The fourth ever Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 33 went to SmackDown Live’s Mojo Rawley on Sunday night, with a major – and unexpected – assist from New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.
After beating down on one half of The Hype Bros., Raw’s Jinder Mahal walked over to Gronkowski – who was sitting ringside in support of his close friend, Rawley – and grabbed his drink, then tossed it at the chest of the two-time Super Bowl champion.
This enraged Gronk, who stepped over the barrier and into the ring, despite security and WWE officials trying to prevent that from happening.
With Mahal distracted, Gronk got into a three-point stance near the corner of the squared circle, rushed towards him and delivered a vicious shoulder tackle.
The battle royal eventually came down to Rawley and Mahal, with Rawley knocking Mahal off the apron to claim the victory before celebrating with his football chum.
