'Marked for deletion' - Rangers star ends up involved in hilarious Twitter feud with WWE star
Rangers star Jason Cummings has found himself in the middle of a comical Twitter feud between professional wrestlers Matt Hardy and Grado.
The Gers striker famously “wrestled” Scottish sensation Grado in the build-up to the 2016 Scottish Cup final between Hibs and Rangers – with the clip going viral on social media – and Cummings has since struck up a friendship with the Ayrshire grappler.
In a recent interview with RangersTV, Cummings joked how Grado had messaged him prior to his Ibrox switch threatening to “put him through a table” if he didn’t sign for the Gers and revealed the pair were now a tag team and would be “hopefully going for” WWE legends the Hardy Boyz next.

Somehow this managed to get the attention of American-based Matt Hardy – who alongside brother Jeff became famous in the 90’s as high-flying duo the Hardy Boyz – who retweeted the video and claimed Cummings and Grado had been “marked for deletion.”
They have now been marked for DELETION! https://t.co/KsKprirToz

If things weren’t odd enough, they took an even more comical twist when lifelong Gers fan Grado got involved and challenged Hardy to show up at Rangers’ Auchenhowie training base to face off instead – although in a slightly more Scottish vernacular.
#HooseHardy is a trek…Please use Vanguard1 to transport yourselves to Murray Park the morra for a roll aboot the canteen flare, The Cum-Dog And El Grado shall be waiting ????⚪️????

With Rangers facing Ayr United in the Scottish Cup on Sunday, it’s unlikely Cummings will be showing up on WWE’s flagship show Monday Night Raw anytime soon – although as Wayne Rooney showed a few years ago when he appeared and slapped wrestler Wade Barrett after a Twitter fued between the pair – an appearance from “Cumdog” when the wrestling giants return to the Scotland in April could be a distinct possibility.
In other Rangers news, it can be revealed that a key first teamer has sensationally asked to leave after the board failed to stick to their promise of giving him a new deal during the transfer window.
