WWE.com issued the following statement:
Raw goes to the Dogg
Written: October 12, 2009
The Raw road crew will likely be putting in overtime to make sure the sound system is up to code when Snoop Dogg and his entourage roll into Jacksonville, Fla. this Monday night. That’s when the rapper/actor will serve as the show’s special guest host.
Snoop joins the long list of celebrities who have taken the Raw reins, including Emmy-winning actor Jeremy Piven, NBA All-Star Shaquille O’Neal and Super Bowl quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. His stint as Raw’s special guest host, however, will not be his first encounter inside the squared circle. The rapper appeared at WrestleMania XXIV in Orlando, where he served as Master of Ceremonies during a Divas Tag Team Match and even knocked out a meddling Santino Marella.
These days, Snoop continues to kick out the platinum. His latest album, Malice in Wonderland, drops December 8 and features the new single “Gangsta Love.”
