Rob Gronkowski left WWE to make a return to pro football. James Harrison saw this move coming, but he didn’t foresee such an unexpected trade to Tampa Bay.
Gronkowski is now a Tampa Bay Buccaneer which will reunite him with Tom Brady. Gronk’s return to the NFL was something that James Harrison said he was talking about when they were doing a commercial together six months ago as he told TMZ.
“I knew then that he was going to come back [to the NFL]. He was talking about it. He was itching then. He was feeling a lot better.”
Harrison appears on FS1 as a football analyst after his career that saw him win two Super Bowls with the Steelers. He is also slated to have a role on Starz’s upcoming wrestling show “Heels.”
James Harrison also went through multiple retirements himself as he played with Gronk toward the end of his career. He knows a thing or two about the passion for football and he could tell it never left Rob Gronkowski.
