Trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble...


Entrance themes have never been more of an important part of a wrestler's performance than they are in the modern era of professional wrestling.

A great character requires a great theme, a song to set the tone. From cheesy classics like Real American and Sexy Boy to Ric Flair and Daniel Bryan's orchestral standards, the opening seconds of an iconic entrance theme have created some of wrestling's most celebrated moments.

Some have parlayed these songs into a career, while others were exposed when the song finished and the grappling began.

Here are ten cases of talents whose entrance theme was infinitely more popular with wrestling fans than they were.
