Rob Gronkowski is a 1980s pro wrestler in sports drink commercial

Rob Gronkowski is promoting something called BODYARMOR Sports Drink, and the ad the company released on YouTube featuring Gronkowski has several call-backs to pro wrestling in the 1980s.

Roddy Piper: This is How I Remember Hot Rod

Rhythm, Blues, BBQ and Battle Royals – Remembering Memphis Wrestling

One of the most entertaining territories of the 1970’s thru the 90’s was Memphis.
