Another feather in the cap for Snoop Dogg is added as the rapper is to be a Celebrity Inductee in WWE Hall of Fame’s Class of 2016.
WWE writes that the music icon will take his place in the Hall this Saturday, live at 8 ET/5 PT on WWE Network, the night before “WrestleMania 32.”
The news was first announced by former WWE announcer Jim Ross on his twitter account.
Ross wrote, “As reported first on Ross Report, @SnoopDogg headed to the @WWE HOF! The celeb wing is smokin’! Congrats, Snoop!”
Snoop is reported by the Rolling Stone to be the first musician to be inducted into the Hall’s celebrity wing.
Aside from being a big wrestling fan, Snoop has earned the honor as he has pulled plenty of stunts with WWE with sporadic appearances on programs over the years.
The musician served as Master of Ceremonies for a “Lumberjill” match at “Wrestlemania XXIV.” He also guest hosted “Raw” in 2009 where he took out Chavo Guerrero with a spear.
Another memorable WWE appearance is when Snoop joined forces with Hulk Hogan to toss Curtis Axel over the top rope at the go-home show to last year’s “WrestleMania.”
Aside from the appearance when he gets inducted, cousin Sasha Banks hinted to Rolling Stone that Snoop could also be involved in her Triple Threat Match for the Diva’s Championship.
The website added that Snoop will most probably perform as Banks makes her way to the ring.
“Maybe you should watch ‘WrestleMania’ and you might see it, you never know!” Banks teased.
“I don’t need someone to walk me to the ring every week and hold my hand like Charlotte does, but Snoop can make an appearance once in a while. Some people need their daddy to hold their hand and walk them down to the ring, which is fine. Some people need fire to have an entrance, which is OK. But I’m a Boss. I don’t need that stuff.
Snoop will be the 9th celebrity top join the ranks of the following: Arnold Schwarzenegger (2015), Mr. T (2014), Donal Trump (2013), Mike Tyson (2012). Drew Carey (2011), Bo Uecker (2010), Williman “The Refrigerator” Perry (2006) and Pete Rose (2004).
