Just ’cause Rob Gronkowski is an NFL player again doesn’t mean he’s giving up his WWE 24/7 championship belt without a fight — and he’s already eyeing his own coach as a potential threat!!!
Remember, Gronk became the new 24/7 champ after beating up on Mojo Rawley at WrestleMania 36 last month … pinning his friend to take over the shiny, new belt.
While it seemed like it was the beginning of a full-on career with Vince McMahon’s org, the 30-year-old would end up BACK in the NFL weeks later to join his bestie, Tom Brady, on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
So … what’s Gronk gonna do with his belt??
HE’S DEFENDING THE DAMN THING, BABY!!!!
Rob joined his brother, Chris, on his “Gronk’d UP” podcast to discuss the status of his championship … and he makes it clear he’s got his eyes peeled for anyone looking to steal his belt — even Bucs head coach Bruce Arians.
“Imagine coming out of the meeting room, I’m like looking to my left down the hallway … looking to my right to make sure no one is out of the meetings yet, and then all of a sudden … Coach Arians just comes out of nowhere with a flying elbow and takes me out and pins me and becomes the 24/7 champ,” Gronk says.
“That would be legendary. That would be an honor to lose to him.”
Of course, the point of the 24/7 belt is ANYONE can come out of nowhere to try to take it from Gronk … and he says he’s gonna have a huge target on his back once the coronavirus pandemic is over.
Gronk even speculates someone could try taking it from him DURING AN NFL GAME … but he’s up to the challenge.
“So many different people coming at me from all angles.”
We’re watching you, Bruce.
