Earlier this week the legendary UK band, the Rolling Stones, celebrated their 50th anniversary. The band first made their debut on July 12,1962 and has been rocking since then.
As a fan of both the Rolling Stones and the WWE I started thinking, what if WWE superstars used Rolling Stones songs as their entrance theme songs?
For better or worse, what follows is a list of 5 WWE superstars and their perfect Rolling Stones' entrance theme songs.
Start Me Up's slightly mellow tune isn't exactly on par with Ryback's more hardcore attitude, but if one pays closer attention to some of the song's lyrics the two become an interesting fit.
If you start me up
If you start me up
I'll never stop
I've been running hot
You make a grown man cry
Ryback's streak with the WWE has been hot. The superstar has been undefeated since his April 6 re-debut. As for making grown men cry, I am almost certain I saw him do that on SmackDown! a few weeks ago.
With a little tweaking, Start Me Up could be Ryback's theme—let's just hope the unstoppable jobber-squashing machine doesn't start duck walking accross the ring.
The Rolling Stones have always been a socially-conscious band, and the lyrics of You Can't Always Get What You Want are reflective of this.
Social-consciousness aside, You Can't Always Get What You Want's iconic chorus seems to be describing the Miz's current condition:
No, you can't always get what you want
But if you try sometime, you just might find
You get what you need
Sure the Miz may not be getting what he "wants" (the WWE championship, more TV time, etc), but he is getting what he "needs" (a starring role in a straight-to-DVD movie).
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black
I could not forsee this thing happening to you
Who knows maybe by the time Orton finally makes his return he will have faded away.
No one else in the WWE has been trying to get the satisfaction of being on WWE TV more than the promotion's luckless superstar, Z ack Ryder.
With the rise (and fall) of his YouTube show, Ryder has proven that no matter how much he tries, he "can't get no satisfaction."
Over his illustrious career Kane has proven that "The Big Red Machine" is not someone you want to mess with. The tough as nails, scary as hell Kane has for years been a massively destructive force in the ring.
However, as of late, "The Devil's Favorite Demon," seems to be losing his edge, and while his in-ring ability is still phenomenal, his win/loss record and storyline actions have definitely earned him some of my sympathy.
