Although Marty Jannetty said that WWE is working on resolving his legal issues, sources within WWE say that there are absolutely no plans to bring the wrestler back to television.

Following his legal trouble last year, Jannetty was placed on house arrest until 2007. Nonetheless, WWE decided to bring him in for the Michaels-Vince storyline and reportedly got him a pass to work one day a week.

Jannetty, however, ran into some sort of problem with a urine test (not necessarily a positive test for a substance), and it became clear that WWE would not be able to use him on the 3/6 edition of RAW. Thus, the company announced its decision to part ways with the wrestler.

Creative was told that it has no obligation to create a storyline opening for Jannetty to return at a future date.

Jannetty’s involvement in the storyline likely would have culminated with the wrestler turning on Shawn Michaels.
