Rob Gronkowski is a WWE champion.
The former New England Patriots star tight end pinned his friend Mojo Rawley to become the WWE 24/7 Champion at the Performance Center in Orlando, Fla. The event was held on a closed set with only essential personnel due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Gronkowski, who was the host of the event, nearly won the belt – which can be defended anytime and anywhere — on Saturday night. Instead, Rawley broke up the 30-year-old Fox Sports football analyst’s pin attempt on R-Truth to claim the belt.
Rawley’s title reign was short lived after Gronkowski declared early in the broadcast Sunday he was going after the championship. Gronkowski ended up jumping off a small balcony into a large group of wrestlers who were chasing after Rawley. After the wipe out, it was Gronkowski who pinned the champ and ran off with the belt.
