The appearance will be the latest in a string of announce booth outings for Snoop, who recently covered fellow AEW alumni Mike Tyson’s return bout against Roy Jones Jr.
During the fight, Snoop’s commentary was praised online as he made light of the veteran’s respective performances, with several quotable quips such as:
This s**t like two of my uncles fighting at the barbecue.
Snoop Dogg is the latest in a series of celebrities making their presence known in AEW, with the aforementioned Tyson and more recently, Shaquille O’Neal both having featured on Dynamite.
