Snoop Dogg has earned some heavy ring credentials after delivering The People’s Elbow to The Miz during WrestleMania 39.
On Sunday (April 2), the West Coast rap legend brought out Shane McMahon to go against The Miz at the annual WWE event. While trying to complete a wrestling move, McMahon injured his leg, which prompted Snoop to step in and finish The Miz off.
Once Tha Doggfather entered the ring, he immediately punched the wrestling superstar in the jaw which made him fall to the canvas.
“Snoop’s got a right hand! Who knew?” commentator Corey Graves said. “Snoop can do whatever he wants,” commentator Michael Cole replied. “I guess, we are in Inglewood,” Graves fired back, pointing out Snoop Dogg’s Cali roots.
After pacing back and forth while The Miz was sprawled out in the ring, 51-year-old Snoop decided to give the crowd at SoFi Stadium something to celebrate by hitting a senior citizen version of The People’s Elbow.
Watch the moment unfold below:
The wrestling move itself is the signature finisher of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who’s won numerous matches over his illustrious WWE career because of it.
Alongside Snoop Dogg, Lil Uzi Vert was at WrestleMania 39 and performed his hit song “Just Wanna Rock” as the Usos — who were the reigning WWE Tag Team Champions — walked to the ring for their big match.
After his performance, Lil Uzi Vert gave an exclusive interview to WWE, where he shared how excited he was to perform at such a prominent wrestling event — and as it turned out, he’s a big wrestling fan.
“I can’t believe I’m here. I can’t believe I got to see so many people that I always wanted to see for all my life,” he said to host Cathy Kelley backstage after the performance. “It’s crazy.”
He also exclaimed that he was “ready to get in the ring” when he saw the Usos walking into the ring.
Sunday night wasn’t the Snoop Dogg’s first experience inside the squared circle.
In January 2021, Snoop made a special appearance during an All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite match, where he leaped on top of his opponent using his new signature move the “Snoop Splash,” better known as a “frog splash.”
With all four of his lanky appendages flying through the air, Tha Doggfather landed right on Serpentico, unofficially winning the match. The “human piece of spaghetti” then hopped up and threw up a pair of dubs in the air with a huge smile slapped across his face.
