A collaboration between The Undertaker and Snoop Dogg? It’s for rizzle, dizzle!
First reported by Complex, the two collaborated on a new merchandise collection that celebrates their respective anniversaries in wrestling and hip-hop. Starting today at 2 p.m. EST on WWE Shop, fans can purchase apparel and other merchandise from the Undertaker X Snoop Dogg line.
“Undertaker. 30 Years. Boss Dogg. 27 years. Godfather to Doggfather—I have an enormous amount of respect for such an icon in the sports and entertainment industry. Our career paths are similar in longevity and the respect we have from our peers,” Snoop Dogg told Complex. “It’s only right we team up for this collaboration to celebrate both of our reigns as the Original Deadman and the Original Gangsta.”
“Obviously, Snoop is such an iconic figure in pop culture. And then obviously, the Undertaker has been around a little while himself, and plays a role in pop culture. So, to the date this Sunday, Nov. 22, marks my 30th year with WWE and then Monday, Nov. 23, will be the 27th anniversary of Snoop Dogg’s groundbreaking album at the time, Doggystyle. As crazy as it sounds, it makes a lot of sense that two figures so relevant in pop culture have these anniversaries coinciding with each other. I couldn’t be more happy to be doing this with Snoop,” Undertaker said. “Obviously, everybody knows, everything Snoop does turns to gold anyway, and then half of that turns platinum. So, I think it’s really cool, and just adds another layer to each of our legacies in the entertainment world.”
As of late, The Undertaker has been in the public eye more because of his “Final Farewell” and several notable media appearances and merchandise opportunities. This week, the Phenom has been a guest on First We Feast’s Hot Ones, got a collector’s box on WWEShop, and has a limited-time Cameo account.
