‘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.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
