Rob Gronkowski is no longer WWE 24/7 Champion after losing the title to R-Truth on last night’s episode of Monday Night RAW.

Despite signing with WWE this past March, he has been granted his release according to Raj Giri of Wrestling Inc.

According to a source familiar with the situation, Gronkowski had a release clause in his contract that he exercised since he is returning to the NFL to play with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this upcoming season.

According to the report, Gronkowski was expected to work a match at this year’s SummerSlam pay-per-view in August.

While he is no longer obligated to perform in WWE, he does have a non-compete clause that doesn’t allow him to work with any other wrestling organization,
