I gotta say, there are worse gimmicks. And WWE has a lot of them. The only problem with this gimmick is the boring chants it creates. Boring is the only kind of heat you don't want. They both can obviously take care of representing a character, and if they were both repackaged, I'm sure they could draw some real heat.
Guess i'm the only one that finds Tazz quite funny when Robbie comes out and does his Fist Pump (Oh Oh Ohhhh). Cookie annoys me with her constant whining... but tbh from what i've seen of the Jersey shore, her character is spot on. Especially when she just turns on people even if they aren't even saying anything bad. Pity TNA don't put as much effort into gimmicks as they have this one.
the shore gimmick needs to go. I can only think of one person who loves to write "TV" wrestling instead of 'Fake" wrestling who could have come up with this gimmick....Vince Russo. The only good things about it is seeing cookie and when tazz says Ohh after every fist pump, lol.
