Ex-'Jersey Shore' star Angelina Pivarnick reportedly looking to wrestle
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 01/10/2011
Angelina Pivarnick's second-season fight with fellow Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi was apparently just a warm up for the wrestling ring.
The former Jersey Shore star is in negotiations with TNA Wrestling officials in an attempt to secure herself a wrestling deal, TMZ reported Sunday, citing sources close to Pivarnick.
Unlike former Jersey Shore co-star Jenni "J-Woww" Farley -- who beat up Cookie, a Snooki-inspired TNA wrestler, during a brief appearance at an October event in Orlando, FL which was later broadcast on Spike TV -- Pivarnick reportedly wants to wrestle "for real" and battle in a geniune, regulation match.
As such, TNA representatives are said to be considering having Pivarnick and Cookie square off a match to be that would air as part of a pay-per-view event.
Pivarnick was part of the cast for Jersey Shore's first two seasons, but quit both seasons before filming completed and did not return for the show's third season.
She was replaced by newest cast member Deena Nicole Cortese for Jersey Shore's third season, which premiered last week.
