A shaken character that is shaken again takes a wound (extras are just taken out) as long as the second shaken result comes from a physical attack of some kind (not a Test of Wills or other maneuver).

When a character grapples another character with a raise, the defender is shaken. As this is a physical attack, can this produce a wound?

The rule says (SWD, p73):

Grappling is an opposed Fighting roll that causes no damage. If the attacker wins, he’s entangled his foe. With a raise, his foe is also Shaken.

Of course, the attacker may attempt to damage their victim in subsequent rounds as long as the defender is still grappled/entangled.
