Ronnie Ortiz-Magro from 'Jersey Shore' has proven himself adept at bed-throwing and boardwalk brawls. Soon, he'll be able to let out some of that aggression in the wrestling ring.

Ronnie has signed on for two episodes of Spike TV's 'TNA Impact' wrestling, according to the New York Post. Ronnie's episodes will air November 3, and feature him wrestling alongside legends like Hulk Hogan and former Olympian Kurt Angle.

Hulk Hogan (in yellow, right), the 80s legend that put WWF WWE on the mat map, announced this week that he's returning to the squared circle and joining the ranks of Spike TV's TNA Wrestling. It's a big step up in exposure for the Florida-based promotion as it struggles to pull away a little market share away from Vince McMahon's Connecticut Death Grip.

While the WWE has either live or taped shows on various cable outlets Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday nights (with occasional weekend specials on NBC), TNA has used the last couple of years to build an ever-growing following in Spike's Thursday night schedule.
