Day 14 without basketball and… Yeah. Things are getting weird.
In the new WWE documentary “WWE Untold: Rodzilla Runs Wild” Dennis Rodman revealed he wants to wrestle Rob Gronkowski, retired tight end of the New England Patriots. And he’s pretty confident in his chances.
Take a look for yourself, via the WWE’s YouTube channel:
“Somebody asked me ‘Dennis, you want to wrestle again?’ I could tell you a guy I’d really want to wrestle, that’s Markowski,” Rodman said.
We’re going to assume he doesn’t mean the U.S. Senator from Alaska. Of course, he went on to clarify.
“I mean, Rob, that guy from New England,” Rodman continued. “He talk a lot of [expletive]. I’m 50 years old, and you like 32, 33 years old. It don’t matter to me, let’s go out and do this [expletive].”
Rodman and Gronkowski both have wrestling experience — Rodman primarily in World Champion Wrestling (WCW), while Gronkowski is currently signed with the WWE and set to host WrestleMania 36 in April (which, as of this writing, is scheduled to go on amid the COVID-19 pandemic).
But who would win in a hypothetical matchup between the two? That is indeed the question. As Rodman notes, Gronkowski has the age and fitness factors on his side, but we’re not willing to count the Bulls legend out.
With any luck, one day we’ll get the chance to find out.
