WWE seems to have lost its knack when it comes to creating iconic entrance music. Think about it; what was the last theme that the company created that will stand the test of time? There have been a few decent stabs, but decent stabs don’t find their way into the history books, especially in the world of professional wrestling.
Entrance music is very important in wrestling. There have been numerous examples over the years of a character being fleshed out by their theme, endearing a performer to the crowd through nothing more than a vocal hook, a chunky riff, some strategic chanting and the rest. This is supposed to be the sound of a warrior entering battle, and if the war cry is super catchy then so be it.
There are plenty of current WWE superstars that find themselves in the doldrums when it comes to entrance themes. Some of them are suffering from past changes, while others are saddled with music that has absolutely nothing to do with their current gimmicks. Fixing entrance themes isn’t difficult, but it is important.
Born in the middle of Wales in the middle of the 1980's, John can't quite remember when he started watching wrestling but he has a terrible feeling that Dino Bravo was involved. Now living in Prague, John spends most of his time trying to work out how Tomohiro Ishii still stands upright. His favourite wrestler of all time is Dean Malenko, but really it is Repo Man. He is the author of 'An Illustrated History of Slavic Misery', the best book about the Slavic people that you haven't yet read. You can get that and others from www.poshlostbooks.com.
