Snoop Dogg Makes WWE® Video Game Debut in WWE Champions, the #1 WWE Mobile Game
Pop culture icon to compete against WWE Superstars and host month-long four year anniversary celebration
LOS ANGELES – Feb. 1, 2021 -This week, WWE Champions 2021, the #1 most-downloaded WWE mobile game, celebrates its fourth anniversary with the in-game debut of pop culture icon and WWE Hall of Famer Snoop Dogg. Players can add Snoop Dogg to their roster and compete against more than 250 WWE Superstars and Legends in the game already. This debut marks the first time Snoop Dogg has ever appeared in a WWE video game.
WWE Champions’ first-ever celebrity integration reflects Snoop’s long-time relationship with WWE. As a super fan and member of WWE’s Hall of Fame celebrity wing, he has made multiple appearances at WWE events including WrestleMania® and Raw. Snoop Dogg’s love of WWE is a family affair — his cousin is WWE SmackDown® Women’s Champion Sasha Banks.
“The Doggfather is ready to get in the game,” said Snoop Dogg about his debut. “Having the chance to be part of WWE Champions combines two things I love: gaming and WWE.

To take the event to new heights, WWE Champions will move their in-ring combat outdoors and upstairs, with all matches taking place in a special rooftop party-themed arena atop a helipad.
The fan-favorite title blends match-3 puzzles with action RPG gameplay, and recently surpassed $200M in lifetime revenue.
