Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski talked about reviewing his future — a hint at retirement, perhaps, or just a contract ploy? — in the aftermath of the Patriots’ 41-33 loss to Philadelphia in Super Bowl LII.

World Wrestling Entertainment apparently was listening carefully.

Gronkowski, 28, might be offered a deal similar to former UFC star Ronda Rousey, according to Dave Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer newsletter.

Gronkowski, who was part of Wrestlemania last year and also reportedly has been wooed by Hollywood to pursue an acting career, has had numerous back and forearm surgeries and suffered a concussion in the AFC Championship game against Jacksonville last season.
