While I doubt anyone was clamoring for it, this line of Undertaker/Snoop Dogg shirts does make some sense.
They’re both pop culture icons who rose to fame in the 90s. One guy is already in the WWE Hall of Fame, and the other’s induction is just a technicality.
But don’t take my word for it. Both men explained to Complex why this collabo works...
Snoop: Undertaker. 30 Years. Boss Dogg. 27 years. Godfather to Doggfather—I have an enormous amount of respect for such an icon in the sports and entertainment industry. Our career paths are similar in longevity and the respect we have from our peers,” says Snoop Dogg. “It’s only right we team up for this collaboration to celebrate both of our reigns as the Original Deadman and the Original Gangsta.
Taker: Obviously, Snoop is such an iconic figure in pop culture. And then obviously, the Undertaker has been around a little while himself, and plays a role in pop culture. So, to the date this Sunday, Nov. 22, marks my 30th year with WWE and then Monday, Nov. 23, will be the 27th anniversary of Snoop Dogg’s groundbreaking album at the time, Doggystyle. As crazy as it sounds, it makes a lot of sense that two figures so relevant in pop culture have these anniversaries coinciding with each other. I couldn’t be more happy to be doing this with Snoop. Obviously, everybody knows, everything Snoop does turns to gold anyway, and then half of that turns platinum. So, I think it’s really cool, and just adds another layer to each of our legacies in the entertainment world.
The collection goes on sale at 2 p.m. Eastern time today. So if you want one of the eight limited edition t-shirts (or the one hoodie, one long sleeve t-shirt, one beanie, or poster) head here and be ready to act.
And really, weird as this whole concept is? This is pretty slick...
And if anything has the power to transport me magically back to the dorm room of my youth that smelled of bong water and Totino’s Party Pizzas, it’s this divine image right here...
So will I be refreshing the WWE Shop page in an hour or so?
