While NFL teams announced their free agency signings on the first day of the new league year, Rob Gronkowski took to Twitter to provide some non-football news.

The former New England Patriots tight end will host WWE's WrestleMania 36, which is set to be a two-night event on April 4 and 5. The event will be held without fans in attendance due to the coronavirus crisis.

It was reported last week that Gronk was close to signing a deal with the WWE, though the capacity at which the future NFL Hall of Famer will be involved is unclear at this point. We do know he'll be involved in Friday night's SmackDown event, as Mojo Rawley revealed.

 

It's unfortunate Gronkowski's first couple of events of his new wrestling contract will take place without fans. But if there's anyone who can make up for it by bringing enthusiasm and excitement to the television screen, it's Gronk.
