5 Most Insane Things Happening In Wrestling Right Now (Oct 12)
4. Making His Return To The Ring...
In news from the nu-metal gutter circuit, two men once associated with our great sport made headlines this week.
Attitude Era chancer and Insane Clown Posse MC Shaggy 2 Dope attempted to dropkick Limp Bizkit frontman and future WWE Hall Of Famer Fred Durst (that, sadly, is not a joke) at the recent Rock Allegiance festival in New Jersey. We write "attempted" because this was less Kazuchika Okada, more John Cena.
Durst, who bears more than a passing resemblance to Eric Young these days, the key difference being he has more wrestling moves performed on him, shrugged off Shaggy's assault, grasping the latter-day "nope" spot and Stephanie McMahon's modern reinvention of selling. And people say he's stuck in 1999.
Where this "beef" originated is a mystery; a Reddit user posits that ICP were kicked off the Family Values tour way "back in the day", but Durst featured on the 2012 ICP track 'B*tch Betta Have My Money'. Sample lyric: "Even if you ugly and can't get laid, upon up your coach bag b*tch so I can get paid". ICP also suggest, on ''B*tch Betta Have My Money', "Ain't nothin' like fat p*ssy on my c*ck". Hmmm. Watching a complete douchebag fail miserably is as euphoric, surely.
It's no wonder that the guy who once famously asked "F*ckin' magnets, how do they work?" couldn't stick the landing.
