WWE wrestler friend hints at Gronk retirement

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski appeared to be mulling retirement in the aftermath of the Super Bowl 52 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles a week ago. His friend, WWE wrestler Mojo Rawley hinted that Gronk might be entering the wrestling ring.

"It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of WHEN," Rawley told TMZ Sports of Gronk perhaps leaving football behind permanently at 28 to begin a wrestling career. Although he did add: "I can't speak for him."

Gronk teamed with Rawley last April at Wrestlemania:
