Snoop Dogg’s Love for WWE Has Earned Him a New Career Milestone

He is the first to be inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame.

Snoop Dogg and the WWE go way back, with the Doggfather joining Hulk Hogan against Curtis Axel for one example and serving as a master of ceremonies for Raw in 2009 for another.

Snoop has been a longtime fan of professional wrestling, and thanks to the folks at WWE, he is taking home a title all his own, all without having to step foot in the ring.

The legendary rapper will be inducted into the Hall of Fame’s 2016 class, making him the first musician to earn such an honor. 

Snoop will join Sting, the Godfather, the Fabulous Freebirds, Big Boss Man, Jacqueline and Stan Hansen at the 2016 WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony on April 2, the night before WrestleMania32. is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
