The method to come up with these 80 themes was no easy feat. In fact, there were a few times where I wanted to blow the whole thing up and double the size of the bracket just to fit all of the themes in.
However, I fought that urge and have come up with 80 themes that represent a little bit of everything.
To fill out this bracket, I spent many hours fishing through hundreds of wrestlers' entrance themes. The bracket mostly consists of superstars, divas, tag teams and stables that were in WWE at one point or another.
However, there are a handful of themes that belong to those who have never stepped foot on WWE soil.
Since taste in music is very subjective, I have decided not to award seeds to the songs. Instead, once each region is down to 16 themes, they will be randomly paired against one another.
I know that I will never satisfy everyone. If you feel a theme was snubbed, please be sure to take advantage of the comment section below to let me know.
Eighty themes in all will be part of this bracket. Each region will have four play-in matchups.
When you vote, please keep the following ideas in mind.
- The "pop" or reaction that it produces from the crowd
- Is it catchy? Are fans able to familiarize themselves with it quickly?
- The sing- or hum-along factor
- The opening three seconds. Those first few bars should be enough to let you know who is coming.
- Gimmick—does it fit their gimmick? Is it believable?
- Longevity—does the theme stand the test of time?
Voting will take place over the span of the next couple of weeks.
The play-in round will be voted on first, followed by the opening rounds in each region.
I will allow 24-48 hours between each round of voting.
In order to vote, you will need to comment on the article with your selections for each round or tweet it to me.
