WWE/TNA (IWC Votes): What Are Your Favorite Entrance Themes of All Time? Results
Welcome to the results of the latest edition of "IWC Votes."
This slideshow is for the results of what all of you voted as your favorite wrestling entrance theme songs of all time.
An entrance theme is the music in which a wrestler comes to the ring too. This music can define a wrestler.
Would Shawn Michaels have worked in the beginning without "Sexy Boy"? Would DX have been popular without their catchy theme?
Thousands and thousands of entrance themes have been created over the years: Some are original pieces of work (Jim Johnson & Dale Oliver) and sometimes wrestling organizations license the music from bands and studios.
Everybody loves music and so everyone will have an opinion about music, but just like finishing moves, sometimes it's difficult to pick just one, so I figured it would be a lot easier for everyone to think of their top three.
Here are the results!
Edge: Metalingus (20 Votes)
"You think you know me." *Drums and Guitar* "On this day I see clearly, everything has come to life."
Every time these lyrics are heard, we all know who is making his way to the ring.
This song's high energy and carefree lyrics certainty suit the Rated-R superstar who used Alter Bridge's underrated piece of art for over seven years.
I don't know about you, but I can't picture Edge using anything else for an entrance theme. This song will always be synonymous with the character.
"Exciting, driving, rockstar cool, also reached iconic status. Perfectly fit Edge's character, whether heel or face. Add the smoke and pyro, just personifies the man. If it fits, it's entertaining." - Judas Thundersteel
"So much energy in this song. Great lyrics and great entrance to go with." - Michael Muys
"The perfect theme in every way." - James Hammond
Shawn Michaels: Sexy Boy (14 Votes)
Very few people have used the same theme for almost 20 years. Shawn Michaels is one of those few people.
There are two different versions of this song, however. The first version was performed by his then-manager Sensational Sherri from February 1992-January 1993. The second version which has been used since February 1993 has been sung by Shawn Michaels himself.
What better way to get yourself over as a cocky heel than to have yourself sing, "I think I'm cute, I know I'm sexy."
Even as HBK began to age (and join the Hulk Hogan hair club) he continued to use the song and I'm glad he did. Just like Edge, I don't think HBK would have success with any other theme song.
"One of the only theme songs actually sang by the person who used it, HBK's theme has always defined him, even if it was made for his 1992 gimmick with Sensational Sherry. Probably one of the only themes both kids and adults know equally." - Brendan Ceccolini
"The song made him huge as much as his wrestling. I even had it as my ring tone before just to bother people in school." - Lindsey Tracy
Christian: Just Close Your Eyes (12 Votes)
This includes both Waterproof Blondie and Story of the Year's versions.
Christian has used this theme off and on for the last seven years and although at first I wasn't a fan of it, I quickly started to enjoy it.
Waterproof Blondie's version works much better when he's a heel. I'm not sure what it is about it, but just the way the song is performed makes it much more suitable for a heel.
Story of the Year is perfect for a face. The way it starts off with the singer screaming "Go" just sets the tone for a high-velocity challenger.
"Its really majestic, and plays all too well to his cocky heel persona" - Derrick Ferguson
"I love Christian's current theme just close your eyes, its great" - Josh Morrison
CM Punk: Cult of Personality (11 Votes)
Although this song is new for the mainstream wrestling fans, CM Punk actually used Living Colour's famous song during his Ring of Honor days.
This song fits perfectly with his character. As much as I really enjoyed his previous theme, I've actually always been a fan of this song and now that CM Punk uses it as his theme I would have to say I prefer it now to "This Fire Burns."
"Sweet lyrics, rocking music, fits CM Punk perfectly." - Judas Thundersteel
"I love the static at the start. It sounds like breaking news, which is anything that CM Punk says. Whenever he speaks, I drop everything to listen." - Wade Barett
Triple H: The Game (9 Votes)
As much as Cult of Personality suits CM Punk, no other song suits a character as much as Triple H's "The Game."
I don't even need to explain it. Just listen to the song and you'll understand.
"I find it hard to think of another song so suited to a character. Triple H is just the game, and this is that damn good." - Graeme Hurst
"Can't go wrong with a song by Motorhead specifically designed for you. This song is perfect for HHH. Just watch his WM 22 entrance. It's one of the best entrances ever." - Kyle M.

About My Time: "Really suited the character he was portraying at the time, and was fitting in how it really was 'his time'." - Jake Steele
About Break The Walls Down: "Fits him so perfectly no matter his character. Also great to drive to." - Heath Evans
About Voodoo Child: "Although I'm not a massive fan of Hogan or his overratedness in wrestling, this song is surely the best of all time. IT'S HENDRIX and gave Hogan great relevancy when he used it." - Graeme Hurst
