Rob Gronkowski might have to become a two-way player in the NFL if he wants to keep one of his many titles he’s won in his athletic career.
We’re referring to a championship belt, specifically, as the football tight end is still under contract by the WWE, despite his decision to make a return to football.
Vince McMahon, the CEO of the WWE, clarified what’s expected of the current 24/7 World Champion, with rules that the reigning titleholder must defend his title if challenged at any time.
“Congratulations to Rob Gronkowski, the current WWE 24/7 Champion, on his return to football,” the statement said, per Field Yates. “Per the rules of the 24/7 title, Gronk must defend his championship at all times in any location. He could be celebrating a touchdown pass from #TomBrady…anytime, anywhere.”

If you can get into the WWE or not, this would be electric content.
