Snooki to compete at Wrestlemania


'JERSEY Shore' star Snooki has joined the WWE as a wrestler.

The fiery 23 year old is going to be competing at 'WrestleMania XXVII', the company's flagship event, on April 3 in Atlanta.

Snooki appeared on 'RAW' last night as the show's guest host and got embroiled in a fight with WWE Diva Michelle McCool, after the blonde confronted her at ringside and shoved the reality TV star into her seat.

After laying the smackdown on Michelle, Snooki - real name Nicole Polizzi - then entered the ring and took down the sexy grappler's tag-team partner Layla bouncing her head off the mat.

The pint-sized puncher then accepted a challenge to be part of a mixed six-man tag-team bout next month where she will team with John Morrison and Trish Stratus to take on Dolph Ziggler and Michelle and Layla, who are known as LayCool, and she can't wait to step inside the squared-circle.

In a statement, Snooki - who has got into bar fights in 'Jersey Shore' -said: "I'll be snooking for some action at 'WrestleMania'. (sic)"

She also wrote on her twitter account: "Wakin up feelin like a Divaaa! ;) ... Can't wait for Wrestle Mania ... Bring it bitch. (sic)"

Snooki isn't the only member of the `Jersey Shore' gang to turn to wrestling.

Angelina Pivarnick - who was one of the biggest stars of the first season of the MTV series - is currently competing in TNA Wrestling, while J-Woww has appeared on the company's weekly TV show `TNA iMPACT!'.
