Break out the pickles, slather on the suntan lotion and get ready to pump those fists, WWE Universe: Jersey Shore’s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is going to WrestleMania. The reality television icon, New York Times best-selling author and Rolling Stone cover girl will join John Morrison & legendary Diva Trish Stratus to battle Dolph Ziggler & Lay-Cool in an explosive Six-Person Tag Team Match.
Crashing the party as special guest star of Monday Night Raw just three weeks before The Show of Shows, the self-proclaimed “Princess of Poughkeepsie” struck up an immediate rapport with The Prince of Parkour. Although Morrison is an admitted Jersey Shore fanatic, WWE’s resident “cougar” Vickie Guerrero made it clear that she is unimpressed by the pint-sized party girl’s outrageous MTV antics. But as fans of the popular series are already well aware, Snooki doesn’t take trash-talking lightly – especially from a “grenade” like Vickie.
When Vickie confronted Snooki in the locker room area and threatened to slap the reality star, the poof-coiffed powder keg unleashed on Vickie with a hard slap of her own. As they say in Seaside Heights, it was on.
Later that night, Vickie – with the help of Michelle McCool & Layla – defeated a returning Trish Stratus to join her so-called “business associate” Dolph Ziggler on Raw. After Vickie celebrated her questionable victory with Lay-Cool, Snooki emerged from her seat at ringside to acquaint the treacherous trio with her own patented brand of Jersey justice. Trish, a Tough Enough trainer and seven-time Women’s Champion, joined her fellow reality television star in the ensuing brawl, prompting Vickie to issue a bold WrestleMania challenge, proposing that Ziggler & Lay-Cool face Morrison, Trish & Snooki on The Grandest Stage of Them All. Never backing down from a challenge – whether it be a dance contest or a game of flip cup – Snooki spoke for her team and accepted.
Joining the likes of Cyndi Lauper, Mr. T, Pamela Anderson, Mike Tyson, and Donald Trump, Snooki is the latest pop-culture icon hoping to make an impact at The Show of Shows. Will her WrestleMania debut alongside Morrison & Trish – in her first WrestleMania match in five years – prove to be a “shore” thing? Or will Vickie & Lay-Cool send the diminutive Jersey Shore star back to the Garden State? To find out, tune in to WrestleMania, April 3, only on pay-per-view.
