Obviously, this is a great opportunity for the former Patriots star, and I think we’re going to see him doing more and more stuff like this.
It’s pretty clear that Gronk has no interest in playing in the NFL again, and I don’t blame him one bit. He’s got money in the bank, he’s got three rings and he’s dating Camille Kostek.
He has no incentive at all to get crushed on the field again.
It should be a lot of fun to see what Gronk does in the WWE and how large his role can grow. There’s no question he’s a huge star.
