There was much bickering amongst the TNA Wrestling locker room at last week's television tapings over TMZ.com's report that Jersey Shore star Jenni "JWoWW" Farley was paid $15,000 for her appearance on iMPACT!. Others, however, are skeptical that the price tag noted to TMZ is legitimate as we noted earlier here on the website.
Meanwhile, a company source was okay with the company's publicity stunt, even if the $15,000 figure is legitimate. "If you get TMZ to put it up and other people pick it up, then it's worth $15,000.", said the source.
Note from Ryan Clark: No matter how many people hate the fact that TNA had JWoWW and WWE is likely to have Justin Bieber, it's a VERY smart move by both companies. The Jersey Shore is the #1 rated TV show on Thursday nights and Justin Bieber is unbelievably 'over' with kids and teenagers. Both stars will bring in many new viewers and that's exactly what you want. It's obviously very smart from a business standpoint.
