Is Snoop Dogg Related to Sasha Banks? The Truth Behind Their Family Ties

Sasha Banks is one of the most popular and successful WWE superstars in the world. She has won multiple championships, headlined major events, and inspired millions of fans with her charisma and skills. But did you know that she also has a famous cousin who is a rap legend and a WWE Hall of Famer? Yes, we are talking about Snoop Dogg, the iconic rapper, actor, and entrepreneur who has been involved with WWE for many years.

According to Sportskeeda, Sasha Banks and Snoop Dogg are first cousins. They share a special relationship that some fans may not be aware of. The rap artist has been very supportive of Banks’ WWE career from the start.

Sasha Banks didn’t know Snoop Dogg when she was growing up, despite the two of them being first cousins. She used to attend his concerts when he hosted them in her area, but she would not get to know him personally, until a WWE event.

When Banks found out there would be a Divas Battle Royale at WrestleMania, she was eager to attend. She begged her mother and father to let her attend, but it was Snoop Dogg who helped her attend that WrestleMania. He encouraged her to follow her dreams of being a wrestler.

“He got me out there and I told him my dreams of wanting to be a wrestler and he told me ‘if this is your dream then go get it’. That was at 16. Then at 23 or 24 he’s walking me down at WrestleMania.”

How has Snoop Dogg supported Sasha Banks’ wrestling career?

Snoop Dogg has remained supportive of Sasha Banks’ wrestling career throughout. When Banks won the RAW Women’s title in 2020, Snoop Dogg posted a congratulatory message on his Instagram profile.

The win was special for Banks as she became a double champion. At the time, she was also holding the Women’s Tag Team title with Bayley.

Dogg has been more active in supporting Sasha Banks as well, walking down to the ring with her at WrestleMania 32, singing for her along the way. The moment was even more special as he had just been inducted into the celebrity wing of the WWE Hall of Fame for his continued involvement with the company.

How is Snoop Dogg’s relationship with WWE after appearing on AEW?

According to Snoop Dogg, although he is a WWE Hall of Famer and Sasha Banks’ cousin, when he appeared for AEW in January WWE was not too happy with him. As a result, they told him they would “pause” their relationship with him.

Two weeks later, they wanted him back for a promotion, but the rapper took advantage and demanded higher pay.

“‘Hey, you f***ing with them? We got to push pause on your ass for a minute.’ So, I say, ‘cool.’ They pushed pause for about two weeks, and then they say, ‘Hey man, we got this video game and we need you.’ Well, you know what? Since y’all told me to push pause, that’ll be double.”

Snoop Dogg is now once again associated with WWE. He could be working with them for their upcoming WWE 2K22 video game, although that’s not been confirmed.


Sasha Banks and Snoop Dogg are cousins who have a close bond and mutual respect for each other’s careers. They have collaborated on several occasions in WWE and have shown their love and support for each other on social media. They are both superstars in their own fields and have made their family proud.
