Angelina Pivarnick, a low end cast member of Jersey Shore during the MTV show’s first two seasons, appeared at last Thursday’s TNA iMPACT! taping in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Some wrestlers were told by management she did the appearance for exposure and was not paid. However, both the Pro Wrestling Torch and Wrestling Observer Newsletter report she was paid $7,000 for the one night appearance. Her former cast mate, J-WOWW, reportedly scored $5,000 from TNA when she made an appearance last year.It’s said that she was hoping to land a contract with the organization.
Pivarnick was given her own locker room at the event. A source states this was done to keep her out of everyone’s hair and not because she was receiving star treatment.
The Motor City Machine Guns, Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley, were backstage at last Thursday’s TNA iMPACT! taping in Fayetteville, North Carolina. They filmed a pre-taped segment that is expected to air on next week’s episode of TNA iMPACT!. Shelley has been sidelined since January due to a broken collarbone.
