R-Truth wins WWE 24/7 title from Rob Gronkowski


NFL star Rob Gronkowski is no longer WWE 24/7 Champion.

A 24/7 title change aired on tonight's episode of Raw, with R-Truth pinning Gronkowski to once again become champion. The story for the title change was that Truth was disguised as a gardener while Gronkowski was recording a TikTok video at his house. Gronkowski's friend who was helping him record the video revealed that he was wearing a referee shirt, then Truth rolled Gronkowski up to win the title.

Gronkowski's friend explained what he did by saying that Gronkowski needs to be serious because he has a new career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers getting started.

Gronkowski had held the 24/7 title since winning it from Mojo Rawley at WrestleMania 36 night two. He was the longest-reigning 24/7 Champion since WWE introduced the title.

Gronkowski was the host of both nights of this year's WrestleMania. It was said on WWE Backstage in March that Gronkowski was "deep in talks with WWE and close to finalizing a deal."

In April it was revealed that Gronkowski, who had been retired from the NFL since the end of the 2018-2019 season, was making his return to football. He was traded from the New England Patriots to Buccaneers, reuniting with his former teammate Tom Brady.
