Snoop Dogg Wrestles, Hosts WWE’s Monday Night ‘Raw’
Snoop Dogg hosted the WWE Raw pro wrestling event in Jacksonville, Florida, last night (October 19). The stint puts the California rapper among the ranks of actor Jeremy Piven, Rev. Al Sharpton and Shaq, who have all appeared as guest hosts of the popular Monday show.
Snoop arrived in classic style, in all pink Cadillac, bumping his new single 'Gangsta Luv' with a bevy of beauties in tow.
"Aw, he's the man. Look at that," crowed one of the announcers. "Well there's nobody cooler," another announcer conceded.
"I am so honored to be hosting the show tonight ... I'm such a big fan of WWE. I'm such a huge fan of Raw. Oh boy!" Snoop announced, hamming it up for the crowd. "And I wanna say this, in my mindset, it's on business, not personal. And I do know that Sunday night, that Raw is gonna embarass the hell outta Smackdown!"When previously asked if he would be participating in any of the bouts, Snoop demurred, "I don't do no fighting, baby - not me." However, he surprised the crowd last night by jumping in the ring to take down wrestler Chavo Guerrero. Then, in true Snoop fashion, he filled the ring with beautiful women and played his single again. Check out some highlights here.
WWE fans also got to see a clip of the hilarious new 'Gangsta Luv' video, featuring The-Dream as chauffer of his Cadillac.
This was not the first time Snoop has squared off against a pro wrestler. At 'WrestleMania XXIV' in Orlando, several years ago, Snoop took out Italian wrestler Santino Marella.
Snoop's upcoming album 'Malice N Wonderland' is due December 8. We like lead single 'Gangsta Luv.' The video drops today, so look out for it.
