are below:

On the angle still being memorable: “I was hoping that moment would last six months, let alone 27 years. I can’t believe it’s been so long. I think one of the main reasons that the Barber Shop window moment has lasted 27 years is that it looked real enough to believe it was real. I wouldn’t want to change that…And in 20 years, they’ll still be showing the clip of the Rockers breaking up. What else will stand that kind of test of time?”

On potentially being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame one day: “I would be grateful for that opportunity. I would be honored. That makes a big difference in the wrestling world.”
