Snooki’s “Wrestlemania” appearance was well deserved, and it is what the WWE needed for “Wrestlemania”. You can all love her or hate her all you want. It’s a fact that she’s currently the biggest mainstream celebrity of them all. Sure, Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton and Britney Spears maybe huge in the media, but they are not even in Snooki’s league.
The whole point of “Wrestlemania” is to celebrate pop culture in the media world. “Wrestlemania” is all about celebrities. It has been for over 20 years. Remember, Cyndi Lauper and Mr. T were the first two celebrities that made the first “Wrestlemania” huge. Without the celebrities, no one would care for “Wrestlemania”. Everytime a new Wrestlemania happens, when a celebrity is huge around that time, WWE would hire that celeb for the Wrestlemania appearance. For example when Donald Trump did his “hair vs. hair” match with Vince McMahon, that was when The Donald’s show, “Celebrity Apprentice” started getting huge. Kim Kardashian was already part of Wrestlemania for “WM-24”, she was the guest host that year, that was when Kim K. started to get known. Around the time, “The Wrestler” film came out, Mickey Rourke made his WM appearance for his match with Jericho. Floyd Mayweather Jr. made his WM appearance because he was just getting known as a popular fighter. You get the idea?
Celebrities are very important with “Wrestlemania” shows. The WWE doesn’t care if people hate that certain “celebrity”. As long as that celebrity is huge in pop culture, like ’em or hate ’em, the WWE will hire that celebrity for a “Wrestlemania” appearance. That’s how it goes. Why does the WWE hire a popular celeb in current pop culture? Because it helps people pull in buy rates for ppv’s and helps gives the WWE more publicity.
Snooki was actually pretty entertaining last night. As I expected, she did the most action. She did a few impressive moves, she did this pin wheel like finisher to give Lay-Cool the 1-2-3 and that was it. That’s how Snooki’s team won. After seeing all that, Snooki is pretty athletic. When Snooki appeared in the ring last night at Wrestlemania, she got booed heavily, of course…but when she did that pin wheel thing last night, the audience actually cheered for her.
So would Snooki be a good full time WWE Diva when the time comes? Absolutely! She has the look to be a Diva, so why not?
Why do I talk positive toward Snooki so much? It’s because I have no problem with her. She’s not that bad as other celebrities in the media. Charlie Sheen, Chris Brown, and Paris Hilton are the worst trainwrecks. Snooki is pretty normal, in my opinion, she’s just a human being that enjoys entertaining people. That’s all she wants to do. She did a good job last night.
I’m sure there will be more Snooki WWE appearances up ahead. Maybe she’ll be on RAW tonight?
