WWE’s Becky Lynch Fired Some Shots At Rob Gronkowski And I Smell A Match In The Works
After months of speculation, Rob Gronkowski hopped on Instagram last weekend to announce his NFL career had finally come to an end after nine seasons with the New England Patriots.

It all started at 20 years old on stage at the NFL draft when my dream came true, and now here I am about to turn 30 in a few months with a decision I feel is the biggest of my life so far. I will be retiring from the game of football today. I am so grateful for the opportunity that Mr. Kraft and Coach Belichick gave to me when drafting my silliness in 2010. My life experiences over the last 9 years have been amazing both on and off the field. The people I have meet, the relationships I have built, the championships I have been apart of, I just want to thank the whole New England Patriots organization for every opportunity I have been giving and learning the great values of life that I can apply to mine. Thank you to all of Pats Nation around the world for the incredible support since I have been apart of this 1st class organization. Thank you for everyone accepting who I am and the dedication I have put into my work to be the best player I could be. But now its time to move forward and move forward with a big smile knowing that the New England Patriots Organization, Pats Nation, and all my fans will be truly a big part of my heart for rest of my life. It was truly an incredible honor to play for such a great established organization and able to come in to continue and contribute to keep building success. To all my current and past teammates, thank you for making each team every year special to be apart of. I will truly miss you guys. Cheers to all who have been part of this journey, cheers to the past for the incredible memories, and a HUGE cheers to the uncertain of whats next.
Last year, Gronk revealed he’d only purchased a single thing with the $60 million in salary money he collected while playing for the Patriots, so while he’s basically set for life, no one really thinks we’ve seen the last of the world’s biggest fan of the number 69.
Following his announcement, one sportsbook posted odds concerning what the former (it still hurts to write that) player is going to do with his life now that he’s hung up his cleats, and while you’ll make a sizeable return on your investment if he decides to become a male stripper, the powers that be seem to think “professional wrestler” will be his next job title.
It wouldn’t be the first time Gronk has stepped into the ring—during Wrestlemania 33, he left the stands to help out his buddy Mojo Rawley.
I personally enjoyed the moment but it appears not everyone was a fan.
WWE’s Becky Lynch—who will be headlining Wrestlemania this year in a triple threat match against Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair—recently spoke with TMZ Sports and revealed she doesn’t think Gronk has paid his dues.
Here’s what she had to say:
“Wouldn’t that be nice to never have done anything in wrestling and just go into Wrestlemania? I would love that.
Some of us almost get fired and have to work our way and scratch and claw, and then we come to the main event. Other people are just, ‘Here you go, here’s your debut match, WrestleMania. See you at WrestleMania.’”
I smell a mixed tag team match in the works! Don’t let us down, Mr. McMahon.
