Former football player and WWE wrestler, who just so happens to be Rob Gronkowski’s best friend, Mojo Rawley (born Dean Muhtadi), spoke to TMZ Sports about the rumors Gronkowski would join the WWE after his football retirement. “It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of WHEN,” Rawley said. But let’s not count out a return to football, especially since Gronkowski is uber-dedicated to New England Patriots’ quarterback, Tom Brady. Prior to his March 2019 retirement, Gronkowski told ESPN, “Out on the field, we have great chemistry and a great connection.”
And when given the opportunity, he has never hesitated to boast about Brady’s top-notch work ethic. “It’s just unreal, what he’s been accomplishing, how he’s still going and how he looks,” he told Sports Illustrated.
According to Adam Schefter, an ESPN insider, Gronkowski’s devotion to Brady may be the reason why he returns to the field one day. Schefter quoted Gronkowski’s longtime agent, Drew Rosenhaus, as saying, “If the team was struggling or they needed him at some point next year, and let’s just say hypothetically Tom Brady gave him a call and said ‘Rob, I need you.’ I wouldn’t be shocked if he came back to play a few games.”
For now, Gronkowski has put in his time, and we wish him the best wherever life takes. To us, and to Brady and the rest of the sports world, he’ll always be the “GOAT” — better known as the “greatest of all time.”
