R-Truth took the 24/7 title from Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski on Monday after attacking the three-time Super Bowl champion outside his home while posing as a landscaper mulching his yard.

Gronkowski and an assistant went to the tight end's Foxborough, Massachusetts, backyard to film a dance that the NFL star planned to put on TikTok. The tight end then noticed the landscaper but did not recognize him as R-Truth.  

Eventually, Gronkowski figured out who it was. But by that point, it was too late. R-Truth tackled Gronkowski, and the assistant revealed a referee shirt before counting out a pin.

As the assistant noted, Gronkowski's time with WWE will hit the pause button after the former New England Patriot ends his one-year retirement and joins the Bucs.

Both Gronkowski and R-Truth hold 24/7 title records: Gronkowski is the owner of the longest-ever reign, while R-Truth is now a 36-time 24/7 champion, marking the most occasions as the champ.

Gronk initially won the 24/7 title at WrestleMania 36 after pinning his friend, Mojo Rawley.
