Welcome to Seven Things, a list that will run weekly and consist of very eclectic topics. These are of my opinions and doesn’t express the views of others on WrestlingOnEarth.
When reading through one of our prior posts about the Unlikely Celebrity Wrestling Fans, I started to think about the best and the worst celebrities or use of them in wrestling. I wrote a top seven for both but decided to go with the positive list first. Here’s the 7 Best Celebrities In Wrestling.
7. Insane Clown Posse
Let me start off by saying I don’t like the I.C.P. I don’t understand the culture nor do I personally enjoy it but I have to be fair. The Insane Clown Posse has been all over the wrestling climate with runs in ECW, WWF, WCW, TNA and starting their own promotion Juggalo Championship Wrestling.
In WWF, they were with The Oddities and helped a group of terrible, goofy wrestlers get somewhat over with the crowd. One my favorite oddball wrestling memories is The Oddities vs. Kai En Tai at Summerslam 1999. Their performance to the ring had MSG, a crowd known for shitting on things they dislike, waiving their hands in the air and cheering on.
On the flip side in WCW, they wrestled more matches and actually kind of held their own. A few matches teaming with Vampiro vs. Rey Mysterio, Billy Kidman and Eddie Guerrero come to mind of being very entertaining matches. Good by normal standards, great for matches involving celebrity talent. Obviously that is more indicative of the work by Rey, Eddie and Kidman but not taking away from those guys is also a difficult task for a non-wrestler.
