WWE Upset With Snoop Dogg, Rib Ended Dolp Ziggler Push
It appears as if WWE is upset that rap sensation Snoop Dogg is set to make an appearance on an upcoming edition of AEW Dynamite.
WWE Upset With Snoop Dogg
AEW has upset WWE officials with the announcement that rap legend Snoop Dogg will be part of the upcoming series of holiday episodes.
Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer Radio has the report.
“I do know there are people in WWE who are very upset that Snoop is appearing on AEW Dynamite,” Alvarez said.
Dave Meltzer adds that “He doesn’t have a contract with (WWE) and he’s part of the Turner family.”
Snoop Dogg is a judge on the TNT program Go-Big Show. Cody Rhodes, an executive and key wrestler for AEW, is also a judge on the program. Shaquille O’Neal, who was on AEW Dynamite this week, is also part of the show.

Go-Big Show is set to debut on January 7 on TNT, one day after Snoop will be on Dynamite. The show is an hour-long extreme talent competition also starring judges like Rosario Dawson, Jennifer Nettles and Bert Kreischer.
Over the years, Snoop Dogg has made several appearances on WWE programming. He is cousins with WWE superstar Sasha Banks. He remains on the WWE.com website under superstars.
Snoop Dogg has sold more than 37 million albums worldwide. In 2009 he was a special guest host of RAW and was involved in a segment with Chavo Guerrero.
WWE inducted Snoop Dogg into the WWE Hall of Fame celebrity wing, making him the first musician to be honored. He also was at WrestleMania XXIV as a Master of Ceremonies for a Lumberjill match.
Rib Ended Dolp Ziggler Push
Two-time WWE World Champion Dolph Ziggler is one of the top pro wrestlers in the promotion. While he is one of the top workers in the sport today, he has not always been given the spotlight.
“Pat would always stand up for Dolph Ziggler in the booking meetings,” Meltzer said. “(Patterson would say) ‘We gotta push Dolph, we gotta push Dolph, we gotta push Dolph.”
However, that did not always go over well for Ziggler in the end.
“I think that almost led to Dolph getting heat for it tow here they would start doing the opposite just to (upset) Pat,” Jericho said. “Just to have him lose a lot. You know how Vince thinks.
“Let’s rib Pat and bury Dolph Ziggler because it’s funny to me even though it’s a detriment to your company to do that.”
1 of the best to ever do it. And 1 of the reasons I even got a shot at my dream job was bc Mr. Brisco & Kurt kicked so much ass! Haha Happy birthday, brother. “KURT, WE WORKING TONIGHT?!” pic.twitter.com/XGhu9mfwSi
