It had been previously reported that Rob Gronkowski has signed a deal with WWE to work with them in some capacity. All of those rumors will be brought to fruition, as it was announced on this past week’s episode of Smackdown, that Gronk will be appearing on next week’s show.

You can see the official announcement below:

Rob Gronkowski is set to roll through the March 20 edition of Friday Night SmackDown.

The WWE and the former New England Patriot are currently working on a deal. Gronk emerged from the crowd at WrestleMania 33 to level Jinder Mahal and help his good friend Mojo Rawley win the Andre the Giant Battle Royal.

Will the football star reveal his upcoming WWE plans and deliver a mic drop moment worthy of his patented “Gronk Spike?”

Tune in to Friday Night SmackDown at 8/7 C to see Gronkowski’s latest sports-entertainment moment.

Check out what happened the last time Gronk was in WWE:

Editor’s Opinion:

I like this idea, for a couple of reasons. First, it gives WWE access to another mainstream sports figure, which could allow for more cross-promotion for the brand. Second, it allows Gronk to stay in the sports spotlight, while not having to be as physical. He had retired from football due to injury, and this will allow him to stay active in competition!
