Anyway, I have noticed that since the debut of this year's TNA Bootcamp 2, there seems to be a groundswell of negativity towards Grado. The reason for this article is not to try and convince you of Grado's star power but to hopefully give you a little insight into why I like him (as a person) so much.
The current Al Snow staged story goes against the spirit of the TNA Bootcamp ideology, but I feel that it shouldn’t be held against Grado himself – lets face it. If you were trying to break into the mainstream, you would take the offer to go with this as well.
Last year, I got to interview Grado for our weekly show and he came over as a really genuine guy. During the interview, he was extremely personable and I defy anyone to listen to the interview and not crack at least one smile! So I contacted JSO about whether the interview would be of interest to TNAsylum and he has kindly agreed to post it.
Hopefully, if you listen, you will understand why I am hoping that he gets a (not “the”) contract at some point.
As a little addition, we also interviewed Nigel McGuiness (Desmond Wolfe) straight afterwards and Grado stuck around for the initial phone call – once again, this is comedy gold!
Please note that both interviews do contain some explicit language! Enjoy!
