During his acceptance speech on Apr. 2, Snoop took a quick selfie with the crowd behind him, and gave a shoutout to his cousin, wrestler Sasha Banks. He says he took Banks to her first wrestling match when she was a teenager, and the rest was history. He performed alongside Raven Felix for Banks’ Wrestlemania appearance Apr. 3.
“I don’t even know what to say to express how great this feels as a family member, to see my little cousin fighting for it all tomorrow,” he told the crowd. “Wrestling has been good to me.” and in true Uncle Snoop fashion dropped a few bars for the people.
“You know my name, and you know my game, much love for letting me into the 2016 WWE Hall Of Fame.”
“I’m at the pinnacle, man, I’m at the mountaintop,” the avid sports fanatic told WWE.com after his induction. “To be able to, you know, to feel respected by your peers and to be respected by a whole different genre, a sporting event, you know, a sporting category…this is brilliant, this is beautiful.”
