WWE SmackDown: Rob Gronkowski Debuts, Sets up Corbin vs Elias at WrestleMania

One of tonight's biggest attractions was the debut of Rob Gronkowski, who made waves last week when he announced that not only would he be hosting WrestleMania 36 but had also signed with WWE. The former NFL superstar made his big debut tonight, coming out with his own merchandise (a Gronk shirt), theme music, and entrance graphics, and after all was said and done he hit the ring for a program set up with Baron Corbin for WrestleMania.

Gronk was first introduced by his friend Mojo Rawley, and the two were hyped in the ring. They were then interrupted by Corbin, who flung a few insults Gronk's way.

After that Corbin was interrupted by Elias, and once all of them were in the ring they managed to set up Corbin for a fall as Mojo got on the ground and Gronk pushed Corbin over him, knocking his legs out from under him.

Corbin was pretty upset about the whole thing, and we can imagine why. You can see how some of this played out in the video above.

The two seem destined for a match at WrestleMania 36, and we are definitely interested to see how it all plays out.

You can find the official description for tonight's SmackDown below.
