Rob Gronkowski Not Expected to be WWE Bound
A new report suggests that Rob Gronkowski is unlikely to join WWE after he retires. Gronkowski was teasing the possibility after last season of joining WWE after he calls it quits on his NFL career. However, a NFL reporter Ian Rapoport says that with speculation heating up again about Gronkowski retiring, he is not as likely to sign with WWE as he was last year.
“There’s a strong possibility that this is the offseason he decides to hang it up and potentially go into a second career, maybe in the WWE although that is probably unlikely,” said Rapoport. “More likely from Gronkowski, he’ll try to be a movie star. As far as why he’d consider retirement Chris Rose, just think about this, he’s battled so many health injuries over the course of his career. He’s finally healthy now and feeling good but clearly not the same player. Not do doubt Chris, Gronkowski has a lot to ponder after today.”
Gronkowski is a close friend of Mojo Rawley’s and has appeared on WWE television before, including an appearance at WrestleMania a couple of years ago.
