Insane Clown Posse (also known as ICP) is a professional wrestling tag team currently competing in Juggalo Championship Wrestling (JCW) that consists of Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope. Both members began wrestling as single competitors in 1983 in their backyard wrestling promotion Tag Team Wrestling, later renamed National All-Star Wrestling.[2]

The two later competed in various independent promotions in Michigan from 1990 to 1997 before making an appearance in Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) as Insane Clown Posse. The team later wrestled for World Wrestling Federation (WWF) with The Oddities, World Championship Wrestling (WCW) with The Dead Pool and The Dark Carnival, NWA Total Nonstop Action, and Juggalo Championship Wrestling. Insane Clown Posse are two-time JCW Tag Team Champions. Bruce is a one-time JCW Tag Team Champion with 2 Tuff Tony, and Utsler is a one-time JCW Heavyweight Champion. Bruce and Utsler are founding members of the Juggalo World Order.
