Rob Gronkowski will host WrestleMania 36

With Tom Brady heading to Tampa, WrestleMania officially has left Tampa. But one of Brady’s former teammates will now have a major role in the process.

Rob Gronkowski has announced that he’ll be hosting the event, set for April 4 and 5.

Reports recently emerged that Gronk would be signing a deal with WWE. He apparently won’t be wrestling, at least not yet.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, WrestleMania won’t occur in a stadium but in a studio, the way professional wrestling once regularly occurred. (Indeed, it was once called “Studio Wrestling.”)

So Gronk will be in the studio, and the wrestling will be in a studio. And if Gronk happens to get a little too close to the action in the studio, well, no one will complain.

    April 4th and 5th? Yeah….that’ll be cancelled.

    its in a closed studio. so thats unlikely kiddo.

  2. Here’s the thing. As easy as it is to poke fun at wrestling, it takes practice and skill to be good at it. There’s no guarantee that Gronk can wrestle just because he was good at football. Hence, he’s the host.

    It already was cancelled. It was supposed to be at Raymond James Stadium… it’s now taking place in the WWE performance center with no audience.

  4. One is just as fake as the other !!! Wrestling is more physical then the football these days

  5. People love to dismiss Pro Wrestling as fake, let me assure you it is not. Yes,the winner of the match is predetermined, the storylines are choreographed and very few of the wrestlers actually dislike each other, but the skill and athletic ability that is required to execute the moves, the talent it takes to play you character, the injuries suffered in the ring, the physical lifetime effects of being a career Pro Wrestler are very real.

  6. WM has already been cancelled in Tampa. He will be hosting it from the tiny WWE Performance Center in Orlando with no crowd. So long story short, he will be hosting the worst WM of all time.

  7. No audience for this will be hilarious. Half the thing is the 2 – 4 minute walking out of the tunnel to the ring of each wrestler with all the lights, pyro, screaming of the crowd, etc.

    With that all gone they’ll have to be very creative in what they do

  8. How can you not like this guy he is like a big kid and makes millions doing it. I am not even a Pats fanboy and I like the guy.

  9. The wrestlers will also be doing shadow wrestling and the winner will pin down his opponent, without touching each other.
