Jason Cummings took on pro wrestler Grado in the Hibernian canteen, and it's theatre of the highest order

We're not sure about his nickname though…

Jason Cummings has scored 21 goals in 36 games for Scottish Championship side Hibernian this season, but on this evidence there’s an alternative career out there for the 21-year-old.

At the Hibs training ground, the team were paid a visit by professional wrestler and actor Grado, who Cummings saw fit to challenge during lunch time.

The result is two minutes of pure entertainment.

The first thing that comes to our attention is Cummings’ nickname: “CumDog.” The less said about that the better.

Cummings marches into the canteen to the tune of Madonna’s Like A Prayer (obviously) before challenging Grado, who looks to be in the middle of his dinner. Watch out for the kitchen, fellas.

After a back and forth contest, it’s Cummings who (somewhat dubiously) triumphs, sparking wild celebrations.

And it looks like the beef is all but over.

At least wait until the season’s over Jason. Hibs have got a Scottish Cup semi-final to look forward to this weekend, and could probably use their top goalscorer.
