Former New England Patriot star Rob Gronkowski won the “24/7” title at Wrestlemania 36.
The former star tight end pinned his friend Mojo Rawley on Sunday to become the 24/7 champion on the second night of the two-day WrestleMania 36 at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Fla. The event was held on a closed set with only essential personnel due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Gronkowski, who was the host of the event, nearly won the belt – which can be defended anytime and anywhere — on Saturday night. Instead, Rawley broke up the 30-year-old Fox Sports football analyst’s pin attempt on R-Truth to claim the belt.
Rawley’s title reign was short lived after Gronkowski declared early in the broadcast Sunday he was going after the championship. Gronkowski ended up jumping off a small balcony into a large group of wrestlers who were chasing after Rawley. After the wipe out, it was Gronkowski who pinned the champ and ran off with the belt.
