CBS Baltimore recently interviewed WWE’s Mojo Rawley, and the prospect of Rawley’s good friend and retired NFL star Rob Gronkowski potentially joining WWE – as has been rumored for some time now – came up in the discussion.
Here’s what Mojo had to say:
“He just wrapped up a decade-long career breaking records. For every record he had he probably had as many injuries or surgeries putting his body on the line for the team and the fans. Right now he’s doing nothing. He’s going to lay low and stay off the television a little bit and heal up. He’ll reflect and make that next move and make that decision carefully.
“But in the future, we have talked about it extensively. Wrestling is something that he both loves watching, and that little bit of taste he had in the ring with me at WrestleMania a couple years ago with me got him all fired up. So, he’s ready to do something at some point.”
Another interesting note from the interview was Rawley touching on the recent reinvention of his character:
“You’re always reinventing yourself and looking for what’s new and what you haven’t done before. We did the over-the-top, hyped-up, amped-up, crazy kind of character and now you kind of focus more on the reflective self. The man-in-the-mirror type of thing. I’m switching it up. It’s the exact opposite of what I’ve been, and it’s refreshing, and it’s been fun.”
