The rap legend Snoop Dogg, whose affinity for marijuana is no secret, is seemingly gearing up to light a joint with none other than his cousin and NJPW star Mercedes Moné (formerly Sasha Banks). She is excited about her return to the United States.
Mercedes Moné will smoke with Snoop Dogg
Moné, formerly known as Sasha Banks, has been in Japan recently. She defended the IWGP Women’s Championship at NJPW Sakura Genesis before she lost the title to Mayu Iwatani at the STARDOM All Star Grand Queendom event on April 23.
In an interview with TMZ Sports, which was seemingly recorded when she was in Japan, Moné told Dean “Mojo” Muhtadi that she can’t wait to smoke with her cousin Snoop Dogg when she returns to the United States.
“I cannot wait to come back to the U.S.A. so I can roll up a big one, smoke one, roll one again, and go to Long Beach, baby, where you can go to my cousin’s house, Snoop Dogggggggggg,” Moné said.
Moné is back in the United States, as she tweeted a picture of herself hugging Trinity (formerly known as Naomi) at the IMPACT Spring Slugfest tapings in Chicago, Illinois, on April 28.
At NJPW Resurgence on May 21, Moné will compete in a tournament to crown the inaugural NJPW STRONG Women’s Champion. Willow Nightingale, Stephanie Vaquer, and Momo Kohgo have also been announced for the tournament.
Meanwhile, it has been noted that Moné and Mojo Rawley had been exploring Japan. Amid this, the duo recently spoke with WWE legend Ric Flair on a video call. Mojo went on to share a screengrab of the call on his Instagram handle. Following the call, the former WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion sent out a message to ‘Naitch.’
Moné shared Mojo’s post on her Instagram story and had a message for The Nature Boy. She also tagged her cousin Snoop Dogg.
“Love you Nature Boi. I can’t wait to smoke that Ric Flair drip when I get back.”
