Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski dipped his toe in the WWE world a couple of years ago with an appearance at WrestleMania.  That led to speculation that he might become a WWE wrestler when his days in the NFL are over.

Wrestling superstar turned actor, John Cena, was asked about the Patriots tight end transitioning into wrestling when his career wraps up.  The WWE legend thinks Gronk has what it takes to be a “great WWE Superstar.”


Cena, who is in the midst of transitioning away from his own “playing career” so to speak, wouldn’t mind if Gronkowski made the WWE his next stop.

“I think he’d be a great WWE Superstar. I really do,” Cena told ESPN in a recent interview. “I think he’s got this unbelievable energy and infectious electricity about him.”

Cena acknowledged that there’s already plenty about Gronkowski that screams pro wrestler.

“I think if he wants to take off the pads and step in the arena, I think he’ll feel right at home,” Cena added.

Gronk would be an amazing wrestler.  He already has a name for his signature move, the Gronk spike.  Hopefully the NFL doesn’t leave him too disabled to make the move into the ring.  We need Gronk in the WWE.
