Award winning entrance
Academy Award winners Juicy J & DJ Paul of the Three 6 Mafia were in the house for Friday Night SmackDown this week. The duo was on location for two reasons. The first was to perform a live rendition of Mark Henry’s theme song. The second reason was simply because they are huge fans of WWE.
On March 5, 2006, Three 6 Mafia made history as they became the first African-American hip-hop group to win an Academy Award for Best Song. They also became the first hip-hop artists to perform at the prestigious ceremony. Fast forward two months later and things just keep getting better for Three 6. Juicy J and DJ Paul were set to perform live at SmackDown.
As expected, Three 6 Mafia rocked the SmackDown fans into a frenzy with their WWE Wreckless Intent track, “Some Bodies Gonna Get It,” which they performed as The World’s Strongest Man made his way down to the ring for his match against Chris Benoit. Unfortunately for Benoit, he was the one who got it that night because Henry utterly destroyed The Rabid Wolverine, severely injuring him to the point of needing immediate medical attention.
While Benoit had an unfortunate evening, Juicy J and DJ Paul absolutely loved their live SmackDown experience. “This was big. This was history for us. We are so hyped right now,” the two gushed. They not only loved seeing the action of WWE live, but the crowd as well. “The fans’ reaction was crazy! We went out there as fans of the WWE itself and then there were all the WWE fans cheering for us, it was crazy, and the crowd was off the hook.”
Three 6 Mafia enjoyed themselves so much that they were practically begging for Mr. McMahon to give them a job with WWE. “This was serious man, this was real serious business, and we want a job with y’all. We’ll do anything, we just want to go out there and perform for the fans,” the two said.
Seeing the action live had all sorts of ideas running through their heads. Juicy J wanted to wrestle, as did DJ Paul. In fact, DJ Paul said if he were a WWE Superstar he would call himself the Grim Reaper, wear a hooded cloak and carry a sickle out to the ring with him. He even had a finishing move in mind; a clothesline that would take his opponents heads off. When asked what they thought the outcome would be if the Three 6 Mafia faced Mark Henry in a Handicap Match, the pair had mixed opinions. DJ Paul thought they would lose, while Juicy J seemed to think they would win because as soon as Henry started to win all the ladies in the arena would storm the ring and come to their aid.
Clearly, the two seemed to have different opinions on their proposed match, but both were in agreement that Henry was a bad man. “We saw Mark Henry right before we went out and he told us if we didn’t rock it he was going to hurt us. Luckily things went the way they did and he hurt Benoit instead.
Three 6 Mafia’s live performance at SmackDown was a big success for all involved. Mark Henry brutally assaulted Chris Benoit, and the Three 6 Mafia got to live a dream of theirs. “We’ve been huge fans since we were kids, since we’ve been pooping in our pants, and now here we are, backstage in the locker room hanging out with all these guys that we’re such huge fans of. This night was awesome man, we loved it,” Paul and Juice confessed.
