Mojo Rawley has responded to the challenge that former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski put out in an interview with TMZ Sports last month.
It should be noted that these two are good friends and the call outs are in a joking way.
Gronk was quoted by stating, “My friend’s in there and he’s a little wimp, so I gotta go in that ring and whoop his ass!!!”
Rawley reacted to the challenge in an interview with TMZ where he noted that he’s up for the match if Gronk is willing to step into the ring.
“Sometimes Rob says things he doesn’t mean like calling a guy a wimp when he knows he could blatantly kick the crap out of him. I mean, these are just things that come out of his mouth that have no meaning”
“Robbie G’s been running around calling himself ‘Mr. Recovery’ — well, Mojo Rawley will put that to the test when I stomp him the hell out. We’ll see how CBD medic is really treating him”
Rawley even tossed out the idea of doing a tag team match at next year’s SummerSlam pay-per-view event in Boston at the TD Garden.
“We’ve been talking about doing a tag match together for a really long time,” Mojo says. SummerSlam is in Boston next year. That might be the one man!!!”
