John Cena recently spoke to ESPN and one topic of conversation was the New England Patriot’s Rob Gronkowski. Cena stated his opinion that the tight end would be the perfect fit for WWE.
“I think he’d be a great WWE superstar. I really do,” Cena said. “I think he’s got this unbelievable energy and infectious electricity about him. I think if he wants to take off the pads and step in the arena, I think he’ll feel right at home,” Cena replied.
John’s point of view likely comes as no surprise to many fans, who have seen Gronkowski in a WWE ring before. Though Rob has never competed in an actual match for Vince McMahon, he has gotten physical on more than one occasion.
Cena also spoke about The Patriots as a team and their long term success in the NFL.
“I love the long-lens aspect of success over the long term. Time under tension. When you’re good, you can have a good season and be forgotten. When you’re good over a long period of time, that’s amazing.
There has been no indication that Gronkowski is considering a new career in WWE. There’s also been no word of interest on WWE’s part. But pro wrestling fans have learned to never say never, especially when it comes to WWE.
