Vince McMahon is smiling in his cryogenic chamber someplace, the wires and metal tubes fortifying his musculature pulsing ecstatically. Why? As a result of he acquired him, goddammit. He acquired Gronk.
As first reported by Professional Wrestling Sheet’s Ryan Satin—with subsequent updates from TheWrap and TMZ—former New England Patriots tight finish and present Fox Sports activities analyst Rob Gronkowski is slated to hitch the WWE, which at present airs its Friday Evening Smackdown present on Fox. Gronk first debuted in WWE in 2017, when he helped his real-life pal Mojo Rawley win the Andre the Big Memorial Battle Royal.
A supply with TMZ clarifies that this doesn’t imply we are able to anticipate Gronk on a weekly foundation, however moderately a part-time one. Based mostly on earlier WWE developments, this implies he’ll present up as soon as each few months to squash one of many firm’s devoted wrestlers, thus humiliating them and halting their momentum, earlier than disappearing once more. See, if there’s one factor that hurts the trendy WWE product, it’s that it routinely provides up its workhorses to celebrities—together with The Rock—that solely present up when it’s handy for them. Fuckin’ 53-year outdated Goldberg, who can barely go quite a lot of minutes in a hoop as of late, simply squashed fan favourite “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt at one of many firm’s blood cash occasions in Saudi Arabia to grow to be the Common Championship. A very baffling determination with completely no foresight.
ANYWAYS, we hope that doesn’t develop into the case with Gronk, however we’re not holding our breath. His return is deliberate for the March 20 version of Smackdown, and he’ll comply with that up with an look at subsequent month’s Wrestlemania. He gained’t be wrestling, per reviews, however is alleged to be setting up a feud that we’re guessing will lead to him beating the Intercontinental champ in, like, 90 seconds or one thing.
