Former New England Patriots star Rob Gronkowski is now rising the ranks in the wrestling world after signing a contract with the WWE. He's already off to a quick start too with football in the rearview. At Wrestlemania 36 on Sunday, Gronk captured the 24/7 belt after surprising a group of brawling wrestlers and crushing them with a flying body slam.
1-2-3!!! Gronk is the champ! You just have to think Tom Brady was sitting at home watching the pay-per-view event cheering on his buddy during the big moment while Bill Belichick was scoffing at the fact his former tight end retired at the age of 29 after citing a physical toll on his body only to find a new profession where he's risking his livelihood in some way.
Patriots fans be damned, but every other football supporter has to love seeing this. Gronk was one of the most likable players in the NFL during his time in New England and now he's in a line of work where everyone can root for him.
Just look at that face.
