Grado has been announced as part of the Impact Wrestling UK Tour, returning to the company for the first time since 2018.
The Scot first appeared for the company in 2014, as part of the “TNA British Bootcamp” TV series.
He didn’t win the competition, but beat Al Snow in Glasgow to win a contract with the promotion.
Grado spent four years with Impact before being released, returning to the UK to continue his successful acting career in Scotland.
The former ICW World Heavyweight Champion has wrestled infrequently since leaving Impact, but is set to return to the company for a homecoming in Great Britain.
Impact announced they are coming back to the UK for the first time in nearly 8 years.
The UK Invasion tour is being touted a major British shows, with various championship matches and big stars guaranteed for the show.
British stars, such as Impact World Tag Team Champions Mark Andrews and Flash Morgan Webster, are being promoted for the show, as well as the Impact Wrestling return of Grado.
Impact is heading to O2 Academy in Glasgow, Scotland on October 26, Walker Activity Dome in Newcastle, England on October 27, and HMV Empire in Coventry, England on October 28.
Alex Shelley, Moose, Eddie Edwards, Deonna Purrazzo, Frankie Kazarian, Brian Myers, Ace Austin, Chris Bey, and Joe Hendry are advertised to wrestle on the tour, which will see them visit the O2 Academy in Glasgow, Scotland on October 26, Walker Activity Dome in Newcastle, England on October 27, and HMV Empire in Coventry, England on October 28.
Gail Kim and Tommy Dreamer are also being advertised for special appearances on the tour, although the pair likely not wrestle for Impact Wrestling.
Among these names announced include Grado, the Scottish star who has not been seen in Impact for over five years.
Grado’s last match in Impact Wrestling was on the 14th September, 2018, where he lost to Maximo in the Fronton Mexico in Mexico City, Distrito Federal.
The return of Grado to Impact was huge news, especially to the fans in Glasgow. He was a huge star in his home country, his match with Drew McIntyre being the biggest match in Scottish history.
While it has been some years since his peak, things could be looking up for Grado.
A return to Impact could be complimented by a match at AEW’s All In, if rumours of a match with Jeff Jarrett are to be believed.
