Snoop Dogg took to the ring on WWE’s Monday Night Raw (March 23).
Appearing on the last Raw before Wrestlemania 31, Snoop Dogg was challenged by wrestler Chris Axel, who shouted as he approached the rapper: “I’m not gonna sit back and listen to you talk about Snoopmania when Axelmania is running wild.”
In a surprise twist, Snoop Dogg invites Hulk Hogan to join him. The pair teamed up to take down Axel, with Snoop throwing the wrestler out of the ring. Watch Snoop Dogg and Hulk Hogan below:
