SlamTV!

What?: An internet wrestling show

 

 
     
     
 

SlamTV! is an internet wrestling show, broadcast by the Insane Clown Posse's wrestling promotion
Juggalo Championship Wrestling. It features color commentary by "Handsome Harley 'Gweedo'
Guestella" (Shaggy 2 Dope) and "Diamond Donovan '3D' Douglas" (Violent J), with "Luscious"
Johnny Stark (Twiztid's Jamie Madrox) filling in whenever needed. Its initial run was 20 episodes,
taped on a nationwide tour entitled "The Tempest Release Party". Until its creation, aside from three
initial DVDs, the only way to view JCW was in person or home videos.

Seasons

Season 1

Vampiro was originally scheduled to be part of the tour, but was pulled out at the last minute due
to SlamTV! being scheduled for a national release on DVD, which would have violated his WSX
contract. Season 1 was filmed from February 25-March 20, 2007. A pair of "Free Pay-Per-Views"
were held; the first, named West Side Wars, was held in Long Beach, California, and was
broadcast on June 20, 2007, and the second, called East Side Wars, was held in Philadelphia
and broadcast on July 28. It also hosted its premier wrestling event at ICP's annual "Gathering of
the Juggalos" convention entitled Bloodymania.

Tracy Smothers debuted in JCW by cutting a series of promos in which he insulted the company,
the owners (Insane Clown Posse), and the fans. Tracy ran wild on JCW, having matches which
mostly ended with Tracy choking opponents out. In the sixth episode, during 2 Tuff Tony's match,
Tracy attacked Tony and caused him to be (kayfabe) carried out on a stretcher. With Tony out of
action, Tracy continued to terrorize the JCW roster. Just days before Tony's return on episode 8,
Tracy Smothers was (kayfabe) arrested and dropped from the rest of the tour, leaving Tony with no
way to seek revenge.

In the early episodes of SlamTV!, Zach Gowen expressed his (kayfabe) dislike of JCW. As he
continued to wrestle, Gowen began to appreciate the fans as they appreciated him. By the twelfth
episode, two fan favorites Zach Gowen and Human Tornado teamed up to form the "Pimp and
Gimp Connection". The two new faces of JCW made a successful team, which earned them a spot
in the 8 Team Tag-Team Elimination match for the JCW Tag Team Championship at Bloodymania.

Long-time JCW wrestlers Mad Man Pondo and Necro Butcher teamed up, and after several
matches, the tag team proved a success. Animosity grew between the two, though, as
miscommunication cost both members multiple matches. In a match which pitted Necro Butcher
against Nosawa, Mad Man Pondo interfered to perform his finisher, but pushed Nosawa aside
and intentionally hit Necro with the Stop Sign Smash. The following two weeks saw the duo break
out into (kayfabe) fist fights, which led to a series of matches between the two. The team reunited
however at East Side Wars, and in the following weeks the duo earned themselves a spot in the
8 Team Tag-Team Elimination Match for the JCW Tag Team Championship at Bloodymania.

Nicknamed "The Japanese Juggalo Sensation", Nosawa has always been a fan favorite. He started
out his SlamTV! career with a five episode losing streak. Nosawa received a letter from his mentor
The Great Muta in the sixth episode, which stated that Muta was coming to JCW to check up on
his pupil. Wanting to impress his mentor, Nosawa stepped up his game, and began a winning
streak. At East Side Wars, Muta arrived in JCW to team with his student and defeated the newly
reunited Mad Man Pondo and Necro Butcher. The next week, Muta left. During his match that
week, Nosawa was attacked by Justin Credible. A match was set for Bloodymania; Justin
Credible and 2 Cold Scorpio against Nosawa and The Great Muta.

Debuting in the first episode, "Holy" Trent Acid soon emerged as a major heel. Winning by any
means necessary, Acid quickly moved up in the ranks. By the fourth episode, he won a 10
Man Battle Royal to become the number one contender for the JCW Heavyweight Championship.
On the seventh episode, Acid faced off against the champion, Corporal Robinson, with the title
on the line. During the match, Acid (kayfabe) temporarily blinded Robinson with holy water,
causing the referee to end the match. At West Side Wars, Trent Acid got a rematch, and after
using the belt as a weapon, Acid became the new JCW Heavyweight Champion. At East Side
Wars, Corporal Robinson received his rematch against Trent Acid in a Steel Cage Match.
Robinson pinned Acid after a Diving leg drop through a table off the top of the cage to regain the
JCW Heavyweight Championship.

SlamTV! Part 1 (featuring episodes 1-9 including West Side Wars) became available on DVD
on September 18, 2007, and SlamTV! Part 2 (featuring episodes 10-15 including East Side
Wars and Bloodymania) became available on October 30.

Post-season

On October 6, 2007, an unaired event entitled Evansville Invasion took place in Evansville,
Indiana. The event marked the debut of the Juggalo World Order (JWO), consisting of Scott Hall,
Violent J, and Corporal Robinson. On October 31, at Hallowicked After Party Detroit, an
episode of SlamTV! was recorded. It was released in the post-season on November 17. At
the beginning of the show, Shaggy 2 Dope was introduced as a member of the JWO. After the
main event of the night, special guest referee Nosawa ripped off his referee shirt to reveal that
he was the newest member of the JWO.

On December 21, Juggalo Championship Wrestling held an event called Big Ballas' X-Mas
Party. The main event featured The JWO (Violent J, Nosawa, and Scott Hall) vs. The
Thomaselli Brothers. This match marked Scott Hall's first wrestling appearance since
no-showing the TNA PPV Turning Point and several WWC shows.

Season 2

Season 2 was filmed on the "Slam TV Tour 2008" from April 23-April 27. During the tour,
on April 25, Human Tornado tore his ACL and dislocated his kneecap. While Tornado was
entering the ring by jumping over the rope, he landed wrong causing the injury. On May 17,
2008, Psychopathic Records hosted the event Hatchet Attacks. Along with performances by
the entire label, JCW wrestling was also included.

The first episode of Season 2 aired on June 16, 2008. It was announced that due to Necro
Butcher signing with Ring of Honor, making him unable to compete in JCW, he and Mad Man
Pondo had been stripped of the JCW Tag Team Championship. Eight teams were introduced
to participate in the "SlamTV! Tag Team Title Tournament." The final two teams would face
each other at Bloodymania II. The Weedman and Billy Bong defeated The Bumpin Uglies, The
Bloody Brothers (Ian and Lane Bloody) defeated The Ring Rydas, The Bashums defeated
Leatherface and Jason, and Zach Gowen and Conrad "Lights Out" Kennedy defeated The
Thomaselli Brothers (Vito and Brandon Thomaselli) all to advance to the semi-finals. The
Weedman and Billy Bong defeated The Bashums, and The Bloody Brothers defeated Zach
Gowen and Conrad Kennedy to advance to the finals at Bloodymania II.

When the new team of Zach Gowen and Conrad Kennedy was announced, Human Tornado
was (kayfabe) disappointed that the "Pimp and Gimp Connection" weren't competing. In the
second episode, Human Tornado saw heel manager Scott D'Amore leaving Conrad Kennedy's
dressing room, and grew suspicious. After Gowen and Kennedy lost their match with The
Bloody Brothers, Kennedy attacked Gowen. Human Tornado ran into the ring to save him,
and Kennedy retreated to the stage, where Scott D'Amore met with him. Backstage, D'Amore
proclaimed that he was going to create a stable, starting with the members Conrad Kennedy
and Kowabata, which is going to reform JCW. A match was set for Bloodymania II; Pimp and
Gimp Connection against Conrad Kennedy and a mystery partner.

One feud was carried on from the first season; that of 2 Tuff Tony and Tracy Smothers. In the
first episode of season two, both men faced off in a match which saw Tracy win after a fast count
by the referee, who was later revealed as (kayfabe) Tracy's illegitimate daughter, Isabella. In the
third episode, Scott D'Amore served 2 Tuff Tony with a (kayfabe) restraining order from Tracy
Smothers and his daughter. Backstage, Tracy caught Isabella listening to Boondox, the rapper
who sings 2 Tuff Tony's entrance music. 2 Tuff Tony violated the restraining order in the fourth
episode by attacking Tracy Smothers after his match. Once arriving backstage, Tracy Smothers
assaulted Boondox after catching Isabella (kayfabe) engaging in sexual actions with him. In the
final episode of the season, Tracy Smothers challenged Boondox to a tag team match at
Bloodymania II; Tracy and Isabella against Boondox and anybody Boondox chooses. Boondox
accepted Tracy's challenge, and named 2 Tuff Tony as his partner.

In the second episode, Corporal Robinson put his JCW Heavyweight Championship on the line
against Sexy Slim Goody. When Robinson attempted to hit his finishing move, Boot Camp, the
lights shut off. When they turned back on, Raven appeared in the ring and hit Robinson with his
Evenflow DDT, before stealing the JCW Heavyweight Championship belt. In the third episode,
Raven, along with Sexy Slim Goody, cut a promo in the ring before Corporal Robinson interrupted
and demanded his title back. Sexy Slim Goody (kayfabe) knocked Robinson out with a steel
chair shot. Raven pulled out hair clippers and began to shave Robinson's afro. Sabu appeared from
out of the crowd and scarred Raven off, leaving Robinson with a half shaved afro. The tag team
of Raven and Sexy Slim Goody had a match against Corporal Robinson and Sabu in the following
episode. Sabu, who had legitimately injured his hip recently, could only perform stomps, punches,
and chair shots, but still managed to cause Raven to flee the match with the stolen JCW belt. The
end of the final episode featured Raven and Corporal Robinson cutting promos about their match
at Bloodymania II.

Post-season

On October 31, 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. 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!" 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.

On November 9, the Juggalo World Order (Scott Hall, Shaggy 2 Dope, Violent J, 2 Tuff Tony,
and Corporal Robinson) "invaded" Total Non-Stop Action's Turning Point PPV by seating
themselves in the front row. The group 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. The group stated that they still want
to "invade" the WWE, Ring Of Honor, and Ultimate Fighting Championship.
