Snooki preps for WrestleMania ring

If you thought her brawls with ex-"Jersey Shore" roomie Angelina were something, just wait until you see Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi step into the ring at WrestleMania on Sunday.

The pint-sized powerhouse will grapple as part of a three-on-three mixed-gender tag team, according to the Hollywood Reporter, and Snooki feels she's more than ready for the challenge.

"It kind of came naturally to me," she said of training for the pay-per-view event. "I did gymnastics for eight years, and I have been cheerleading since middle school ... I am going to rehearse this weekend for Mania and will incorporate my gymnastics skills."

Snooki isn't, however, doing anything to prep for the upcoming season of the "Jersey Shore," which will be shot in Italy. The reality series has been such a ratings sensation that she feels no pressure to pre-plan her plotlines. "We are just ourselves, and people think we're entertaining and like to watch us," she says.

As for those rumors she'll get her own MTV spin-off? "There is nothing that has been set in stone yet," she tells the Hollywood Reporter, "but we'll see."

    Watch a Pre-January 8th copy of Inception. Listen closely when the actors say imagine, reality, and safe, or point pistols. You'll hear the words, Loughner, offin' her, part of the word Giffords, and much more. Some say they hear, do it.

    I think my personal "cause" lately is bashing generally judgmental bashers. I can't bring myself to be as hard on "Snooki" as I'd be on, say, Paris Hilton. Insofar as I'm aware, Snooki isn't a ridiculously spoiled brat from privilege, hasn't bemoaned how unfair it was to be sentenced to prison after a hundred judicial breaks, nor has she claimed anywhere that she's "earned" her "success" through all her "hard work."

    Snooki (real name?) strikes me a *genuinely* intellectually limited young lady who's merely accepting what our celebrity (however minor) culture is willing to offer. Who wouldn't? It's not as if the kid's ever going to proffer a new law of thermodynamics.

    Incredulity over Rutgers' decision, on the other hand, I can understand.

    Thank you American public for making this idiot famous. I am not the most talented person on the planet, but a peanut in my scat has more talent...and that goes for the rest of those Jersey D-Bags.

    While Jersey Shore is a complete embarrassment to America and Snooki absolutely should not be a celebrity, I don't understand all the people calling her fat. She's not terribly intelligent or entertaining and those are good reasons to rip on her, but fat? Have you even seen her? Just because she's not a size zero with her entire ribcage sticking out like the runway models doesn't mean she's fat.

      I've seen her. She is fat. She is actually really nasty looking in person. Very shory, very pudgy. Not attractive in any way whatsoever.

      Although, here may be something to this wrestling for her. They do have midget wrestling don't they.

    Dude, if Snooki sits on your head, you can call that move the Sticky Tuna Taco! and if she tag-teams you with the Situation, you can call it the Scab Sandwich! Almost too heinously gnarly to think of without blowing chunks!

      Buddy, No one says it doesn't take a toll on the body to be a professional wrestler. But any entertainment where the outcome is predetermined is not a sport. It is hard to be a professional dancer also but that doesn't make it a sport. You're comparison to Olympic wrestling is laughable.

    Alot of you haters just do not appreciate the sport of professional wrestling. If you think it is so fake i would like to see you step into the 4 cornered ring. Only the best of the best can be a pro wrestler. You are just jealous. Wrestling is more than a sport or entertainment. Wrestling is a way of life !
