Forty minutes remain until the main card commences, but the action is already underway at WWE WrestleMania 33.

The pre-show included Neville vs. Austin Aries and the annual Andre The Giant Battle Royal.

Neville won the opening match, while Mojo Rawley claimed victory in the Battle Royal.

Said Battle Royal included involvement from Rob Gronkowski.

Late in the match, Jinder Mahal taunted the Patriots tight end, who was sitting at ringside (and cheering for Rawley).

The taunting, which included stealing Gronk’s drink and throwing the empty cup back in his face, prompted Gronkowski to make his way into the ring. Gronkowski decked Mahal with a huge shoulder block, before allowing Rawley to complete the final eliminations (Killian Dain and Jinder Mahal).

Rawley and Gronkowski subsequently celebrated the victory in the ring.
