TNA wrestler's plea to use a Madonna song is scoring mainstream attention
TNA wrestler Grado (a/k/a Graeme Stevely) launched a social media campaign with the goal of convincing Madonna to allow him to use her song "Like a Prayer" as his entrance theme. "This Friday on American telly I was getting the go-ahead for my match with Al Snow from The Hydro [in Glasgow] to be shown in full, with the Like a Prayer entrance - I was over the moon," Grado wrote on Facebook.com/gradowrestler.
However, Grado said he received an email stating that the song was "denied on behalf of Madonna." He followed by launching a #SayYesMadonna campaign on Twitter. Read more on the story at BBC.co.uk.
Powell's POV: The story is obviously generating some buzz in the UK, as you can tell based on the BBC picking up the story. Grado was a popular contestant on the British Bootcamp show and he appeared on Friday's Impact Wrestling television show. Unfortunately, British Bootcamp doesn't air in North America, and TNA did a poor job of explaining who he was. That said, the campaign is fun and I can definitely see North America pro wrestling fans getting behind the cause. I'd be more excited if he was pushing for "Like a Virgin" as his entrance theme, but that's just me.
