The 44-year-old rapper will join the likes of Mike Tyson and Arnold Schwarzenegger as he becomes the first musician to join the wrestling elite at the honourary ceremony held at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, on April 2.
Taking to his Twitter account on Monday, he said: “real recognize real. thnk u @WWE universe for tha honor #HOF #WWE #wrestlemania (sic).”
The ‘Young, Wild & Free’ hitmaker’s passion may lie in music but he’s also been heavily involved in wrestling over the years as he guest-hosted ‘Raw’ in 2009 and served as Master of Ceremonies for a match at ‘WrestleMania XXIV’.
He also joined Hulk Hogan in the ring as he helped throw Curtis Axel over the top rope at the go-home show last year.
Meanwhile, Snoop – whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr – isn’t the only person to be inducted at this year’s ceremony as Sting, Big Boss Man, Fabulous Freebirds and Stan ‘The Lariat’ Hansen will also join the Hall of Fame.
This year’s ceremony will take place the night before ‘WrestleMania 32’ kicks off at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on April 3.
