Been a while, hope you're all doing well! I basically started to despise talking about wrestling this year because of how poor this community is most of the time. So, I stopped posting because I had nothing to offer and that's just not fair to people who actually like to participate in quality discussions. Sob story aside, let's list some damn tunes. WARNING, I HAVE TO POST A BUNCH OF LINKS. PREPARE YOUR SCROLL WHEEL. 10. Doink (1993) This was actually genius, if they had capitalized on this idea in the 80's, the money would have been pouring out of Hogan's sweat glands. Unfortunately, 1993 was not the time for this character, it was looked at as one dimensional. The song itself is really creepy and dark, but I'm weird and I find it really calming and soothing. 9. Phil "The Thrill" Brooks (2011) This song was already a classic, but paring it with The Straight Edge Soup Savant was an excellent idea. I would be elated to see Punk come out to this for his UFC entrances, although I'm pretty sure he wants to remove anything WWE related from his life. 8. Sycho Sid (1996) Sid fucking sucks. He's a horrible worker, terrible promo guy and his acting skills are laughable. However! He was given an outstanding theme song during his run in WWE. It's haunting but badass at the same time, which is, I think, what they were going for with Sid. His entrance was pretty cool as well, but the bell rang, that was forgotten. 7. Brian Pillman (1996) Bit of a reoccurring theme going on here, I like darker music. Pillman's theme song is pretty crazy, it has an awesome intro of his name being said very chillingly, it then jumps in to a frantic cliche horror part and then goes in to a jazz inspired bit with a sax and piano. Unfortunately, WWE was having some serious audio issues back in the day because you can barely hear his theme song during RAW and PPV's. Kind of unforunate, it was a great theme song. 6. Mankind (1996) I seem to have a hard on for 1996. Yet another creepy track delivered by the basement dwelling Jimmy Johnston... I suppose that explains some of these. What sets this head and shoulders above the rest is that Mankind was given an outro theme song! I couldn't find a clip of it for some reason, but you should be able to find it. I LOVED that idea and I wish it was used again today. Both of his first theme's were great and they added a lot to the character. 5. Stone Cold Steve Austin (1997) Oh baby, the bass is real. I definitely prefer this version of his theme song to the mix they made in late 98, it sounded too clean. This theme song was so perfectly put together, it has different phases that pick up as the song progresses and the intro became iconic and a phenomenon of its own. 4. Taz (00) Fucking badass. I thought his ECW theme song was good, but this is outstanding. It's such a shame his career went the way it did once he went to WWE, because they hit this one out of the park. The pace is perfect and the tones used put this way over the top. Good job, Jimbo! 3. The Rock (99) Perfect intro, very well put together and an awesome guitar solo. The Rock went through 807 theme song variations from 1996 until 2011, this one is still the best. This theme song is what the late 90's WWE was all about, it was exciting and it was loud. The pace of their show dictated how you viewed and felt whist watching it and because of theme songs like this, it was super easy for people to get pumped up about the product. I feel like current theme songs like Dean Ambrose' are keeping fans from reacting like they want to. It sounds silly, but his theme song is so cheesy and farcical even that people aren't able to connect the way they would like to. I'm sure that's wrong in most of your eyes, but that's how I perceive it. 2. Kane (97) This theme song has so many layers to it, I really think it's unappreciated. The spectrum of unique sounds and effects used in this song is incredible and because Kane wasn't able to speak, they needed it to be that way. It sounds evil, dark, twisted and every other adjective you can think of related to those words. The pyro and lighting did even more to enhance Kane's entire presentation and because of that, he was taken seriously (minus the stupid powers he was given) and the crowds didn't revolt against such an unrealistic idea. 1. The Undertaker (99) Speaking of evil! Here is my all time favorite theme song! This rendition of The Undertaker's theme song is easily the greatest theme song of all time. The Undertaker's character was never considered one to be legitimately evil or scary. He was created and used in ways that were always friendly to the general audience, which is why he was always a babyface. Then 1999 rolled around and times changed, they decided to pull the trigger and turn him in to a legitimate horror heel (I made that term up). I don't need to go over all of the events, but they were doing some really dark things with his character, cutting his wrists and having Mideon drink the blood being the darkest. Of course, because of the shift in character, he needed a change in music. The old funeral dirge wasn't going to cut it anymore and at WM15, the world was introduced to his new theme song. The gong was no longer people friendly, it was now distorted and grotesque and it also involved him reciting some demonic sounding passage in Gaelic. The rest of the song featured an array of instruments, most prevalent being (what I've interpreted to be) a violin. It's an excellent theme song and I hope old Jimmy J is proud of this one, because I love it. Hope this isn't too long and I hope it was an ok read. The range of my lexicon was unfortunately exposed during this lol DON'T JUDGE ME. Cheers, Kooldip.
