Former WWE Champion Bray Wyatt says former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is not only welcome in the WWE, but he’d love to face the Super Bowl Champion in a match.””
Gronkowski retired from the NFL last Sunday, starting speculation he could join his real-life friend, Mojo Rawley, in the WWE. NFL Network’s Michael Giardi tweeted that sources have told him Gronk has already signed a deal with a TV and movie production company.
My understanding is Gronk had already signed or agreed to a deal with a film/TV company prior to the Super Bowl. #Patriots

Gronkowski has already appeared a few times on WWE programming, helping Rawley win the 2017 Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal in WrestleMania in 2017 by attacking Jinder Mahal and also throwing a beer in Mahal’s face on an episode of SmackDown.
TMZ recently caught up with Bray and JoJo Offerman, who announced days ago that JoJo is pregnant with Bray’s child, and got a comment on Gronkowski.
“Mojo [Rawley is] like my son. I’d love to have Rob here. I love Rob.” Bray said. “My father was roommates with his father at Syracuse so I love Rob. I know him a lot more through Mojo, but he’s a cool cat. I’d love to have Rob here.”
