Now that Rob Gronkowski has officially retired from the NFL, rumors are swirling about what will come next for the Hall of Fame tight end.

Among the things being mentioned is a career in professional wrestling. Gronkowski is an avid WWE fan and seems like a natural fit.

One WWE star doesn't appear to be happy about the rumors, though.

Becky Lynch, a 32-year-old WWE star from Ireland, spoke to TMZ Sports about the idea of Gronkowski jumping right into the spotlight.

"Wouldn't that be nice to never have done anything in wrestling and just go into Wrestlemania? I would love that," she said.

Lynch isn't a big fan of Ronda Rousey, who also made a seamless jump from another sport into WWE stardom.

"Some of us almost get fired and have to work our way and scratch and claw, and then we come to the main event," Lynch added.

"Other people are like here you go, here's your debut match at Wrestlemania ... see you at Wrestlemania."

That's a fair point, but Gronk would do big numbers as a wrestler, and there's no arguing that.
