Having already made a name for herself as one of the breakout stars of MTV’s hit show “Jersey Shore” and scoring herself a spot on the New York Times Bestseller list, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi will now attempt to conquer the world of professional wrestling.
Snooki was the special guest on Monday night’s (March 14) episode of WWE’s flagship show “Raw,” and she managed to get involved during a match between Vickie Guerrero and returning former WWE Women’s Champion Trish Stratus. Guerrero won the match with some assistance from boyfriend Dolph Ziggler and pals Layla and Michelle McCool, and once the match was over, the women called out Snooki, letting her know that she was now in their world (and not in a club on the shore). Snooki apparently took exception to their rant and attacked McCool. Stratus and John Morrison (who is currently feuding with Ziggler) helped Snooki clear the ring, and when all was said and done, Guerrero laid down a challenge that Snooki gladly accepted.
That means that at WrestleMania XXVII (which airs live from Atlanta on Sunday, April 3), Snooki will team up with Stratus and Morrison to take on Ziggler, McCool and Layla in a six person mixed tag match. It should be noted that Snooki held her own against the more experienced (and taller) ladies of the WWE (she perfectly executed a Lou Thesz press and threw some mounted punches), and the match should only add to a wildly entertaining evening that also features the return of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and marquee bouts featuring John Cena, the Miz, the Undertaker and Triple H.
Snooki is the latest member of the “Jersey Shore” cast to get involved in pro wrestling in some way, as both Angelina Pivarnick and Jenni “JWoww” Farley have made appearances with Total Nonstop Action wrestling.
