Bart Scott sounded like a pro wrestler during some of his playoff interviews.

He now gets to try the real thing.

The New York Jets linebacker will have the chance to rant and rave for an actual grappling company. FOXSports.com has learned that Scott has signed for a March 3 appearance with TNA Wrestling.

Scott arrived Thursday in Fayetteville, N.C., to tape interviews for "TNA Impact," which airs at 9 p.m. Thursdays on Spike TV.

Scott's NFL contract will likely prohibit him from engaging in much — if any — physical activity. But just being involved will allow Scott to fulfill a lifelong dream. Scott is a diehard pro wrestling fan who counts Hulk Hogan among his all-time favorites.

The duo will be working together in some capacity on Impact, a source said. The 57-year-old Hogan will be returning to TNA television March 3 after an extensive hiatus following major back surgery.

The Hulkster positively critiqued a spirited postgame interview Scott did after New York's second-round playoff upset of the New England Patriots.

“I knew when Bart looked down the barrel of the camera he believed in himself and in what he was saying,” Hogan told the New York Daily News. “That makes him a real dangerous man. When his career’s over and he wants to make some real money, tell him to give me a call and we’ll break him in the right way."

TNA has used current and former NFL players like Adam "Pacman" Jones and Frank Wycheck in previous storylines. TNA also made a standing offer last month to Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco and head coach Marvin Lewis after the former sent a tongue-in-cheek Twitter message claiming he wanted a steel-cage match so the two could settle their differences. The bout, which neither has accepted, would be held April 17 on TNA's "Lockdown" pay-per-view show emanating from Cincinnati.

Scott isn't the only non-wrestling personality TNA has added. Former "Jersey Shore" cast member Angelina Pivarnick will be appearing on the March 3 and 10 episodes of "TNA Impact." She will be joining forces with TNA's "Jersey Shore" knockoffs Robbie E. and Cookie and issuing an open challenge to former castmate Jenni "J-Woww" Farley.

You know, when TNA said there would be surprises at March 3rd. I actually thought it would be something wrestling related.

So far we have what?

Wedding
Dixie/Hogan court
Angelina wrestling
Some NFL guy

They better hype shit up on tonights Impact. And add some fun matches.

He can’t do anything physical? This better be a one shot deal otherwise I think I’m going to be having Pacman Jones flashbacks real fast.

Don’t forget the possible Velvet/Sarita career match, which is a match that was so bad every time they’ve done it that you may be able classify it as not wrestling. Unless they add a really good AJ or Beer Money match, my interest level for that show is very low. I also have no interest in the PPV in two weeks. Looking at the announced stuff for the 3/3 show, I’m thinking Victory Road (I had to look that up) is going to be another one of those shows where most of the card is announced 3 days beforehand and nobody buys it.
