In news that will surprise absolutely no one who's followed the off-the-field exploits of Rob Gronkowski, the former New England Patriots tight end is close to finalizing a deal with the WWE. ESPN reports that "how he'll be used onscreen is unknown," although it's pretty easy to imagine Gronk jumping in the ring. In fact, he's done it before, taking part in the Andre the Giant Battle Royal at WrestleMania in 2017. This past August, Gronkowski said, "I don't feel like I would be a full-time wrestler," but proclaimed that he'd be "down for" doing "one crazy match."
