10 Incredible Stories Behind Famous Wrestling Themes

Honourable Mention: Michael Hayes Sings The Big Show's Theme

Best known as part of The Fabulous Freebirds, Michael 'P.S' Hayes is a member of the WWE creative team these days, but has always had a close association with the world of music. In fact, the link is so close that many within the industry credit Hayes for being the one to popularise rock music as effective in greeting the arrival of wrestlers.

When Paul Wight made his way to the then-WWF in 1999, the company wanted a suitably big-sounding track to herald his imminent appearance. This is where Hayes came in, amazingly recording the vocals for Show's initial theme with the federation. That's some set of lungs, Michael!

WWE would later replace the first format with a new version, performed by the rock band, Brand New Sin, but it doesn't really have the overall punch that's audible in the song recorded by Hayes.
