It’s well known that New England Patriot football player Rob Gronkowski is a big WWE fan and is friends with NXT star Mojo Rawley. Back in April, Gronkowski spoke to Fox Sports about his friendship with Rawley:
“I love watching him,” Gronk said. “We were just chilling, and we cut a promo together, and we had a blast. I can definitely see something in the future. Hopefully Mojo Rawley starts wrestling a lot and starts doing what he has to do and makes it to Monday Night Raw, if my boy is there, I’m there for an appearance.”
Gronkowski recently stated in a “Truth or Dare” video for Draft Kings that you may see the ‘Madden 17′ cover guy in a WWE ring once his NFL career comes to an end. Gronkowski also stated that he would consider a career in WWE but not in a full-time role. Gronkowski added that his name would be “The Gronk.”
It’s very possible that Gronkowski works a match in WWE once his NFL career is over. WWE has had several celebrities wrestle or get physical in a ring before. The most notable NFL star that has wrestled in WWE was Lawrence Taylor, who wrestled Bam Bam Bigelow at WrestleMania 11.
