'Jersey Shore''s Ronnie Will Enter the Ring on SpikeTV's 'Impact Wrestling'

Ronnie Ortiz-MagroIn the most "Yeah, that's about right" news in quite some time, Jersey Shore's bed-throwing Ronnie Ortiz-Magro will pursue a new expression of televised machismo: wrestling. On Nov. 3, Ronnie will enter the ring on the SpikeTV series, Impact Wrestling (formerly known as TNA iMPACT!).

This is about as unsurprising as news gets. Ronnie and his fellow Jersey Shore castmembers have made subtle mention once or twice in the series' run about the pride they take in maintaining an overwhelming physique. But organic a development as it is, what exactly is the inspiration for this move? Why now?

As you may know, Ronnie and his girlfriend and fellow Jersey Shore castmember Sammi Giancola officially broke up just two days ago. Now, I'm just going out on a limb here, but maybe beating oversized men to a pulp is Ronnie's way of coping.

Ronnie's episode of Impact Wrestling will air Thursday, Nov. 3 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on SpikeTV.
