Next Tuesday, the Insane Clown Posse will appear at the IWA East Coast Wrestling show, Psychopathic Tendencies, at South Charleston Community Center. This is going to be a wild night, as ICP’s faithful followers will gather to see their favorite horrorcore rap band charge into the squared circle. Despite being voted “worst band in the world” by several magazines, ICP has a rabid following, and their fan’s devotion is legendary.
At the last IWA East Coast show in September, ICP’s Violent J came to the rescue of Rude Boy, who had been brutally attacked by hardcore legend, Sabu. This was a huge surprise, since ICP is a nationally-known entity, and to see an unadvertised run-in by one of them was quite a shock.
However, after Violent J ran off Sabu, Rude Boy (a longtime associate of the Insane Clown Posse and their own JCW Wrestling federation) shocked the crowd by turning on his ally, beating on him and challenging him to a cage match. To make things even more surreal, he asked that Violent J’s partner in ICP, Shaggy 2 Dope, be the special referee.
So, next Tuesday night, Juggalos (diehard ICP fans) from all over the country will congregate at the South Charleston Community Center to see how this drama will play out. Will Shaggy 2 Dope be an impartial referee, or will he favor his partner? Heck, Shaggy may even turn on Violent J and break up the band. We’ll just have to see what happens.
In addition to the Insane Clown Posse, IWA East Coast will present a full card of their finest mayhem, with Mad Man Pondo and 2 Tuff Tony taking on “Mr. Insanity” Toby Klien and Necrobutcher in what promises to be a tag team bloodbath. El Drunko challenges Chris Hero for the IWA Heavyweight belt. Plus we’ll be treated to matches featuring IWA mainstays The Juggulator, War Pig and Dr. Max Graves, Trik Nasty, Mickie Knuckles, Ruckus, and more.
Juggalos are stridently loyal and follow the ICP with an almost-religious fervor. This will probably be the largest crowd ever at an ICP show, and from what I hear, ringside tickets are nearly sold out. It’s going to be a memorable evening. When it’s done, there should be blood, sweat, and Faygo everywhere.
