Since retiring from the NFL last year, former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has kept himself busy, as a CBD entrepreneur, NFL analyst for Fox, television special co-host, music video star, contestant on “The Masked Singer” and game show celebrity.
Now he can add one more line to his résumé: WWE champion.
Gronkowski, who was serving as host of the taped, two-night WrestleMania studio event that concluded Sunday night, ended up as part of the action and was crowned 24/7 champion.
The WWE 24/7 championship was created in 2019, and it frequently changes hands across a variety of WWE platforms. The title has been held by several non-wrestlers, including NASCAR driver Kyle Busch and the NBA’s Enes Kanter.
Gronkowski jumped off a balcony in between matches at WrestleMania 36 and landed on a group of wrestlers, including the 24/7 champion — and his friend — Mojo Rawley. Gronk got up off the pack, pinned Rawley and became the latest WWE titleholder.
