What’s the story?

Rob Gronkowski has taken to social media so as to allude towards a potential move to the WWE.

Additionally, Gronkowski’s comments during a press conference following his team's, the New England Patriots’, loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, have served to further fuel speculation regarding him possibly transitioning from the NFL to WWE in the near future.

In case you didn’t know…

Rob Gronkowski is widely regarded as a freak athlete and is one of the most popular NFL players in the world today.

‘Gronk’ is no stranger to the WWE, being close friends with SmackDown Live Superstar Mojo Rawley, as well as having appeared at WrestleMania 33 in a segment with Jinder Mahal last year.

The heart of the matter

After his team’s loss at the Super Bowl LII, Rob Gronkowski explained that he will indeed sit down and reassess his career options going forward. Gronk stated—

"I'm definitely going to look at my future, for sure, sit down in the next couple weeks, and see where I'm at.”

Besides, Gronkowski refused to answer any questions regarding him potentially retiring from the sport of football.

Furthermore, his close friend Mojo Rawley was recently probed regarding the possibility of Gronkowski making the transition to the WWE, in response to which Rawley asserted that given Gronk’s athleticism and raw abilities, it’s most definitely possible to see him in the WWE, if not at this year’s WrestleMania then the ‘Mania five years down the road.

Besides, Gronkowski has also been teasing a potential move to the WWE, on social media, over the past few days—


What’s next?

Mojo Rawley presently performs for the WWE’s SmackDown brand and competes in the blue brand’s mid-card.

Meanwhile, Rob Gronkowski, who’s been heralded by Rawley as the greatest tight end in pro-football history, is currently signed to the New England Patriots and competes in the NFL.

Author’s take

Honestly speaking, Rob Gronkowski seems to be a natural at all things sports-entertainment.

The segment that saw him tackle Jinder Mahal to the mat at WrestleMania 33 was effortless, and should Gronk choose to pursue a career in the WWE, he’d likely go on to be one of the top Superstars in the promotion.
