Scotland’s biggest wrestling promotion hosted one of the year’s biggest shows, just hours before Super Bowl Sunday… and one of the country’s biggest names in the ring gave Glasgow’s American Football side a nod with a special entrance.

Grado – former Insane Championship Wrestling champion and star of hilarious BBC comedy Scot Squad – stormed to the ring at #26 in the annual Square Go match wearing a Tigers helmet and throwback jersey.

Fighting for the chance to earn a match with newly-crowned ICW champion, WWE superstar Noam Dar, Grado made short work of his opponents with a few takedowns that would have made Tigers defensive coaches proud before showing off his best Patrick Mahomes impression and launching a football into the packed crowd at SWG3.

Grado then went toe-to-toe with American hardcore wrestling star Rickey Shane Page, with his shoulder pads providing ample protection against RSP’s kendo stick shots.

Winning over legions of fans with appearances on BBC documentary Insane Fight Club – chronicling the lives of some of ICW’s biggest names – as well as performances on ITV’s WOS Wrestling and American company Impact Wrestling, Grado has become one of the biggest names not just in wrestling but Scottish entertainment itself.
