Did Rob Gronkowski announce his retirement Sunday because it lined up perfectly with Raw in Boston tonight where things will really start to ramp up for Wrestlemania 35 at MetLife Field on April 7? I’m not a betting man these days, but something seems really fishy here with the timing and leads me to believe Gronk just might come out of the dressing room or stands tonight during a match that will then lead to drama that builds over the next couple weeks to a showdown at Wrestlemania.
Figure on Gronk’s old friend Mojo Rawley somehow being involved here. This all just makes too much sense and I’m actually all for it. This is exactly the type of fuel the WWE needs and I only watch like once a year.
Anyway, Gronk’s finished* with the NFL and the NSFWBDs pretty much agree that he was clearly great and they’re going to hate to see their old partying friend leave the league. The good news is that it feels like we’re actually going to see more of Gronk now because there’s so many different avenues he can go here. Think of all the parties he’s going to be headlining. It’s going to be a wild ride and to think he doesn’t even turn 30 until May 14.

It all started at 20 years old on stage at the NFL draft when my dream came true, and now here I am about to turn 30 in a few months with a decision I feel is the biggest of my life so far. I will be retiring from the game of football today. I am so grateful for the opportunity that Mr. Kraft and Coach Belichick gave to me when drafting my silliness in 2010. My life experiences over the last 9 years have been amazing both on and off the field. The people I have meet, the relationships I have built, the championships I have been apart of, I just want to thank the whole New England Patriots organization for every opportunity I have been giving and learning the great values of life that I can apply to mine. Thank you to all of Pats Nation around the world for the incredible support since I have been apart of this 1st class organization. Thank you for everyone accepting who I am and the dedication I have put into my work to be the best player I could be. But now its time to move forward and move forward with a big smile knowing that the New England Patriots Organization, Pats Nation, and all my fans will be truly a big part of my heart for rest of my life. It was truly an incredible honor to play for such a great established organization and able to come in to continue and contribute to keep building success. To all my current and past teammates, thank you for making each team every year special to be apart of. I will truly miss you guys. Cheers to all who have been part of this journey, cheers to the past for the incredible memories, and a HUGE cheers to the uncertain of whats next.
