Grado appeals to Madonna to allow him to use her song on Impact TV

Published 5 Comments

Grado is one of the biggest personalities in UK wrestling and that's in no small part down to his infamous entrance tune. 

He walks and dances his way to the ring accompanied by the song "Like a Prayer" by Madonna.

Safe to say it's one of the most bizarre scenes in pro-wrestling. Seeing a majority male wrestling audience singing and clapping along to his entrance is surreal. It's certainly something TNA fans will not want to miss out on.

Snubbed by Madonna 

But now Madonna has denied the wrestler from North Ayrshire, Scotland permission to use the track in a US broadcast of one of his biggest matches against nemesis Al Snow. 

So what do you think Grado has done? Well, naturally, the wrestler has taken to social media and is on a mission to make Madonna change her mind.

The #SayYesMadonna has been trending in the UK and US since the news broke last night, with outlets such as BBC, Time and TMZ all covering the story. Many Impact stars and UK wrestlers have joined the campaign as well, with wrestling fans asking what's the harm in Madonna being promoted on TNA and why would she want to stop it? 

Publicity stunt 

However, our friends at TalkTNApodcast.com have said the whole social media campaign via Facebook and Twitter could be nothing more than a huge publicity stunt using Madonna's name.

Her name and the question over will she, won't she allow one of her biggest hits to be played could just be a clever plan by TNA to drum up awareness. Combining Grado's status in UK wrestling and Madonna's popularity certainly allows TNA to generate maximum interest in Impact this Friday in the US and Sunday in the UK.

This week's show will feature the return of former Knockouts and WWE Diva's champion Mickie James involving herself in the angle with husband to be Magnus against friend turned foe, Bram. As well as the debut of Drew Galloway so Impact will want as much buzz and ratings as possible as they consider ways of tackling the WWE and their dominance of the Wrestling business.
