WWE & Rob Gronkowski Close to a Deal; Could Appear on 3/20 Smackdown

-- According to Ryan Satin on the latest "WWE Backstage", Rob Gronkowski is close to finalizing a contract to appear on WWE TV in the very near future, with a possible date of the 3/20 Smackdown in New Orleans. While nothing is official, the fact that this news was reported on the FOX program pretty much means it's going to happen. Gronk is no stranger to WWE, already appearing at WrestleMania 33 in 2017 where he helped his close friend Mojo Rawley win the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. The former NFL star tight end is currently an analyst for FOX and has always hinted at making additional appearances for WWE so this is very much a natural fit, especially with WrestleMania 36 around the corner.
