Jersey Shore’s Snooki is Coming to WWE

TNA’s got Angelina and JWoww, but WWE has bagged the biggest female star from MTV’s Jersey Shore — Snooki.

Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi — who is controversially on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine — will appear on Monday Night Raw next week, TMZ reveals.

EDIT: WWE has confirmed Snooki’s appearance, noting that she will be the guest host for next week’s episode of Raw.

Thoughts: Like it or not, Jersey Shore and Snooki are one of the hottest things on TV right now. Snooki as guest host can’t be any worse than some of the D-List guest hosts they’ve had in the past quite frankly. In fact, with the timing of her Rolling Stone issue, it’s a great time for WWE to cash in.

    Well…it’s nice to know that, at the end of the day, WWE cares just as much about spending money on ridiculous people as TNA does. Only difference is? WWE can afford to spend a few grand on one of these girls. When TNA does it, that’s a salary that could be used to bring in actual talent.

    My eyes nearly jumoed out of my head. Lmao so WWE could hire the most popular Jersey Shore star while TNA can’t, figures. So now WWE are taking another shot at TNA for what they did with their sting video. I actually like this back and forth action, it makes them go up another level … sometimes.

    I’m not happy with this at all, even though Snooki is funny she’s not that great.

    Ugh…it was a terrible thing to do by TNA, but for WWE its even worse because they can actually get A/B-list stars if they really want to.

    Uhmz…It doesnt bring them up a level, they drag eachother a level down.

    SNOOKI!!!!- Seriously? What has the wrestling world come to……

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    good lord, why do these promotions keep trying to bring in these Jersey Shore women lol, however, i dont mind this like @asstar said, the WWE can afford to waste money on these people, were as TNA cant :|

    … I don’t get this at all. Why in the first place did TNA think JWoww would some how boost the ratings up? (F.Y.I it didn’t.) then they did the same with Angelina (once again, it didn’t.). And now WWE are going to try and risk it aswell? Snooki may be popular on the Jersey Shore radar, but shes not on the wrestling radar. I really don’t see this working out.

    Suprisingly though, I am a little excited to see Snooki….

    What The…? Is this WWE’s revenge LoL ? Be cause TNA was use WWE’s mystery promo idea and now TNA using the JERSEY SHORE idea and now WWE will use it ! Wow =] I like this competition

  • Lily exLVEF

    @Mikas

    Well, the whole Cage & Tables match controversey was a good level up for both divisions. Also, they’re probaly pushing Gail because TNA are pushing Mickie which is good for the divas since they need another credible wrestler as champion.

    Lol, obviously a shot by WWE to get back at TNA for getting Sting, and also Hogan apparently spoiled a Wrestlemania storyline by accident (don’t know how far it’s true).

    It’s a bad move really by WWE for many reasons. First of all, TNA isn’t exactly doing all that well with their Jersey Shore usage (personally I like it, but most people don’t). Secondly, TNA are the ones with Robbie E and Cookie anyway (the Jersey Shore gimmick) so they’re actually going to profit from WWE using Snooki (since anyone who thinks about Snooki + wrestling can’t help but think of Cookie). Lastly, WWE are supposed to be the company that traditionally ignores their competition, but clearly they’ve been doing the complete opposite lately, and it makes them seem threatened (to some extent) by TNA.

    Trying to derail a gimmick which doesn’t have much momentum to begin with is really quite a pointless move. With that aside, what’s the point of bringing in Snooki just before Wrestlemania? Do they really think they’ll increase PPV buys by doing this? I can still see WWE getting some good publicity out of this though (not that they really need it compared to TNA), and if it means a storyline for the Divas, then that’s probably a good thing. I just wonder who Snooki is going to be used with, surely she’ll be used to promote the male talent as well?

  • Melina&Mickie4ever!

    Nothing like a little competition! LOL

    I wonder what her segment is gonna be ?
    Does any one think she can get arrested on Live T.V too ? LOL

  • Alex

    Why would they bring this STD infested thing on their own programming any way. She not even PG friendly. All she does is get drunk and grind with orange scum-bags. It’s just America glorifying a negative life style. They say they’re family friendly, but really they’re not.

  • Alex

    And I feel sorry for any diva or superstar who has to do a segment with her.

    Haha! Well, TNA steal WWE’s promo.
    So WWE take Snooki as TNA get Angelina.
    I guess WWE win again…

  • Freaky-Lucha-Dolls

    Haha! Its obvious the WWE is noticing TNA, I thought they were too high and mighty to be bothered with pesty smaller promotions?! U go TNA! =)

    But getting back to the Snooki thing, I think that they obviously dont need the promotion…..but its a good way to introduce non wrestling fans to the WWE. I mean Snooki fans will obviously tune in, and might be interested in other WWE characters or storylines, and thats how u get it started. Well some people anyway.

    Who knows she might challenge for the divas title, shes got the qualifications the WWE likes in their females. She has no formal wrestling background, shes down with showing her goodies to get ahead, shes got long hair, and shes a fame seeker…no matter how she gets it. So its a perfect match! =) Oohhh that WWE, alsways thinking about new talent!

    Ull do just fine Snooki, just stick with michelle who also fell ass first into the business…..maybe she can introduce u to a wrestler that u can marry as well?!?

    Ughh on another note, its monday yall. =/

    “Haha! Its obvious the WWE is noticing TNA, I thought they were too high and mighty to be bothered with pesty smaller promotions?! U go TNA! =)”

    Since when would WWE not want to bring in someone like Snooki if they can do it?

  • trishrocks

    its not necessarily a shot at tna, either cm punk or cena and snookie have been twittering each other for a long time trying to get her to come, so its not just some random thing out the blue

  • WWFoverWWE

    I don’t think any of you have the right to say what TNA can afford and what they can’t, you don’t work for the company. And giving WWE excuses like “they can afford it” does not make it any sense, the WWE divas are paid very closely to what the knockouts are paid, but people assume they’re not just because they’re in the “all mighty grand god” that is WWE( please note my sarcasm)

    Heres the difference between TNA and WWE. TNA made their jershey shore segments entertaining, WWE will just make snooki say a generic promo or do something with hornswoggle

    How do you know that the Divas are paid close to what the Knockouts are paid?

  • Marshy

    When I have read that I have said Is there a gas leak at my house or Is it Titan Towers Headquarters.Nothing else is new cause remember on Monday Night Nitro when Eric Bischoff had spoiled the ending one of the matches on Raw, then someone has imitated the Hulkster on Raw,TBP thinks that Lay-Cool is a take on them,and so forth.That may have teach Hogan of opening his big mouth about Jimmy Hart being let go from TNA to be in the corner of Jerry Lawler when Jerry faces Michael Cole at WrestleMania 27.

  • Lily exLVEF

    Well being guest host makes sense i guess. Even though i thought they stopped looks as though that’s their ‘excuse’ to have celebrities on the show.

  • Macho Madness

    Ha WWE copying TNA a little bit now..

    Funny how WWE fans who bashed TNA for doing this will now try and make it seem like it’s not a bad thing that WWE does it…typical is all I’m going to say.

  • Marshy

    Didn’t CM Punk have mentioned Snooki’s name on national TV? Who knows on what segment that Snooki will be involved in, I just hope that is not with Hornswoggle.

  • Litaker61

    As long as she’s not involved with the Divas I dont care what she does.

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    @WWFoverWWE, the divas get paid alot and i mean alot more than the knockouts, some Girls in TNA only make like 250 per apperance, and they only appear like 4 times a month for the company meaning they will only make 1000 dollars for apperances with the company, i am sure WWE diva make alot more, than that, so dont say the divas and knockouts make the same,

    And also like Melanie said this is a perfect time to get Snooki, she is on Jersey Shore ever week, she was just at The Grammys, she is on the cover of Rolling Stones, she has 1500000 followers on Twitter, she is a huge huge star, so just because TNA couldnt get there hands on her and you no they did, so WWE just trumped TNA big time
