Florida, April 6: Former New England Patriots and NFL star Rob Gronkowski has made a successful transition away from American football, winning his first WWE belt at WrestleMania 36.
Gronkowski – who retired from the NFL in 2018 – made his WWE debut at WrestleMania almost three years ago, while the 30-year-old appeared on Smackdown for the first time last month.
WWE is continuing with events behind closed doors at its performance centre in Orlando, Florida, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Gronkowski captured the 24/7 Championship during the second night of the event's broadcast on Sunday (April 5), in front of no fans.
The three-time Super Bowl champion and five-time Pro Bowler pinned Mojo Rawley after a huge stage dive to become a titleholder.
