Snooki will fight at Wrestlemania, because if you believe in yourself, anything is possible


Image Credit: WWE

Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Federation was an immensely popular reality TV enterprise before people knew what “reality TV” was. Now, reality television is everywhere. Ergo, Vince McMahon invented the 21st century. So there is something poetic in the news that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, reality star of the waking national nightmare that is Jersey Shore, will take part in a six-way duel at WrestleMania XXVII on April 3. I believe this will make Snooki the first best-selling novelist to step into the ring. (Yes, Mankind was a bestselling author, but he was a memoirist. Totes diff.) Snooki’s journey to WrestleMania began at this week’s WWE Monday Night Raw. She was only slated to guest-host, but that naturally led to some guest-taunting, and finally a good old-fashioned guest-scuffle. Check out video of the fight after the jump...

Fight fans will recall that Snooki put up a good showing against fellow mini-panzer diva Angelina during their grudge match last season on Jersey Shore. Snooki also recovered well from the infamous first-season punch, which indirectly made her a national sweetheart, which proves that violence solves everything, which is what wrestling is all about, right? Now, I know what you’re thinking: “This has Lionel Giroux written all over it!” It’s true, Snooki is a bit smaller than her competitors. And you could argue that fighting in the WrestleMania ring surrounded by thousands of screaming fans is a little bit different than fighting in a living room surrounded by a dozen cackling cameramen. But I’m betting she’ll hold her own.

PopWatchers, are you intrigued to see Snooki get into the ring? Since J-Woww put in an appearance at a TNA match-up, how long do you think until the entire Jersey Shore cast just signs with the WWE as a package deal? (They could be just like New World Order, except with better hair and terrible.)

    Mankind was indeed a memoirist, but Mick Foley authored 3 childrens’ books and two novels. And unlike schnookums or whatever, he actually wrote his books.

    • johnny

      Also Mankind is just awesome.

      • Wottadoosh

        Yeah, but Foley is good.

  • paige

    “wrestling” is such a sad entertainment.

    • Wottadoosh

      “paige” is such a sad human being.

    • Barry

      I’d rather watch wrestling over trash like AI & Dancing With The So-Called Stars.

      • Lacey

        Except WWE wrestler Chris Jericho is going to be on DWTS, which is the only reason why I’m watching it.

  • LOL

    Just when you think the WWE has scraped bottom…

  • wwwhy

    my eyes! oh my god my eyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeesssssssss! can i sue vince mcmahon?
    You know, sometimes people can believe their own delusions and the result is always disastrous. Case in point.

  • JohnnyR

    Low life trash!

    • Barry

      Like you.

  • cfkane

    Snooki will win. It’s almost impossible to pin a beach ball.

    • bloop

      hahahahah! absolutely true!

  • Michael

    These is why Vince does it because he know you guys will report on it and then have people watch the PPV

  • marcela

    agh that thing in the same event with the ROCK!!! agh o vince o vince that is so wrong

  • rere

    I saw it. And, I loved it! Snookie looked like a tanned smurf compared to the other ladies & She was like a spider monkey when she attacked!OMG, HILARIOUS! I started watching wrestling when The Rock, The Hardy Boys, Rakishi, etc. were still there. Only thing I didn’t like was that Guerrero gal. But, Trish and Snookie made a great team!

  • Jed

    To utilize the most pretigious event on their calendar to birng this worthless douchebag into the fold and taking a spot away from one of their current talents makes me wonder why Vince is doing all this, other than the cheap TMZ-type pub he would get from this action? Well, he did place Drew Carey into his HOF this year so what does that tell you?

    • Will

      Wrestling and prestigious in the same sentence.
      The delicious irony…

  • lillian ferris

    omg that match is going to be fun to watch

  • Lacey

    Just when we thought WWE was free from Justin Bieber or Jersey Shore, SHE shows up. Ugh.

  • nykolus

    jeezus gawd, i hate to ask, but could ‘wrestling’ possibly go any lower???

  • JS

    I totally think J Woww would make a better ‘female wrestler’…just saying.

  • efrain

    Wrestlemania 27 would be better if the wwe could have The Undertaker versus Sting! Maybe after mcmahon buys tna!
