Snoop Dogg's praise for WWE stars

Snoop Dogg praised his favourite wrestlers as he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on Saturday (02.04.16).

The rapper and avid WWE supporter is the Celebrity Inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame's Class of 2016 and used his speech to speak about his admiration for stars including Steve Austin, The Undertaker, Randy Orton, Mark Henry, DX and "Shizzle, my nizzle Shawn Michaels".

However, he reserved a special mention for his cousin, 'The Boss' Sasha Banks, and reminisced about taking her to WrestleMania in 2008, saying he knew this was where she belonged and where she wanted to be.

To finish his speech at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, Snoop - who was praised by John Cena as "a very vocal supporter and proud member of the WWE Universe" - performed a brief rap.

Meanwhile, Sting - who was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on Saturday - used his speech to reveal his retirement.

The wrestler - real name Steve Borden - said: "On this very night, at this very moment, I'm going to finish my career under the WWE umbrella and I'm so proud of that. I am officially going to retire tonight.

"I want you to know this isn't goodbye, this is a see you later."
