Grado Helps Announce Scotland's UEFA Euro 2024 Provisional Squad

Grado pops up in Scotland's UEFA Euro 2024 provisional squad reveal

With UEFA Euro 2024 set to get underway in just a few weeks, national teams have been announcing their provisional squads ahead of the tournament. 

Some teams have gone for elaborate set pieces to reveal their squads, including Scotland as the team's social media account posted a full 'No Scotland, No Party' video before the team was revealed on Teletext. The short video primarily focused on a party and various Scottish celebrities were shown during the celebration, including comedian Frankie Boyle, former footballer Pat Nevin, and pro wrestler Grado who ended up holding a chicken while dancing. 

The highlight of the video, however, was former Hearts, Fulham, and Southampton goalkeeper Antti Niemi in a callback to a talkSPORT moment where a caller questioned by Niemi hadn't been called up to play for Scotland. After host Arthur Albiston pointed out Niemi was Finnish, the caller uttered the famous words, "He's not finished, he's only 28." 

Beyond his pro wrestling exploits, Grado is an actor, having starred in BBC Scotland soap opera River City and Scot Squad. Grado did pop up on the AEW All In 2023 pre-show last Summer to take out Jeff Jarrett. He revealed to Cultaholic Wrestling following the event that he is hoping to have a match with Jeff Jarrett at All In 2024 on August 25.
