Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope take the YouShoot oath!
YouShoot with Insane Clown Posse
This is the sort of YouShoot that isn’t going to be for everyone. I’m somewhat included in that group as well. I’ve always been the type who is primarily interested in the wrestling side of things, and the bulk of the discussion here is about ICP’s music career and other topics including the Gathering of the Juggalos, and lots of the “wrestling sleaze” sort of stuff. However, I did find out a few surprising things: Both Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope are actually fully trained wrestlers, and did it years before their music career took off. They talk a bit about working the Detroit indy scene, and the locker room was pretty much made up of them, RVD, and a bunch of hairy and out of shape guys. They also talk about their brief runs everywhere they’ve worked, but it doesn’t really bother them, since they’ve made so much coin off of their music, that doing wrestling was more or less just for kicks anyway. J makes sure let everyone know that Shaggy is actually very good in the ring. There was a plan, at one point, for WCW to put the Cruiserweight Title on Shaggy, which most people scoff at, but J assures everyone that Shaggy can go.
While this won’t be the most fascinating shoot interview you’ll ever see, it is pretty damn entertaining, because the Clowns are both funny, and even Sean has a knack for knowing when to jump in with a comment or remark and make it even more funny. An example is when they’re talking about rats, and J mentions one rat who was going on and on about Buff Bagwell. Sean comments that, when J disrobed, she didn’t see Buff. J: More like “Adorable” Adrian Adonis! Shagg follows with the story of him being with a rat, while Buff was next door with the rat's mother. The usual YouShoot games are included, with some funny answers. When Sean pulls out the huge dildo, Shaggy wins the game forever with his answer, “Missy Hyatt.” They tell the story of when they first met Steve Austin, he sat down and tried to talk to them, and found out they had nothing in common. They like gangsta rap and he likes Lynard Skynard. He likes to hunt, and J wouldn’t know how to kill a deer even if he had an axe.
The only other part that I really found interesting to watch was when Sean would show them clips of other interviews where people had talked about them. The best ones being Kevin Nash’s story about riding with them in the desert and them getting to piss, which Shaggy says is a total lie. They flew into AZ for the show and only saw Nash to say hello. “He’s a cool dude, but he lied.” The other good one is from Russo’s WCW Timeline, when he talks about ICP always pulling disappearing acts, and him having to rewrite the show. Once again, ICP have no idea what he’s talking about. This is another time that Sean’s comedic timing pays off, when he exclaims that it’s ICP’s fault that WCW had to close, because of all the re-writing they had to do when ICP disappeared. The only one that seems to really have an effect on them is a quote from the late John Tenta, who says that they were only out for themselves, and didn’t care about the business or the boys, and they seem genuinely upset to hear it.
Again, I’ve always been about the wrestling, so this wasn’t great for me. But, if you’re a big fan of ICP and interested in hearing things about Psychopathic records, JCW, and the Gathering of the Juggalos (although, at least the Bronies have replaced Juggalos as the most hated fanboys), and other non-wrestling things, then you’ll definitely want to get this.
The 411: If you want a bunch of laughs, then this is hard to steer clear of, and it's certainly not bad at all.
