Professional wrestling entertainment form that mimics contact sports

Professional wrestling is a form of performance art and entertainment that combines athletics with theatrical performance. It takes the form of events, held by touring companies, that mimic a title-match combat sport. The unique form of sport portrayed is fundamentally based on classical and "catch" wrestling, with modern additions of striking attacks, strength-based holds and throws and acrobatic maneuvers. Much of these derive from the influence of various international martial arts. An additional aspect of combat with improvised weaponry is sometimes included to varying degrees.

History

Background

Villainous wrestler Tracy Smothers debuted in the first season of Juggalo Championship Wrestling's internet wrestling show SlamTV! by cutting a series of promos in which he insulted the company, the owners (Insane Clown Posse), and the Juggalo fanbase. [1] It became a common gesture for him to hide behind the curtain and flip off the crowd prior to entering the ring. [1] He flaunted his PWU Hardcore Championship, which he proclaimed the only championship that he respected, while verbally abusing the fans on the mic. On occasion, Smothers would even get in physical altercations with fans. [1]

In professional wrestling, a heel is a wrestler who portrays a villain or a "bad guy" and acts as an antagonist to the faces, who are the heroic protagonist or "good guy" characters.

Tracy Smothers American professional wrestler

Tracy Stanton Smothers is an American professional wrestler. He is best known for his appearances with World Championship Wrestling, Smoky Mountain Wrestling, the World Wrestling Federation and Extreme Championship Wrestling.

Insane Clown Posse American hip hop musical group

Insane Clown Posse, often abbreviated as ICP, is an American hip hop duo composed of Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope. Founded in Detroit in 1989, Insane Clown Posse performs a style of hardcore hip hop known as horrorcore and is known for its elaborate live performances. The duo has earned two platinum and five gold albums. According to Nielsen SoundScan, the entire catalog of the group has sold 6.5 million units in the United States and Canada as of April 2007. The group has established a dedicated following called Juggalos numbering in the "tens of thousands".

Tracy ran rampant on JCW, having matches which mostly ended with him choking opponents out. Smothers mercilessly beat opponents by any means necessary, including fan favorites Nosawa and Zach Gowen, the latter being a one-legged wrestler whom Smothers knocked out with his PWU Hardcore Championship and proceeded to choke out before beating up both the referee and security. [1] In the sixth episode, during 2 Tuff Tony's match, Smothers attacked Tony and caused him to be carried out on a stretcher. [1] Just days before Tony's return on the eighth episode, Tracy Smothers was arrested (kayfabe) and dropped from the rest of the tour, leaving Tony and the JCW roster with no way to seek revenge. [1]

In professional wrestling, a face (babyface) is a heroic or a "good guy" wrestler, booked (scripted) by the promotion with the aim of being cheered by fans. Traditionally, they wrestle within the rules and avoid cheating while behaving positively towards the referee and the audience. Such characters are also referred to as "blue-eyes" in British wrestling and técnicos in lucha libre. The face character is portrayed as a hero relative to the heel wrestlers, who are analogous to villains. Not everything a face wrestler does must be heroic: faces need only to be cheered by the audience to be effective characters.

JCW Heavyweight Champion, and fan favorite, Corporal Robinson was scheduled to face Tracy Smothers at Evansville Invasion, but he first had to defend his title against tweener Scott Hall at Bloodymania . [2] Hall and Robinson wrestled with a mutual respect for each other. During the match, Hall acted in his signature cocky manner. He delivered pokes to the eyes, slaps to the head, and several homosexual mannerisms, all with a smile on his face. [2] Though the tactics normally result in boos from the crowd, after Robinson won the match, the fans cheered for both him and Hall.

The JCW Heavyweight Championship is a professional wrestling world heavyweight championship in Juggalo Championship Wrestling. It was established in 1999 at JCW's first show, the taping for the DVD JCW Volume 1, with Evil Dead winning a 20-man battle royal.

Adding Members

Kevin Nash and Scott Hall appeared as a team at Bloodymania II , both wearing jWo jerseys. Prior to their match, Nash proclaimed that he was a member of the Juggalo World Order. [6] That night, the duo defeated the Thomaselli Brothers.

On October 31, 2008, at the Hallowicked After Party in Detroit, the Juggalo World Order (Scott Hall, Shaggy 2 Dope, Violent J, and Corporal Robinson) interfered in the opening match, beating up both wrestlers as well as the referee. [7] Violent J got on the microphone and called 2 Tuff Tony down to the ring. He then asked 2 Tuff Tony to join the jWo, before Tony responded by explaining that he was a one man team. Mid sentence, Tony stopped and exclaimed, "Fuck That! I wanna roll with the jWo!" [7] Violent J then gave 2 Tuff Tony a Hallowicked version of the jWo jersey, before announcing him as an official member of the Juggalo World Order. [7]

At Bloodymania III, the Juggalo World Order (Corporal Robinson, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, Shaggy 2 Dope, and Violent J) was scheduled to face "Holy" Trent Acid and the Alter Boys (Tim, Tom, Terry, and Todd) in the main event. [8] However, Kevin Nash legitimately no-showed the event. [9] After Hall explained to the crowd that he and Nash had split, Sid Vicious was introduced as his replacement and as the newest member of the jWo. [9] During the end of their match, Diamond Dallas Page ran into the ring wearing a jWo jersey and hit Acid with the Diamond Cutter , allowing Violent J to get the pin.

On May 26, 2012 at JCW's Hatchet Attacks 2012 iPPV, the JWO made their return to JCW, represented by Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman. The duo would go on to defeat Mosh and Thrasher of the Headbangers.

Invasions

On the November 4 edition of the radio show "The Main Event", Scott Hall dared hosts Violent J, 2 Tuff Tony, and Corporal Robinson to "take [the Juggalo World Order] on the road" [7] by "invading" Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, World Wrestling Entertainment, and Ultimate Fighting Championship. [7]

On November 9, Scott Hall, Shaggy 2 Dope, Violent J, 2 Tuff Tony, and Corporal Robinson "invaded" TNA's PPV Turning Point by purchasing front row tickets to the event. They proceeded to promote their faction by flashing their jWo jerseys, which each member had on. [10] As the crowd grew rowdy from the appearance, TNA management became worried that the group may interfere in a match. [11] Backstage, many wrestlers were prepared for a fight with the group. [11] Samoa Joe personally feared that, due to his negative comments toward Scott Hall, the jWo would interfere in his match that night with Kevin Nash. [12] During his match, Sheik Abdul Bashir, friend of both 2 Tuff Tony and Corporal Robinson, spit outside of the ring onto Tony, resulting in Tony splashing beer in the ring. Afterwards, Bashir went ringside and slapped and shoved Robinson. TNA, not knowning the three were friends, saw this as a potentially volatile situation and decided to remove the Juggalo World Order from the building. [11]

Two days later, on the November 11 edition "The Main Event", Scott Hall expressed interest in a Ring Of Honor invasion, in addition to the previously mentioned UFC invasion. [11] The Juggalo World Order also showed interest in "invading" WWE at its 2009 Royal Rumble PPV (which happened in their hometown Detroit, Michigan), but were unable due to filming commitments for Big Money Rustlas in Los Angeles.
