With WrestleMania coming up on April 2 in Orlando, FL, wrestler Mojo Rawley needs to get hyped for what is one of the year’s biggest WWE events. And who better to bring along than New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski?

Rawley, whose real name is Dean Muhtadi, is a close friend of the Gronkowski family, and was an undrafted player for the Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals before becoming a professional wrestler.

Hawley posted a short video on Twitter Wednesday night of the duo hyping each other up, and it’s brilliant.

“Mojo, next week,” Gronk said, “we gotta get ready!”

Gronk then followed that up with a few hard slaps to Rawley’s chest, monstrously roaring out, “Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go!”

How can anyone not run through a brick wall after watching this?

Gronk also posted the same video on his Instagram account below.

Dwight Howard reveals that he ate around 24 candy bars a day for almost a decade

Dwight Howard reveals that he ate around 24 candy bars a day for almost a decade

NBA All-Star Dwight Howard is a world-class athlete with a past addiction that left his legs and fingers shaking, affected his ability on the court, and left his family seriously worried about his well-being.

No, he wasn’t addicted to drugs, alcohol, or any illegal substances. He was high on candy—24 candy bars a day, to be exact.

In a new feature story from ESPN, Howard revealed how for almost a full decade he suffered from this addiction. Despite his physique, Howard ate virtually anything: Skittles, Starbursts, Snickers, Twizzlers, Kit-Kats, and his favorite, Reese’s Pieces, totaling about twenty-four candy bars per day.

It wasn’t until he was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers that Howard kicked the habit, as he began working with the team’s nutritionist, as the profile reveals:

By February’s All-Star break, it was time for a full-blown intervention, and Dr. Cate Shanahan, the Lakers’ nutritionist, led the charge, speaking to Howard by phone from her office in Napa, California. Howard’s legs tingled, he complained, but she noticed he was having trouble catching passes too, as if his hands were wrapped in oven mitts…. Shanahan, with two decades of experience in the field, knew Howard possessed a legendary sweet tooth, and she suspected his consumption of sugar was causing a nerve dysfunction called dysesthesia, which she’d seen in patients with prediabetes.

Ultimately, Shanahan had to understand the depths of his addiction, which led to some frightening discoveries:

After calls with his bodyguard, chef, and a personal assistant, she uncovered a startling fact: Howard had been scarfing down about two dozen chocolate bars’ worth of sugar every single day for years, possibly as long as a decade…. He’d eat them before lunch, after lunch, before dinner, after dinner, and like any junkie he had stashes all over—in his kitchen, his bedroom, his car, a fix always within reach. She told his assistants to empty his house, and they hauled out his monstrous candy stash in boxes—yes, boxes, plural.

We’re glad Dwight Howard got over his strange addiction—for health’s sake—but, wow, that is a lot of candy. Read the entire feature here.

The Rock Hit a Golf Ball 25 Yards Short of the Guinness World Record

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson just might be the most electrifying man in all of sports entertainment.

The highest earning movie star in Hollywood posted a picture to Instagram of him driving a golf ball while on the set of the HBO show Ballers.

The Rock claimed to have driven the ball 490 yards, which is just 25 yards short of the Guinness World Record of 515 yards hit by Mike Austin at the 1974 National Seniors Open Championship.

But with no video, The Rock may have a hard time proving to golf enthusiasts the validity of his claims. Next time, make sure to provide video!

There Were Two Must-See Knockouts To Watch From UFC London

There Were Two Must-See Knockouts To Watch From UFC London

UFC Fight Night 2017 went down this past Saturday in London, and it did not disappoint, giving us a fair share of dome-rattling knockouts.

The best was Marc ‘The Bonecrusher’ Diakiese’s right hand knockout of Teemu Packalen. Diakiese, who improved his record to 12-0, threw two stunning spinning teakwood kicks within the first five seconds of the fight, forcing Packalen to strike immediately at close range. This proved to be a fatal mistake, as Diakiese dropped Packalen with the next punch, sending him to the floor sleeping.

The fight lasted all but 30 seconds, but I’m sure for Packalen it felt much longer.

Although, these were the best knockouts of the night, there was one other great moment.

After nearly 15 years in the cage, bantamweight and featherweight Brad Pickett, hung up his gloves. In what would be Pickett’s last fight, he was knocked out by a spinning head kick from opponent, Marlon Vera.

Dana White Says McGregor Is Waiting For His Kid To Be Born Before He Fights Again

Dana White Says McGregor Is Waiting For His Kid To Be Born Before He Fights Again

By this point, everyone is tired of hearing Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather. For awhile now the trash talk between the two sides has amounted to absolutely nothing, and every word uttered is seemingly fruitless. But in recent weeks, the momentum has finally picked up a bit.

SEE ALSO: Floyd Mayweather and Dana White Exchange Words Over McGregor Fight

Wednesday night, UFC President Dana White went on Conan, to say that he believes the fight will happen.

“I do think it’s going to happen. I think it’s going to be a tough deal, because, obviously, there are a lot of egos involved in this deal and a lot of people, so that always makes it tougher. (But) on the flip side, there’s so much money involved, I just don’t see how it doesn’t happen.”

So, there we go. Even Dana White has changed his mind about this fight. If you remember, not too long ago back in February, White called the possibility of the McGregor vs. Mayweather boxing match “the stupidest thing ever.” Which makes us wonder, what made him change his mind?

As far as the date of a possible McGregor vs. Mayweather bout, it seems as though at least until McGregor’s son is born, nothing will be set in stone.

White had a few comments about this during a recent TMZ Sports video, “He’s having a baby, and we really haven’t talked about fighting,” said White.

You can watch the entire interview below.

As for now, the saga continues.

Sylvester Stallone Nearly Killed Himself With ‘Rocky III’ Diet

Sylvester Stallone Nearly Killed Himself With 'Rock III' Diet

Sylvester Stallone took to Instagram again on Sunday, posting a photo of him standing on his head from Rocky III. In the caption, Stallone explained the rationale behind the photo, and it’s actually quite scary.

Just for fun… A flashback from Rocky three. Between rounds I would get lightheaded and quite exhausted. I was on a very high protein diet which did not provide Much physical or mental energy. During the period I only ate very small portions of oatmeal cookies made with brown rice and up to 25 cups of coffee a day with honey and a couple of scoops of tuna fish. Sounds incredible right? At the time my body fat got down to 2.9 which is a really dangerous level. I may have looked pretty good on the outside but inside it was very dangerous thing to do. But I wanted the movie to be about change. How people have to adapt to different challenges because if they don’t they will be conquered. I will always believe the adaptation is the key to survival and that’s what this story was all about … and while, getting smashed by Superstrong,CLUBBER LANG continuously four months of rehearsal plus the fight, tended to wear a person out so I would literally go to the corner between rounds, when I wasn’t directing and try to get some blood back into my head so I could carry-on with the complicated fight choreography … It’s funny, I never knew this picture existed!

Floyd Mayweather is ‘Coming Out Of Retirement’ To Fight Conor McGregor

Floyd Mayweather is ‘Coming Out Of Retirement’ To Fight Conor McGregor

Floyd Mayweather has been touring the United Kingdom, which you may also know is close to McGregor’s home in Ireland. To no surprise, McGregor’s name was mentioned quite a few times.

The biggest story to come out of Mayweather’s tour of the UK is that he has officially announced he is out of retirement in order to pursue a fight with McGregor, telling the UFC champion to fight him in June.

“Today, I’m officially out of retirement for Conor McGregor,” Mayweather said in an interview with FightHype.com, “We don’t need to waste no time. We need to make this sh*t happens quickly. Let’s get it on in June.”

SEE ALSO: Floyd Mayweather Offered McGregor $15 Million For Fight

Mayweather retired from the sport of boxing in September of 2015 after his victory over Andre Berto, moving his career record to 49-0. Since that time, Mayweather wanted no part of returning to the ring, until McGregor’s name was brought to the spotlight.

“For Conor McGregor, I’m coming out of retirement, just to fight Conor McGregor. I don’t want to hear no more excuses about the money, about the UFC. Sign the paper with the UFC so you can fight me in June. Simple and plain. Let’s fight in June.”

SEE ALSO: The Mayweather Vs. McGregor Saga Continues

Though McGregor has said he expects his next fight to be in the boxing ring, the two-time champion is currently on a break from fighting as the birth of his first born son is expected in May.

So, June might be too early, but who knows? Maybe “Money” (pun intended) will influence his timeline to move up, as it is looking like the biggest pay-per-view event of all time.
