Rob Gronkowski has reportedly signed with WWE

The three time Super Bowl champion is looking to the squared circle for his next athletic challenge.

Former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has signed a deal with WWE, TheWrap and PWInsider confirm. Last night on WWE Backstage, Ryan Satin of ProWrestlingSheet noted the two were “close” to an agreement, but it appears that the contract has already been signed. WWE has not officially confirmed the signing as of yet, but is heavily teasing the news.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly wrestling podcast, PTW!

Gronkowski has appeared on WWE television before, jumping the barricade during the pre-show of WrestleMania 33 to help his real-life friend Mojo Rawley defeat Jinder Mahal to win the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal trophy. This, combined with his physique, charisma and his foray into the world of acting instantly led to rumors that the three time Super Bowl champion was on his way to the squared circle.

Last month, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon attended Rob Gronkowski’s “Beach Party” Super Bowl weekend, and extended an offer to Gronk for this year’s SummerSlam, which will take place in Boston, the major metropolitan home of the New England Patriots, Gronk’s former team.

Do you think Gronk has what it takes to make it in WWE? Is this a smart move, or just another part timer cutting into the pushes of promising talent? Let us know in the comments.
