Former WWE 24/7 Champion Rob Gronkowski Retires From The NFL Again WWE

Former WWE 24/7 Champion and WrestleMania 36 host Rob Gronkowski has finally called it quits from the NFL again.

On June 21, the four-time Superbowl Champion, Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end posted on social media to announce his second retirement from the National Football League.

Gronkowski wrote the following:

In college, I was asked to write about a dream job opportunity that I wanted to pursue and where the location would be. Every time I had to write about my future, no matter what, I picked being a professional football player. For that assignment though, we had to pick the location. So I wrote that I wanted to play in Tampa for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, for many reasons, the sunny weather being #1. I completely forgot about writing this report until 2 years ago when I had the opportunity to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And let me tell ya, the journey in Tampa over the last 2 years has blown away what I originally wrote about in college, big time. And for this, I want to thank the whole entire first class Buccaneers organization for an amazing ride, trusting me to come back to play and help build a championship team. I will now be going back into my retirement home, walking away from football again with my head held high knowing I gave it everything I had, good or bad, every time I stepped out on the field. The friendships and relationships I have made will last forever, and I appreciate every single one of my teammates and coaches for giving everything they had as well. From retirement, back to football and winning another championship and now back to chilling out, thank you to all. Buccaneers –‍ fans, the Krewe, without you guys, none of this is possible, all of ya brought it every game, thank you for all you do. Cheers to what’s next, maybe sailing the seas –‍ Arghhhhhh!!

Gronkowski finishes his career with 621 receptions for 9,286 yards and 92 touchdowns. He is highly regarded as one of the greatest tight ends in league history.

Known as Gronk, he won four Superbowl titles, three with the New England Patriots and one with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Gronk first retired from the NFL in March 2019 for the Patriots before returning in April 2020 to team back up with Tom Brady for the Bucs.

In WWE, Rob Gronkowski won the 24/7 Championship and a Slammy Award for Celebrity of the Year in 2020. He also hosted WrestleMania 36.
