She’s not just dancing with the stars, she’s wrestling with them, too! At the Georgia State Fair, reality star Alana Thompson, aka Honey Boo Boo, got roped into the drama in the ring while watching a wrestling match. When pros James Storm and Robbie E. faced off, things took an unexpected turn. While James had his opponent pinned in the corner of the ring, he shouted out to the 13-year-old former TLC star to come over and get in a whack of her own.
James and the crowd start chanting for Honey Boo Boo to hit the other wrestler, and it wasn’t long before the friends she was with joined in. Though she seemed a little, well, unsure about getting involved, eventually she stomped up to the ring and smacked the wrestler right across the face.

“Yep even @honeybooboo gets to beat up @realrobbiee,” James wrote when he also shared the clip on his social media. And we gotta admit, Honey Boo Boo’s hit looked pretty good! We don’t know whether she fully smacked him or if it was more of a wrestling style-movie, but we believed it. Think she’s been practicing her performance now that she’s part of the Dancing with the Stars: Juniors cast?
The 13-year-old was announced as part of the show last week along with other teen and tween stars like Dance Moms alum Mackenzie Ziegler and Scottie Pippen’s daughter Sophia. Alana is paired up with Tristan Ianiero as her pro partner, and their mentor is Artem Chigvintsev. Despite the powerful team, though, she’s already opened up about what a challenge it is to be on the show.
“I did hit a breaking point at one time,” she told People about competing. “Mackenzie Ziegler is on the show and I was like, ‘I’m never going to be better than her.’ But I kind of got past it because you don’t have to be the best dancer to win. It’s not just about being the best dancer. It’s about having fun, too.”
