Wrestlemania 32, WWE's premiere annual event, was held in Arlington, Texas on Sunday (April 3) and a heavy hip-hop influence was felt. In addition to Shaquille O'Neal making a surprise appearance and using Desiigner's "Panda" as his entrance music, Snoop Dogg was on-hand to perform the entrance song for Sasha Banks, who failed in her attempt to win the Women's Championship belt.
In the above clip, the WWE ramp is turned into a rap stage, with Snoop donning a bandana print bathrobe as he raps "She’s a legit boss, but y’all know that / The big boss dog, yeah I had to do that / That’s my family and we so G / Bow down to the new champ of WWE" alongside Raven Felix. According to the Mirror, Banks and Snoop are cousins.
What's more, Snoop was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame over the weekend for his many promotional efforts, and referenced Banks in his acceptance speech. “You know what’s so crazy about that scenario is that I remember in 2008 when I took her to WrestleMania in Orlando, she was just a young little teenager, and I took her around to meet everybody that she wanted to meet, and you could just see her face light up," he said. "You could tell this is where she belonged. This is what she wanted to be. To see the love that you guys have been givin' her, to see her face on the side of the AT&T Stadium, I mean, I don’t even know what to say to express how great it feels as a family member to see my little cousin fighting for it all tomorrow."
