Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard and Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski are being added as playable characters in WWE 2K Battlegrounds.

Lillard will be featured in the video game as "Laheem Lillard" beginning next month, while Gronkowski - dubbed "Gronkster" - will be added Tuesday.

Both athletes have connections to the WWE universe. Gronkowski hosted WrestleMania 36 earlier this year and won the WWE 24/7 Championship at the event, while Lillard - a big wrestling fan - recently honored WWE legend Ric Flair with a new version of his signature sneaker.
