Peanut butter and jelly. Kim and Kanye. Gronk and WrestleMania. Some things just are supposed to be together.
On Sunday, the inevitable became simple fact, when Patriots tight conclusion Rob Gronkowski was proved helpful into an undercard match up of professional wrestling's best spectacle.
The backstory: Gronk is buddies having wrestler Mojo Rawley (this bond seems legitimate, based on a post-match meeting). During the Andre The particular Giant Memorial Battle Royale (true title), Rawley was having some trouble using a large grappler named Jinder Mahal. When Mahal douses Gronk in reference to his own beer, it got real. Well, you know what What i'm saying is.
Let's be honest below: There's no way Expenses Belichick is down along with his injury-prone tight end dropping the 6-foot-5, 230-pound Jinder Mahal having a shoulder-block, especially when said injury- prone tight end is a few months removed from returning surgery. That said, the physicality didn't exceed that one move and a few boot stomps, so we don't imagine Gronk will be summoned to Patriot Way over the stunt to NFL 17 Coins Packs.
Gronk isn't the very first NFL superstar to attend WrestleMania. Back in 1995, Lawrence Taylor, two years removed via his playing days using the Giants, defeated Bam Bam Bigelow in the main event of WrestleMania XI. You're not going to believe this, but the mid-90s had been a down period intended for Vince McMahon's enduring function.
Can't believe Gronk did not take his undershirt away from, by the way. Biggest upset in WrestleMania (individual? ) history.
