Snoop Dogg to Guest Star on WWE’s ‘Monday Night Raw’ (Exclusive)

The hip-hop star will appear on the flagship program March 23 to kick off WrestleMania week

Snoop Dogg will be learning some new tricks when he guest stars on WWE’s “Monday Night Raw” on March 23.

The hip-hop star returns to the flagship program after previously guest hosting in October 2009 and appearing on WrestleMania XXIV.

The Doggfather follows in the footsteps of an impressive list of recent guest hosts on “Monday Night Raw,” including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, Betty White and even “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart, who had a beef with WWE Superstar Seth Rollins.

It will be a busy month for Snoop, who is also heading to Austin, Texas, to be a keynote speaker at SXSW on March 20.

Having sold more than 35 million albums worldwide over the past 20 years, his next album “Bush” – which was produced by Pharrell Williams — will be released by Columbia Records on May 12.

The first single, “Peaches N Cream” featuring Charlie Wilson, is out now, and the entire album is available for pre-order.

Snoop Dogg will also make a cameo on Fox’s “Empire” on Wednesday for the season finale, playing himself.

The “Gin and Juice” singer recently shared the spotlight with his son, Cordell Broadus, in a five-part docu-series on ESPN called “Snoop & Son,” following the teenager’s quest to become a college football player.

Snoop Dogg‘s appearance on “Raw” kicks off WrestleMania week to get fans fired up for WrestleMania 31, which takes place Sunday, March 29 from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, and will be live on WWE Network and pay-per-view at 7 p.m. E.T.

“Monday Night Raw” is the longest-running, weekly episodic program in U.S. primetime TV history and is the most-watched, regularly scheduled programs on cable, airing live every Monday night on USA Network.
