Marty Jannetty in U-turn on murder confession and insists it was WWE storyline

Marty Jannetty has made a U-turn on his murder confession, insisting it was part of a WWE storyline.

The former wrestler appeared to suggest on Facebook last month that he had beaten a would-be sex attacker, who then disappeared, when he was just 13.

And the WWE legend went into even more detail about the incident in a radio interview, claiming he "beat a man in the head with a brick" and "threw him in the river".

But Jannetty has taken to Facebook again, this time making a U-turn on his outlandish claims.

Writing on the social media site, the 60-year-old said: “[sic] I DID NOT MURDER THAT MAN!!!

“It was just the beginning of a damn wrestling storyline..but OH MY GOD, OMG.. Didn't the WORLD buy it??!!

“I never knew it could be that easy..I mean, INSIDE EDITION(whom Im a fan of even though they slant/favor democrat), PEOPLE MAGAZINE, TMZ, FOX NEWS, that fake ass National Inquirer,..and ALL MAJOR NEWS OUTLETS WORLD WIDE jumped on this story..it got so hot I had to drop it..when my Columbus, Ga.

“Police Department got involved, I knew I had to drop it…or as my bruh Snoop Dogg says "drop it like its hot, drop it like its hot" lol..loves ya Snoopy..

“I even got pulled outta line at the Atlanta airport headed to Boston..my TSA security brothers mostly laughing and getting autographs n pics kept saying, ‘we sorry yo, we have to, you're red flagged, you'll be fine though, we gotcha back brother’ and they did. Thank y'all my brothers!!”

In his now-deleted social media post he said the river was the Chattahoochie on the Alabama and Georgia border – where the hall of famer grew up.

Internet sleuths have checked out the claims – with no known missing persons from that are or timeframe.

However Jannetty told the radio station last month: "He was a front desk clerk. He was known to sell the weed. What I didn't know was he lured in little kids."

Jannetty claimed that when he was trying to buy drugs in a car outside a bowling alley, the man "reached over and grabbed me down there."

Jannetty said last month: "He was a front desk clerk. He was known to sell the weed. What I didn't know was he lured in little kids."

Jannetty claimed that when he was trying to buy drugs in a car outside a bowling alley, the man "reached over and grabbed me down there."

Jannetty said the man's name was Bob and "people made fun of the guy because he was gay".

The former WWE star added that Bob had never touched him in that manner before but when the youngster attempted to leave his car the would-be attacker became angry.

According to Jannetty, Bob grabbed him by the shirt and hair and threw him to the ground.

Jannetty said he hit Bob with a brick when Bob tried to pull down his pants.

"I can't say he deserved to die, but he deserved to get his a** beat," the former Rockers star said.

"And, when I was beating him in the head with a brick, I was only trying to beat his a**, I wasn't trying to kill him.

"Can you imagine dragging a guy — he's just tried to f*** you in the a**, can you imagine dragging him to the river and throwing him in?

"And, then finding out on the news the dude's missing. You know the dude. And, you know more than that. That affected me bad, bro."
