Snoop Dogg & WWE are back in business together

After an appearance on AEW Dynamite that included a dig at WWE’s “no third party engagement” policy, there were reports Snoop Dogg was persona non grata in Vince McMahon’s empire.

He’s a WWE Hall of Famer, though, and his cousin still works there, so most figured it was only a matter of time before that was water under the bridge. Now, with Snoop no longer appearing with Cody Rhodes on WarnerMedia’s Go Big Show, it looks like things are okay between the D-O-Double G (no, not that one) and The E.

Okay enough for Snoop to be the face of a SummerSlam promotion for Scopely’s WWE Champions mobile game, anyway.

Hip Hop icon returns for ‘Summer Jam,’ WWE Champions’ biggest event of the summer

LOS ANGELES - July 27, 2021 - Today WWE Champions 2021, the #1 most-downloaded WWE mobile game by Scopely, kicks-off a multi-week countdown to SummerSlam with an in-game event hosted by WWE Hall of Famer Snoop Dogg. The in-game event features an all-new 1990s Snoop Dogg joining WWE Champions’ roster of more than 300 WWE Superstars and Legends in the game.

Snoop Dogg’s return to WWE Champions’ further cements his status as a WWE superfan, having also made multiple appearances at WWE events including WrestleMania® and Raw.

“Come with me and WWE as we jam towards SummerSlam,” said Snoop Dogg. “Which Snoop will you put in the ring? Whether you pick the young OG or the current me, it’s going to be a good time for fans of WWE and the Doggfather.”

As part of the event, players will have a chance to add the special 1990s Snoop Dogg to their rosters along with a new version of his cousin and WWE Superstar Sasha Banks. Players can also participate in special SummerSlam events highlighted by a special block party themed arena, complete with palm trees, cool cars, and more. Also coming to the game is an all-new Endurance Mode Stipulation Tour where players will battle their way through fierce Superstar matches on the path to take on 90’s Snoop in his ultimate form with maxed-out stats. To defeat the Doggfather, players will need to outlast and endure multiple attempts to wear him out.

Beyond the game, WWE Champions is also hosting a special sweepstakes for players with the chance to win autographed Snoop Dogg vinyl and official Snoop Dogg t-shirts seen on his character in the game.
