Newly-minted Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski may be done with WWE, but there's some unfinished business to resolve first - namely his immediate future with the promotion.

At WrestleMania 36, Gronkowski became the WWE 24/7 champion. But now that he's back in the NFL, he'll need to give it up quickly.

So will we seen Gronkowski in the ring to defend the belt? According to ProFootballTalk, a source said that he is "done with wrestling for now."

Gronkowski's agent Drew Rosenhaus confirmed that the three-time Super Bowl champion will honor his NFL contract. However, he'll have to lose the 24/7 title at some point - whether through a match or just giving up the title.

The WWE released a statement about Gronk's decision to make an NFL comeback. The wrestling federation said Gronk need to be prepared to defend his title "anytime, anywhere."

As former WWE 24/7 Title champion Riddick Moss (no relation to Randy Moss) learned the hard way back in March, all it takes is one smart wrestler sneaking up behind you to get the 1-2-3.

For all we know, Gronkowski could lose the belt while he's signing his new new NFL contract.

Gronkowski signed with WWE earlier this year on a short-term deal after making numerous cameos for the company.

He won the 24/7 Title at WrestleMania 36 by leaping off a stand onto a crowd of wrestlers, and pinning longtime friend Mojo Rawley to win the belt.

Is this truly the last we've seen of Rob Gronkowski in the WWE?
