Rob Gronkowski is a four-time Super Bowl champion and is regarded by many as one of the best football players in the modern era. He was also involved in a program at WrestleMania a couple of years ago.
Rob Gronkowski first made an appearance during the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 33. He helped his friend Mojo Rawley win the match during that appearance.
Gronk brought an end to his football career back in 2019 when he stated that his passion for the game was no longer there. Then the former WWE 24/7 Champion returned to play for the Buccaneers for another season.
While speaking with Wrestling Inc., former WWE Superstar Mojo Rawley addressed Rob Gronkowski’s possible return to pro wrestling and how much he actually trained.
“I gotta think he’ll go back to football before he comes to wrestling full time,” Mojo said. “I’ve always said ‘I don’t think Rob is done.’ He gets too bored too quickly. He’s another one that likes a lot of excitement, is always doing a lot of things. He retired once before, it didn’t last that long.” Gronkowski had made appearances in the WWE right after his initial retirement from the NFL.
“I would love to see Rob come back [to wrestling.] I don’t know what his master plan is here, I don’t even know if he even has one. I know he wants to enjoy some time off.
He’s had some training. No formal in-ring training. We had that in the ropes. We never got to that because [Tom] Brady went back to the [Buccaneers] and the offer was too good for Rob not to go back.”
Gronkowski wanted to return to Tampa Bay and play again with Tom Brady but he ended up tiring earlier this year. We will have to wait and see if he’ll ever return to WWE or not.
