Did you know that Snooki’s fiancé Jionni was a wrestler and wrestling coach back in the day? We’ve seen him doing crazy tricks on the trampoline outside with his buddies, working up quite a sweat and getting pretty intense about a little “friendly competition.” Then recently, he shared an impressive new pic on Instagram looking nearly unrecognizable back in his wrestling glory days.

“When I was a somebody!” he wrote as a caption to this throwback pic, where he looks super buff in a black wrestling outfit and helmet, focusing on about to defeat his opponent. “#tbt #hpwrestling #youwouldntunderstand.”

Aww, Jionni, you still are somebody! Not only are you an amazing father to your son, Lorenzo, you’re the fiancé of the fabulous Snooki! Of course, we’d love to see Jionni get back into wrestling, as it’s clearly a passion of his. Maybe he’ll teach Lorenzo some tricks...
