Becky Lynch has mocked her own WWE NXT debut in reaction to Rob Gronkowski’s SmackDown debut from last Friday night.
Rob Gronkowski made his SmackDown debut this past Friday night, coming down to the ramp to join his friend, Mojo Rawley, in the middle of the ring.
On his way to the ring, Gronk’s dancing caught the attention of WWE fans on social media, and his real-life party boy personality has already split the opinion of fans.
Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch was even watching the former NFL star’s SmackDown debut, and she said on Twitter that it reminded of her own debut during her time in NXT way back in 2014.
The Man tweeted: “Imagine doing a silly dance down to the ring on your debut.”
Lynch did her own dance during her NXT debut back in June 2014 before her match against Summer Rae. WWE did everything they could to make sure fans knew she was from Ireland by dressing her in green and gold and having her Irish dance her way to the ring.
The Man was victorious in her debut, and Gronk made a big impact in his SmackDown debut last Friday as well.
The former Patriots star cut a decent promo in the ring alongside Rawley, Elias, and King Corbin. He shoved Corbin as Rawley was kneeling behind him, tripping Corbin, and he also proposed a WrestleMania match between Corbin and Elias, which was later made official.
Gronk will be hosting WrestleMania weekend when it airs on the WWE Network on April 4-5. However, according to reports, the event itself will actually be recorded next week at the Performance Center on Wednesday and Thursday.
Lynch will also be at this year’s Showcase of Immortals, as she will be defending the Raw Women’s Championship against Shayna Baszler.
Gronk probably won’t have a match at WrestleMania, but he’s expected to make his in-ring debut for WWE at some point this year.
