Rob Gronkowski, who is still under contract with WWE despite his return to the NFL, has his next date booked on WWE television.
Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated reported on Twitter that Gronk is slated to appear on tonight’s episode of WWE Raw. The show was taped last week in Orlando, Florida at the WWE Performance Center.
As of this writing, there’s no word yet on whether he’ll be actually in attendance at the event or appear via satellite. You can see Barrasso’s tweet here:
“Sources: Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end/WWE 24/7 champion Rob Gronkowski will appear on tonight’s Monday Night Raw. The 24/7 Championship was created in May of 2019, and Gronk is WWE’s longest reigning champ with the title.”

WWE will likely be announcing his appearance on the show shortly.
Back in April, it was announced that Gronkowski is coming out of retirement to play pro football again as the New England Patriots traded him to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
There was an interesting WrestleMania 36 rehearsal story involving Vince McMahon and Gronkowski that surfaced last month, which you can read about here.
