Yesterday, WWE shot a big angle for WrestleMania XXVII‘s mixed tag team match of John Morrison, Trish Stratus and Snooki taking on Dolph Ziggler and LayCool, though reports on the Jersey Shore star’s conduct vary. Instead of doing a mass of analysis, we will let you be the judge.
First off came the initial report from popthecrowd.com:
World Wrestling Entertainment shot a major angle earlier today at Miami Mike’s Sports Zone in East Hanover, NJ involving Snooki, Trish Stratus, and Lay-Cool to air this Monday night on Raw. The segment features Lay-Cool searching the bar for Snooki and Trish Stratus. Snooki gets into a fight with a guido first and then Lay-Cool finds her and a bar room brawl breaks out.
Originally the segment was to begin filming at 10 AM but Snooki didn’t leave her room until 1 PM. Filming didn’t begin until 3 PM and they shot until close to 8 PM.
Snooki was said to have been drinking heavily during the entire day and was rude to people, including the owner who she called a “weirdo” before leaving. She said she was leaving to go bowling after the segment was finished taping and would return later for more drinks.
Snooki also told the bartender she was going to be a full-time WWE Diva after Jersey Shore is finished.
However, prowrestling.net has a different account of what Snooki was up to:
Dot Net correspondent EmG, who was involved in WWE’s shoot in New Jersey on Wednesday for a Raw segment, send the following note.
“Just wanted to clarify that Snooki was not three hours late or even three minutes late. The production crew got there at noon to start setting up and the three Divas and Snooki were already upstairs in hair and makeup.
“The shoot started at three and any delay seemed to come from the crew setting up the lighting in the bar. I think Snooki is just an easy target and I also forgot to note earlier. Snooki claims she’s seriously wants to be a Diva full-time when her ‘Jersey Shore’ commitment ends.”
Now, I’m more inclined to pay more attention to the latter report as it’s a first-hand account of what happened – rumours spread, warp and are sometimes just made-up. Still, the angle will be shown on Raw next Monday when WWE rolls into Chicago. If you’re in town for SHIMMER, it might be worth staying on for another day.
