Petition Has Been Started To Get ICP Into WWE HOF
With WWE Wrestlemania 35 right around the corner, lots of names have been released over the past few weeks of former wrestlers who will be inducted into the World Wrestling Entertainment's Hall Of Fame. Every year, the WWE also adds one celebrity or celebrities to the celebrity wing of the Hall Of Fame. Celebrities who have already made it in include Romeo, MI musician Kid Rock, Snoop Dogg, actor Drew Carey, and baseball's Pete Rose. One thing about this bugs me, none of those guys are wrestlers. Meanwhile Detroit rappers Violent J & Shaggy 2 Dope of Insane Clown Posse consistently get passed because of past issues between the group and WWE.
The Insane Clown Posse are not only trained professional wrestlers, but have appeared and worked in WWE, WCW, and their own federation, Juggalo Championship Wrestling (JCW). I've been down with the clown since 97', which for normal people means I've been a fan of ICP for a long time. Not only did they wrestle in WWE, but also produced and performed entrance music for multiple wrestlers while in agreement with WWE. They did all of their work with WWE for free in exchange for promotion for their new album at the time, The Amazing Jeckel Brothers, which they allegedly did not receive. They were never under contract and left after WWE failed to keep their end of the deal. Every year they have been snubbed from their rightful place in the WWE HOF. One petition has been started on Facebook on the page, ICP Belongs In WWE Hall Of Fame to encourage fans to bring signs to WWE shows stating, "ICP 4 HOF" and to contact WWE at their corporate office. I fully support this cause because ICP brought a lot to the "Attitude Era" and they're actual wrestlers. I don't wanna see someone who performed a song once during a show get in anymore. Do the right thing WWE.
