Snooki Steals Wrestlemania Spotlight, Our Cold Hearts

Posted by James Montgomery On April - 4 - 2011

On Sunday night, I ended my seven-year hiatus from professional wrestling when I attended a screening of Wrestlemania XXVII, the WWE’s annual celebration of Spandex and suplexes. And almost immediately, I realized why I had decided to stop watching this stuff in the first place.

Because, boy, was the show awful. Full of bizarre bookings (Alberto Del Rio wuz robbed!), plodding matches (I’m still recovering from the Undertaker/HHH snooze-fest) and, of course, an anti-climactic finale (having The Rock bury both challenger John Cena and champion The Miz was a rather, uh, interesting choice, to say the very least), it was a listless four hours that left me feeling empty inside. And while, sure, there were a few bright spots — why has no one ever told me about this CM Punk guy?!?! — overall, I feel pretty secure saying that I can probably go another seven years without watching the WWE again. If not much, much longer.

Still, I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out just how impressed I was with Snooki, who was added to the ‘Mania card with much fanfare (and much derision from hard-core wrestling fans) last month, and then surprised pretty much everyone by delivering the goods on Sunday night.

I mean, sure, the Snookster didn’t exactly have much to do — she was teamed with Trish Stratus and some dude named John Morrison in the so-called “Brunette Mafia” (props to Trish for keeping kayfabe alive by dying her hair brown), who took on the team of Dolph Ziggler, Michelle McCool and Layla — but in her limited action, Snooki proved that she was a stout worker, delivering a slap to Ziggler, mixing it up on the mat, and, in the bout’s final spot, hitting an honest-to-goodness, across-the-ring backflip on McCool.

That move earned some actual “Ooh’s” from the Georgia Dome crowd, and, after pinning McCool, Snooki stood victorious, arms raised by Stratus and Morrison. It was by no means a technical masterpiece, but as far as celebrified smackdowns go, it was pretty decent (and it was definitely better than that Big Show/Kane/Corre clusterfrick). So, why knows, perhaps Snooki has a future in the grappling business? She’s already got her finisher down pat.

John Cena Recalls His Humble WrestleMania Beginnings

Posted by Kyle Anderson On April - 1 - 2011

This weekend, over 70,000 live fans and millions more at home will cast their eyes on WrestleMania XXVII, the biggest event of the year in professional wrestling. The show will be live from the Georgia Dome in Atlanta and will be hosted by Dwayne Johnson (who has brought “The Rock” back to the WWE). The top matches include a tilt between two legends (Triple H versus the Undertaker), a six-person tag match starring an MTV personality (John Morrison, Trish Stratus and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi against Dolph Ziggler and LayCool) and the match for the coveted WWE Championship (current title-holder the Miz defending against John Cena).

Cena has been the perpetual headliner at WrestleMania for the better part of the past five years or so (he had been in one of the main events of each WrestleMania since 2005, and he has gone on last twice). But though he’s the top guy in the company now, that was not always true. His first WrestleMania was back in 2004 when he opened up WrestleMania XX at Madison Square Garden in New York City. He took on the Big Show for the United States Championship, but before his music hit and he walked through the curtain into the arena, he admitted that he was a little bit distracted.

“I was worried my car was going to get towed,” Cena admitted to MTV News at the WrestleMania press conference on Wednesday (March 30). “I was not allowed TK. It was cool because it was a moment of stardom wedged between reality. I truly love moments like that.”

Being a WrestleMania veteran, Cena also offered newcomer Snooki some solid advice for her match. “I told her it’s just like an afternoon at the shore,” he said. “You’re supposed to go out and have a good time, and if trouble starts, just keep swinging until the cops come.”

Spotted: Snooki Lays The Smackdown In Preparation For WrestleMania

Posted by MTV News On March - 31 - 2011

Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that’s why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.

As always, this year’s WrestleMania (the 27th the series, which makes it about the same age as the MTV Video Music Awards) features some guest appearances from a number of celebrities. Keri Hilson will be performing “America the Beautiful” at the event (which takes place this Sunday, April 3 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta), and one of the big matches on the card includes “Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi. She’ll team up with John Morrison and Trish Stratus (the trio are calling themselves the Brunette Mafia) to take on the team of Dolph Ziggler and LayCool in what should be a fun and interesting match. Snooki appeared in a “Brunette Mafia” T-shirt at the WrestleMania XXVII press conference in New York City on Wednesday (March 30), where she talked about the show, posed for the crowd and got her picture taken with the Rock and John Cena.

She wasn’t the only star taking care of business in New York City, as Duran Duran performed at the Paper Beautiful People Party and Norah Jones visited “The Late Show With David Letterman.” Click here for these photos as well as the entire “Spotted” archive, which features over 500 candid shots of stars like Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Eminem, Katy Perry, Jay-Z, Lady Gaga, the Jonas Brothers, Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey, Madonna and Kanye West!

The WrestleMania XXVII Press Conference: Sound And Fury

Posted by Kyle Anderson On March - 30 - 2011

I can’t hear very well this afternoon, which I can mostly blame on John Cena. I didn’t crank up his album You Can’t See Me and blow out my ear drums, but rather, I was deafened by the crowd that gathered at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York City for the WrestleMania XXVII press conference. Hosted by villainous play-by-play man Michael Cole, the event not only welcomed several dozen members of the media and some of the headliners from WWE’s biggest show (which airs this Sunday, April 3 at 7 p.m. on pay-per-view) but also opened the doors for a group of rabid fans who brought their enthusiasm (and their chants) to Times Square.

I have been a fan of professional wrestling for years and plan on watching the big show this weekend. Hosted by Dwayne Johnson (returning to WWE as the Rock), WrestleMania XXVII promises to be fantastically over-the-top and wildly entertaining. The press conference presented a smaller version of the big show, as it trotted out main eventers John Cena, the Rock, Edge, the Miz, Alberto Del Rio, Triple H and “Jersey Shore” star Snooki to address the crowd about what they could expect this weekend. Though many of them (especially the Miz) were entertaining at the press conference, the real entertainment came from the crowd of fans.

Wrestling fans are a complicated bunch, as they don’t always cheer for the heroes and heckle the villains (Alberto Del Rio, one of the top heels in the company, got a fantastically positive reaction). They even broke out chants, a staple of any pro wrestling show (in a great moment, they chanted the words “You are hot!” at WWE executive vice president Stephanie McMahon; later, they repeated the words “Next world champ!” at Del Rio). John Cena got by far the loudest and most polarizing reaction of the afternoon, and he weathered torrents of boos and chants of “You can’t wrestle” while trying to talk about how much Wrestlemania meant to him.

In the end, we caught up with Cena and Triple H, who teased some surprises at WrestleMania and gave some advice to Snooki. Cena also told a great story about his first WrestleMania, which happened to be just down the street at Madison Square Garden back in 2004. He opened the show, though he was not entirely focused on the task at hand (a United States Championship match against the Big Show) because he was worried that his car would get towed (he was not yet big enough in the company to get good parking). But in the end, he picked up the Big Show, pinned him for a three count, won the title and returned to his not-towed car to return to his home in Massachusetts. It’s further proof that WrestleMania is a great equalizer, and truly anything can happen. Stay tuned for more from our interviews and more on the biggest wrestling event of the year.

‘Jersey Shore’ Stars Practice Their Italian Before Season Four

Posted by Eric Ditzian On March - 25 - 2011

“Jersey Shore” star Vinny follows a few simple steps when getting ready for a new season of his hit reality show. “Trying to get in shape, trying to spend some time with my family, chill out, the quiet before the storm,” he told us recently.

Now that the cast is headed to Italy for the first time, Vin isn’t planning on changing that tried-and-true formula. “I’m excited to be thrown right into the water with whatever language skills I have,” he laughed.

Vin is actually conversant in Italian, but we can’t say the same for the rest of his roomies. That’s why we recently gave the stars of “Jersey Shore” a little foreign language lesson. Because how else are they going to survive along the canals of Venice and the cobblestone streets of Florence?

Yep, in the name of public service, we informed everyone that the translation for grenade whistle is “fishio di granata.”

“We need that!” declared Pauly.

He’s definitely going to need to know how to say gym, tan, laundry. We just hope he remembers it’s “palestra, lavenderia, tintarella.”

And if the kids plan on having a crazy — and safe! — night out, they’d best memorize the translation for “cabs are here”: “i taxi sono qui.”

When the cabs do arrive to take everyone out to the clubs, Snooki and her gal pals will want to know how to say gorilla juice-head. Once again, we were there to supply them with the answer: “succo capo gorilla.”

The cast seemed to take to the tutorial very well — now let’s see what happens when the touch down overseas. “This is exciting, I like Italian,” Sammi said.

“Me too,” added Deeana. “It’s, like, yummy.”
