Rob Gronkowski’s NFL career was put on hold last month when he broke his left forearm before the AFC Championship Game. Thankfully, Gronkowski has found another athletic outlet: Wrestling.
Gronkowski made his wrestling debut this weekend during a drunken night out in Las Vegas.
No, the NFL tight end hasn’t joined the WWE. Instead, he had a couple of drinks while partying in Las Vegas after the Super Bowl and ended up doing a Jake “The Snake” Roberts impersonation by giving one of his buddies a DDT on stage.
A DDT, for those who aren’t familiar with the work of Jake The Snake, involves an inverted headlock, an upside down body, and a two big bodies slamming hard against the mat. Need a better description? Just watch Gronkowski’s wrestling moves below.
Gronkowski should probably resting his injury during the off-season so that he’s ready to rejoin the Patriots for the 2013 season. But, you know, who can pass up the opportunity to give a buddy a DDT in front of a bunch of people?
In Gronkowski’s defense, he was wearing some sort of protective sleeve on his injured arm and there’s no doubt that he had a doctor’s note approving wrestling moves in his pocket.
