Mojo Rawley on Gronk

"This is been a long time coming and to be honest I don't know how it's gonna go" Mojo Rawley began, discussing Gronk's debut next week on SmackDown. Because everything's been back and forth, everything's been changed and everyone's schedules are just out. It's hard to manage everything and you know I don't know what's gonna happen exactly with Gronk. We do know that he'll be there next week. I mean, honestly, he's still working through a few things and especially given everything that's happened recently [re : Coronavirus] that has also thrown out a couple of things we were hoping for."

"I'll tell you what this has been a really, really long time coming."

Rawley would elaborate further, saying "I'll tell you what this has been a really, really long time coming. I've been with WWE since July, 2012. Me and Rob were talking about doing something here for years before that, you know. Because I grew up with his family, his dad is the one that got me my job with WWE. He was college roommates with Mike Rotunda at Syracuse, they played ball together so that's kind of how I got started. I was a free agent in the NFL and we're all you know kind of hanging out, watching RAW and you know, everyone was like 'Dean you need to go to WWE man! Like you know you're a free agent right now you're not under contract.' and it's kind of one of those things like, 'man, hell yeah I'll go do that!

Mojo Rawley finished by saying that Gronkowski is willing to work for his spot on the WWE roster. "Like I said, this is a decade in the making, easy. The time's right and one thing that Rob and I both said about this. I don't want you to embarrass yourself I don't want you to embarrass me. You know the WWE Universe, they're unforgiving."
