The Top 10 Entrance Songs in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling Today
What's up Bleaches? ''No time to waste, so let's bleach it!''
In today's world of pro wrestling, one needs to have certain attributes and characteristics, in order to become very successful.
These are some of the main ingredients and requirements that are taken into consideration when a wrestler gets pushed to the top of the wresting business: a unique look, mic skills, solid gimmick, charisma, good in-ring ability, and having a good connection with the wrestling fans.
But! A wrestler also needs something that can help the fans know when they are coming out to the arena, and that's ''Theme Music,'' something that can have a huge in impact on how the fans react to the wrestler when he or she comes out to the ring.
The reaction is sometimes positive, negative, or just plain silence, depending on how much the fans like that wrestler or how much over they are. But it can also be mixed in some cases.
This list is comprised of the top 10 entrance theme songs that are currently being used by wrestlers (whether tag teams, stables and singles) in TNA today. So without further ado, ''LET'S BLEACH IT!''
10. The Beautiful People (''Angel On My Shoulder'' by Dale Oliver)
At No. 10 we have "Angel On My Shoulder," currently used by the Beautiful People.
Before Lacey Von Erich was added, the group started in 2007 with the "I'm About to Freak," which was also produced by Dale Oliver. It wasn't that bad, but pales in comparison to the one they use now.
The theme music just has a sexy tone to it and fits all the girls of the stable very well. It just sounds like Stripper music to me.
9. Samoa Joe (''Nation of Violence'' by Dale Oliver)
At No. 9, we have "Nation of Violence," currently used by Samoa Joe.
This beat just sounds scary and bad-ass. It almost sounds like the theme music for a big, dreadful monster (like Godzilla) coming to destroy the city.
That's exactly what "The Samoan Submission Machine" is. He might not have the machete or the cool tattoo on his face anymore, but he still looks the intimidating monster he always was.
8. Abyss (''Down in the Catacombs'' by Dale Oliver)
At No. 8, we have "Down in the Catacombs," currently used by Abyss.
I'm so glad that the old heel Abyss is back. I'm also glad they got rid of the American-made mix of "Down in the Catacombs" and brought back the old school one.
The "Abyssamania" song just made him look cheesy, lame, and flat-out corny. But the older version just makes him look bad-ass and evil again, the way he used to before he turned into a Hulk Hogan loving "PUSSYCAT!"
I still don't get why they still have him using Hulk Hogan's "Finger Point" sign, though.
"WE WANT ALL OF IT GONE TNA, NOT SOME!"
7. Hulk Hogan (NWO Original Theme, ''Rockhouse remix'' by Jimmy Hart)
At No. 7, we have the NWO Original theme "Rockhouse remix" by Jimmy Hart.
I'm gonna be honest with you all, I never really like the "American Made" song that Hogan used to use back in the day. It was just to corny and cheesy (did I say that again?) for my taste.
But I gotta say that Jimmy Hart is a freaking genius for this remix he made for the NWO theme song.
It just has swagger all over it and it shows every time Hogan comes to the ring. I wouldn't mind if he never used the "American Made" music ever again.
6. Beer Money Inc. (''Take a Fall'' by Dale Oliver and Serg Salinas)
At No. 6, we have "Take a Fall" by Dale Oliver and Serg Salinas, currently used by Beer Money Inc.
The instrumental was great, but the lyrics just made it a whole lot better. The song starts off with the bottle cap popping off, with Robert and Storm shouting the name of their tag team: "BEER......MONEY!"
That alone makes you know they are coming. Gotta love the way how Storm drives down the ramp with that beer-carrying cooler car, too.
Too bad Jacqueline is gone though, she was a great asset and manager to the tag team.
5. Jeff Hardy (''Modest'' by Peroxwhy?gen)
At No. 5, we have "Modest" by Peroxwhy?gen, currently used by Jeff Hardy.
It sucked that Hardy couldn't use his last WWE theme song, "No More Words" by Endeverafter, but I gotta admit that Modest is pretty awesome too.
I thought the song was a new song, but it appears that Hardy used it when he was a TNA from 2004 to 2006.
The song just fits Jeff's weird and unique gimmick to perfection and the TNA fans really enjoy it.
4. Kurt Angle (''Gold Medal'' produced by Dale Oliver)
At No. 4, we have "Gold Medal" performed by Tha Trademarc and composed by Dale Oliver.
Dale's theme for the Main Event Mafia sucked, but he hit gold (literally) when he produced Kurt Angle's recent theme song.
It might be a rap/hip hop song, but it fits Kurt so well and really makes him look "Up to the times" as you would say.
The whole flute-drum start of the song is really cool and the way Kurt slowly comes out using the elevation platform is just pure wickedness.
His entrance kind of reminds me of Taker's entrance when the bell tolls and the lights go out, when Taker sometimes uses the same elevation platform to come to the ring. But of course, Taker's entrance is better.
3. AJ Styles (Get Ready to Fly ''I Am Remix'' performed by G.R.I.T.S.)
Coming in at No. 3, we have "I Am Remix" performed by G.R.I.T.S., currently used by AJ Styles.
I honestly thought that this song was produced by a rock/pop band, but I never knew that it was produced by a Christian hip hop band.
It doesn't matter because the song is just AWESOME and has been one of my favorite theme songs in TNA for a long time now. They should never take this theme off of AJ, unless he gets tired of it.
2. Sting (''Slay Me'' Remix by Dale Oliver)
At No. 2, we have "Slay Me Remix" by Dale Oliver, currently used by Sting.
I don't find that the original for theme is different to the remix at all, but it's another great production from the Dale Oliver.
He's been using it since 2007, and it has to be one of the best entrance songs in Pro Wrestling today.
I don't know how long Sting has, but I wouldn't wanna see the theme song go. Still, I guess Sting's days of wrestling are coming to an end.
1. Rob Van Dam (''The Whole F****n' Show!'' by Kushinator)
FINALLY! At No. 1, we have "The Whole F****n' Show!" by Kushinator, currently used by Rob Van Dam.
I gotta admit, this theme song is really catchy. This is another theme song that I thought was new, but R.V.D. has been using it since 2008.
Not just in TNA, but in several wrestling promotions like IGF, AWR and WSW. The song is one catchy song, but I guess it's due to the main theme of the song including Rob Van Dam's name.
Every time he comes out the crowd goes wild and when the song plays the part with his name, it's obvious that the crowd will do Rob's signature "thumbs to himself" pose.
It has become one of the fastest most popular theme songs in TNA and you can expect to hear it for a very long time.
I don't think that I needed to put Ric Flair's theme because I already know what it means to the wrestling business. It's just a remix of the original one from the WWE and just has a few tweaks to it, but still has the same meaning to all the Nature Boy fans around the world.
