Rob Gronkowski is set to return to the NFL as part of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
What does this mean for the WWE 24/7 Title? Extra security, according to the champion.
In a social media video, Gronkowski addressed his status as WWE 24/7 Champion following the announcement that he would be coming out of retirement to rejoin Tom Brady in Tampa Bay.
"We need a lot of security. We need security everywhere. Every tunnel, every entrance, everywhere in the stadium because I'm the 24/7 WWE Title Belt Champion right now, of the world. Everyone's coming for me. My friends are coming for me, and it's special right to have it during this quarantine time because no one can find me, no one gets me. So I'm the champ for a while. I am the champ right now. And everyone is going to be coming for me. I got to have extra security. What's crazy is, the security people, it's the 24/7 belt, anyone can win it at any time. So, I better watch out. I've got to watch my own back."
