Call her "Superfly Snooki"?

World Wrestling Entertainment announced Monday that Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, star of the hit MTV series "The Jersey Shore," will step into the ring as part of "WrestleMania XXVII" next month.

The impish reality icon will partner with WWE's John Morrison and Trish Stratus to take on Michelle McCool, Layla El and Dolph Ziggler in a six-person tag team match.

The match came together during WWE's live "Monday Night Raw" program, which featured Polizzi as a guest host.

She stopped McCool from interfering in a match involving Stratus by knocking her off the ring apron.

In a statement released by WWE, Polizzi said she will be "snooking for some action at WrestleMania."

Polizzi joins the ranks of Mr. T, Lawrence Taylor and Floyd Mayweather Jr. as a celebrity competing in the annual Super Bowl of pro wrestling.

"WrestleMania XXVII" will be in Atlanta's Georgia Dome on April 3 and will air live on pay-per-view television.
