Angelina Pivarnick of MTV’s Jersey Shore has been in discussions with TNA Wrestling officials the past week, reports TMZ.com. However, unlike Jwoww’s few second brawl with TNA Knockout Cookie on the October 14, 2010 episode of TNA iMPACT!, Pivarnick wants to compete in a legitimate wrestling match. TNA officials are contemplating pitting Pivarnick against Cookie in a pay-per-view bout.
Of course, we’ll see a lot of people tell TNA Wrestling that this is a terrible idea (similar to when J-WOWW signed a one-night deal with the company), but keep in mind that the season premiere of Jersey Shore last Thursday drew nearly 8.5 million viewers, not only the highest rated show of its series, but the highest MTV rated series ever. The show is very popular and features fans that are within TNA’s core demographic. It’s a very smart move for TNA to try and capitalize off this. The fact that TMZ is covering it already makes it worth it in the end.
