The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ tight end (that’s still weird to type) dropped the titled to R-Truth in his own backyard while filming a TikTok video.
As Gronk preps himself for a TikTok dance routine, R-Truth waits in the background dressed as a landscaper.
Gronk being distracted filming “the most viral TikTok dance ever” was all R-Truth needed to capture the gold.

Gronk initially won the 24/7 championship at WrestleMania 36 after pinning his best buddy Mojo Rawley.
As of June 2, 2020, there have been 97 recognized reigns between 36 different people.
R-Truth has the most 24/7 reigns at 36 and also has the record for the longest combined reign at 166+ days (official recognized as 153 days by WWE).
The WWE jokingly warned Gronk to be ready to defend the title at any moment, even in the middle of touchdown celebration.
With Gronk no longer holding wrestling gold, the future Hall of Famer will set his sights on the pending NFL season.
