'Real World' Star Really Wants Some TNA

1/24/2010 7:13 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joey Kovar -- the muscle head from "Real World: Hollywood" and this season of "Celebrity Rehab" -- has found a new way to keep off drugs: body slams, suplexes and sleeper holds.



We spoke to Jimmy Blaze -- who runs a wrestling organization called POWW Entertainment -- and he tells TMZ Kovar has already begun his training regimen with the company ... and will start wrestling for POWW in a couple months.

Blaze says the plan is to get the reality star/recovering addict in the big leagues ... starting with a contract with TNA -- Total Nonstop Action Wrestling -- on Spike TV.

The reason for TNA in particular? We're told it's because Hulk Hogan just signed with them -- and the Hulkster is Kovar's biggest hero. Awww.

TNA prez Dixie Carter loves reality TV stars, so he'll probably end up there at some point.

Nah, let him be with his sellout hero Hulk Hogan, and all the other WWE rejects in TNA. Vince doesn't need another cartoon character in the big leagues.

Miz at least has potential. This guy is just a musclehead. No talent, no upside.

This is ridiculous. As someone who has been wrestling for YEARS all over the country, I can confirm that there are probably more drugs available behind the scenes at wrestling than at any other sporting event. I have seen wrestlers and valets alike use cocaine, marijuana, pills, you name it.
I have a few good friends who work for TNA, so we'll see what really happens with him.
I think it's a shame that just because someone is a reality tv personality, they can get signed with a legit wrestling fed. Promoters should look to the talents working on the indies. No one takes "The Miz" seriously, so why should we take THIS addict seriously?

Oh SHEEPDIP! Trainrecks "N" Anarcahy? Totally No Action?,Twit "n'A**holes? Has this fool lost his mind! To any real wtestling fan,TNA is a damn joke! Dixie Carter is as big aithead as Hedi Montage! After all,Ditsy fired FIVE PERFECTLY TALENTED WRESTLERS,in order to sign up Adam"pacman" Jones of the tenn titans..... Only to have BOTh the Titans and the NFL tell Jones he couldn't wrestle because they thought he might get hurt! Then TNA makes Jones a tag team champion,and HE nevered wrestled. And with Hogan in TNA,it's jusy a matter of time before he runs this promtion into the ground like WCW. Therefore Joey Kovar,if you're serious,stay with the indy's and shhot for Ring of Honor,I hear you can find Johnny Fairplay there

He wants to sign with TNA because WWE won't sign him. WWE is cracking down on users TNA welcomes them with open arms.
