Just when you thought the WWE went over the line with Snooki, it appears they can do worse.

According to Mike Johnson at PWInsider.com (via WrestlingInc.com):

Another name that has been talked about within WWE is 7 year old reality TV star Alana Thompson, known as the Honey Boo Boo child. The "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" reality show on TLC is one of the most-viewed programs on TV and it looks like WWE is trying to capitalize off that popularity.

Look, I am all for the WWE landing celeb's for WrestleMania. However, I gotta draw the line when it comes to seven-year-old reality stars. Don't get me wrong, I get that Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is a popular show, but is the tie-in really a fit for the WWE?

Ultimately, I can't imagine any Honey Boo Boo fans dropping 60-70 bucks to watch her for a 3-5 minute cameo if they are lucky. Not to mention, what would they do with her? It's not like she is old enough to do anything physical in the ring, so that's out of the question. I would believe the most she could do is an interview or be a valet for a wrestler.

Overall, the WWE will do what they want, and as it stands now it's just a rumor. Keep in mind, similar rumors have surfaced in the past and have never some to fruition. You may remember the ill-fated WrestleMania 27 Justin Bieber rumor.

Essentially, the WWE needs to keep in mind that The Rock should be headlining 'Mania. If that is the case, the WWE will have no problem selling this event. Not to mention, the possibility of a Rock-Cena II for the WWE title, and I think it's safe to say, they've got money in the bank (pardon the pun).

In the end, WrestleMania 29 is still several months away. So chances are, we are going to hear a lot of rumors and innuendo as we get closer to the event. On that note, the other name being tossed around is former WWE Social Media Ambassador and star of Anger Management Charlie Sheen.

So, I guess anything is possible.
