POSSIBLE NEW AEW SIGNINGS
AEW has teased a pair of new signings ahead of their ticket event next week. Tweeting early this morning, the official account posted a .gif of Matt and Nick Jackson appearing to offer Rey Fenix and Penta El Zero AEW contracts. Appearing at a McAloon Productions event, ‘Come Hell or High Water’, the Buck’s made their way to the ring to offer the pair the contacts.

WWE HALL OF FAMER MAKES WWE IN-RING RETURN
‘Double J’ Jeff Jarrett is set to make his return to RAW this Monday night for the first time since 1999. Jeff returned to the WWE at last Sunday’s Royal Rumble event, entering number 2. In entering when he did, the Hall of Famer cut off Elias’s opening song, this was compounded with Jarrett appearing on the next night’s RAW to confront Elias again. Jarrett will be accompanied by Road Dogg when he faces the former drifter.

GRONK TO WWE?
Triple H has renewed speculation that current New England Patriots tight end, Rob Gronkowski could be heading to the WWE when he retires from football. Speaking to SI.com’s Justin Barrasso, Triple H said:
“Gronk has mentioned WWE before, that he loves it and said had so much fun doing it. I don’t know if it’s something he’d be seriously interested in, but that’s how the conversation started with Ronda Rousey, too. Certainly, the door is open for him at WWE.”
Gronk famously appeared at WrestleMania 33, helping a friend, and former teammate Mojo Rawley win that year’s Andrea the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. Speaking of Mojo and Rob’s friendship, Hunter went on:
“Rob is very close with one of our stars, Mojo Rawley. We’ve met a few times, and he’s actually come down to the Performance Center and even done stuff with us at WrestleMania. He’s a great guy, an incredible player, and it’s hard not to root for him. I’ll be watching him, but that’s also because my wife is a massive Patriots fan.”
Gronk is set to appear later today as the Patriots are taking on the Rams at Superbowl LIII.
