As first reported by Ryan Satin on tonight’s episode of “WWE Backstage,” former Super Bowl Champion, Rob Gronkowski is “close” to finalizing a deal with WWE.

Satin reported while it is currently unknown what capacity Gronk would be used in, it is possible he could appear on Friday Night Smackdown as early as March 20th when WWE is in New Orleans.
