According to the WWE website, the Long Beach, California rapper is slated to be welcomed as the celebrity inductee of the Class of 2016 at the official ceremony at 8 p.m. EST Saturday (April 2) at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.
Snoop Dogg’s cousin, Sasha “The Boss” Banks, is a member of the wrestling league and the Doggfather has participated in multiple events. At 2008’s WrestleMania XXIV, he served as Master of Ceremonies. He defended Diva Maria Kanellis by clotheslining Santino Marella when he tried to confront her after her Lumberjill Match with Ashley Massarro against Beth Phoenix and Melina Perez. The rapper shared a kiss with Kanellis after the punch.
He was also a guest host for Raw the following year. That event’s headlining matchup pitted John Cena against Triple H. Snoop got in on the action again when he beat down Chavo Guerrero while he was fighting Hornswoggle.
