Pats star Gronkowski invades WWE WrestleMania

Not content with sitting back and watching WWE WrestleMania 33 ringside, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski made his presence known.

The NFL star made a surprise appearance at the annual blockbuster wrestling event at Camping World Stadium in Orlando on Sunday to help out close friend Mojo Rawley.

Watching ringside with a drink in hand, Gronkowski - a two-time Super Bowl champion and four-time Pro Bowler - was confronted and had his own water tossed at him by Jinder Mahal.

It was not a wise decision as Gronkowski jumped the barrier, made his way past security and lined up a three-point stance before nailing Mahal with a shoulder block - a move Pats fans have grown accustomed to - as he showed no signs of the back injury that cut his season short in 2016.

Rawley - who spent time with the Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals - went on to win the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.
