Jinder Mahal may be the only sports entity who had a wilder ride in 2017 than the Philadelphia Eagles. The former joke non-band also-ran moved to the top of the card in WWE for half of the year, but not before having a couple of infamous run-ins with New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.
It all began at WrestleMania 33, when Gronkowski interfered on behalf of one of his real-life best friends, Mojo Rawley. Gronkowski jaw-jacked with Mahal and got a beer thrown in his face, then he got on the ring and tackled the man who would soon become the Modern Day Maharaja, allowing Rawley to win the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.
Just over a week later, Gronkowski was at it again, appearing on Smackdown and once more getting into it with Mahal. This time, Gronk was the beer-flinger, and Rawley got another win over Mahal.
