MTV "Jersey Shore" star Snooki shocked everyone when she stepped into the ring at WrestleMania 27 and more than held her own, even busting out a back handspring elbow.
Coming from a gymnastics background, Snooki was able to show off her athleticism that probably didn't register with audiences who watched her stumble around on "Jersey Shore."
Appearing on The Bellas Podcast, Snooki recalled her WrestleMania moment.
"It reminded me of cheerleading. I did competitive cheerleading and gymnastics. I got that vibe back, but it was terrifying because you're not part of that universe. When you do come in, everyone is like, 'Booo, what is this girl going to do?' I was like, 'You just watch.' Back then, I would usually do everything buzzed and I would pour a shot before. [WrestleMania], I was like, 'No, I'm not chancing it.' It was the first thing I actually did where I didn't have a drink before to calm my nerves. It was terrifying," she said.
Snooki teamed with John Morrison and Trish Stratus at WrestleMania, defeating Dolph Ziggler and LayCool (Layla and Michelle McCool).
The match lasted just over three minutes and it sounds like it was set to go longer to showcase Snooki a bit more.
"They made me feel so relaxed. I was actually pissed because the match before us went over, so it took out a big chunk of what I was doing," she said.
Triple H and The Undertaker, which went nearly 30 minutes, was the match before Snooki's bout.
Nikki & Brie Bella teased the idea of Snooki returning to the ring with them for a six-woman tag team match in the future.
