Rob Gronkowski is set to return to football this season. And he might be taking the 24/7 Title with him.
On Tuesday it was reported that Gronkowski had an interest in returning to the NFL after retiring in March 2019. Things moved quickly on Tuesday, with Gronkowski reportedly expressing his desire to join Tom Brady in Tampa Bay while having one year remaining on his contract with New England. In a matter of minutes, it was confirmed that Gronkowski had been traded from New England to Tampa Bay.
As for what this means for the WWE 24/7 Title, as of now, Gronkowski remains the champion. But given the rules that come with the title, we could see a title change on the gridiron.

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.
Gronkowski won the WWE 24/7 Title at WrestleMania 36 when he pinned his friend Mojo Rawley. Gronk reportedly signed a contract with WWE in March 2020, though terms of the deal were not disclosed.
