WWE issued the following statement on their official Twitter account regarding the news that broke today that WrestleMania 36 host and current WWE 24/7 Champion Rob Gronkowski has been traded from the New England Patriots to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
WWE congratulated Gronkowski on the move, but issued a reminder that with him being Champion, he must defend the title at all times, teasing that Tom Brady, who joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in March 2020, could pin him to become the new Champion.
Congratulations to @RobGronkowski, the current WWE 24/7 Champion, on his return to football.
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.
