Mojo Rawley recently spoke with FOX Sports about various topics. During the interview, he was asked about Zack Ryder suffering a knee injury last December that has kept him out of in-ring action. He noted that after their match on SmackDown Live, he went over to hug Ryder and saw the look on his face afterwards and Ryder told him that he thought something bad just happened as something was off. He noted that Ryder was in a tremendous amount of pain and was a mess. He noted that the doctors came out and looked at Ryder’s knee. Ryder’s knee cap was off to the side of his leg and the moment he saw that he knew something was wrong. He noted that Ryder had a patella rupture. “I just wanted to focus on making sure my friend was going to be alright. Because he had been so good to me, coming back to NXT to try and make this team work. Spending his off days on the road coming back. The guy was… he had no life the entire time as a team.” He noted that to kind of get chopped down right at the height of their tag team and the biggest moment of their team’s career, was really unfortunate.
When asked about Rob Gronkowski’s potential as a WWE Superstar. He said that Gronk is a blue chipper and has done his homework. He noted Gronk has been to matches and is very familiar with how the process works. “And to have him be able to get in the ring and deliver a big shoulder tackle and be front row at a lot of these shows… the guys all cued up. Not to mention all the fun that we have outside of both of our jobs. Practicing moves on each other and watching it together and having a blast.” He noted that Gronk is cued up for a career and that if you look at everything he’s done with his life outside of the gridiron, then he’s got WWE superstar written all over him.
