Former WWF Rocker Marty Jannetty Hearts Black Crown Initiate

  • Axl Rosenberg

If you were a WWF fan in the late 80s or early 90s, chances are you remember the tag team duo known as The Rockers. If you don’t remember them or weren’t a fan, here’s a promo photo of them in their heyday, wearing what I think we can all agree are pretty much the best costumes ever:The Rockers 1991The handsome, mulleted brunette on the left (as opposed to the handsome, mulleted blonde on the right) is named Marty Janetty, and he was a hero to many a young WWF fan back in the day. So you can imagine our excitement when we saw these photos of Janetty chillin’ with one of our favorite young metal bands, Black Crown Initiate… and wearing their merch to boot:

Turns out Janetty is the stepfather of the band’s sound dude, Alex Kendrick. So his enthusiasm for the band may have as much to do with supporting family as it does their music. But maybe not! I personally like to envision Janetty sitting by the fire with a warm cup of hot cocoa, headbanging to The Wreckage of Stars. Isn’t that a nice image?
