• Marty Jannetty Intoxicated During Watch-Along Live Stream For Hell In A Cell 2021
According to MWF Boston Wrestling promoter Dan Mirade, WWF Veteran Marty Jannetty was intoxicated and unable to perform during their watch-along live stream for the WWE Hell in a Cell 2021 PPV this past Sunday.
Here’s what was posted on the official MWF Facebook page:
“MARTY JANNETTY STATEMENT
For those of you that watched our #HIAC Watch Along…. there are almost no more words that need to be spoken.
On Friday and Saturday, we had two great, fantastic days with Marty. He was engaged in the process and we recorded some great interviews for you guys to enjoy this summer.
And then there was Sunday.
Keep in mind that the man has had two major ankle surgeries this year and is in a lot of physical pain. Living with CRPS, I can feel his pain.
Yesterday, “unable to perform” would be kind as we wound up wasting over four hours trying to sober Marty up. The interviews we produced were decent before the live episode.
As we took a break to prepare to go live, Marty vanished. I had no idea if he was coming back as he left his phone at the hotel. Appears he went to the adult beverage store, and things declined at a rapid rate on the live episode.
Again, keeping in mind the amount of pain he’s in and the stress he’s under with his current living conditions while trying to get back to full health, I tried to be patient, but a few comments crossed the line and I had enough. I can’t ever remember being that angry on one of our programs but after 8+ hours of this, I was done. We also had no studio help at night, between it being Fathers Day, people that left seeing the condition he was in, and past experiences with him not being in the best of conditions.
It was an embarrassment and a disgrace. At the end of the day, he’s still a good human being that’s in a very bad place.
I awoke to his JetBlue itinerary being cancelled which set off even more worry about where he was, but was informed by Delta he changed his flight to later in the afternoon and I’m guessing he’s made it back to Atlanta as of this writing.
We invest a lot of time, effort, energy and money into producing interesting, historical content for wrestling fans around the world. Marty has a lot to offer, but not after what we saw last night.
I apologize to any fan that watched as it certainly was not our intention for what should have been a fun night to go downhill so quickly. I care about the human being and want him to get better.”
Marty wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation from 1988 until 1996 and later returned to the now renamed WWE several times, including appearances in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2009.
