"Jersey Shore" star Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi says she's ready to step into the ring for a match during this weekend's much-anticipated WrestleMania XXVII.
Speaking to ET on the sidelines of a press conference Wednesday to promote the WrestleMania event, Snooki said her athletic prowess should not be doubted. "You know what, I can really fight. I mean, I was a gymnast for eight years, a cheerleader since middle school, and that's pretty much the skills you need to do wrestling. You just need to go all out and trust yourself, plus flexibility, and flips and stuff like that, I can do all that."
The reality star calls her opponent, Vickie Guerrero, a "nasty broad" who gave her the wrestling challenge: "So of course I couldn't back down, I had to say yes." She says she enlisted professional wrestlers Trish Stratus and John Morrison for her team -- called Brunette Mafia. We're winning, and that's all, the Brunette Mafia is coming, so get ready, because I am so ready for WrestleMania."
WrestleMania XXVII is set to smack down Sunday, April 3 live on pay-per-view from Atlanta's Georgia Dome.
