Rob Gronkowski close to signing with the WWE

Rob Gronkowski close to signing with the WWE

Gronk, a noted pro wrestling fan and good friend to Mojo Rawley, made his WWE debut at WrestleMania 33 back in 2017, to help Mojo win the 4th Annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

Rob Gronkowski could be going from dodging tacklers in between the hashmarks to pinning opponents inside the squared circle. The show went as far as saying he could appear on SmackDown March 20, which will take place in New Orleans.

Rob Gronkowski is getting ready to jump into professional wrestling.

Former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is reportedly close to finalizing a deal with the WWE - a move that just makes too much sense not to happen.

He spent most of his first season retired deflecting rumors of a return to the National Football League, partying professionally, granting wishes and working as a spokesman for CBD Medic, but he appears ready to get in the ring.

WWE Backstage reports the three-time Super Bowl champ is close to signing with the pro wrestling outfit. He was one of the most dominant tight ends in the game - and possibly ever - amassing 521 receptions, 7,861 receiving yards and 79 touchdowns, including 81 receptions and a tight end-record 1,163 receiving yards and 12 scores in 16 postseason games.

Gronkowski, 30, is an obvious fit for the WWE given his charismatic persona and, obviously, his athleticism. He was named to the NFL's All-Time Team to celebrate the league's 100th anniversary.

Wrestlemania 36 is set for April 5 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.
