WWE Music: Looking Back at the Music of the Superstars and Shows of 2010
(Warning: For Entertainment Purposes only)
Throughout the years, many wrestlers have stepped foot into a WWE ring. Superstars were made while some seemed to slowly fade away.
Whatever the case, each wrestler needed to have mic skills, in-ring skills, a titantron and an entrance song, of course.
I have decided today to recognize the entrance songs of those who were given the chance to step foot in the WWE ring for the year of 2010. Some songs were good while others were bad, but whichever song was played with the accompanying wrestler, it made that person recognizable before they even came out.
There have also been a lot of songs for every PPV that basically match its theme, as well as songs that are used specifically for the WWE's many shows.
I will input my own opinion on the songs to make this more fun for you, the reader.
So get your Flash player ready and prepare for the music of 2010 by the WWE!
Who better to start with than the main face of the company, John Cena himself. Like the song title says, his time is now.
Don't believe me, just look at what he has accomplished during his tenure in the WWE. Look at his location in the WWE food chain and you know that his song's title is actually true. It's his time to be the face of the company.
Once you hear the start of the song, you know who's coming out. The audience erupts in a swarm of noise, whether it's boos or cheers, and the Champ comes out.
The song obviously fits Cena's character. Cena sings it, so why shouldn't it fit? It has lasted ever since Cena became WWE champion for the first time ever in 2005 and it hasn't changed since. I don't see this song changing anytime soon.
The Champ's song is My Time Is Now and it was made by him during his rapper days, thus making it Cena-Approved.
The Viper, with a deadly RKO in his arsenal, has Voices by Rev Theory as his current entrance song. It describes his current character as well or possibly even better than Burn In My Light did for the young Legend Killer Randy Orton.
You just have to hear the first word and the crowd erupts in cheers. This song obviously captivates the audience. It also fits his current Viper character and that's all that matters.
I see it lasting for now, but if he ever gets a gimmick change, Voices is going to be replaced. Although I don't see a gimmick change for the time to come.
Randy Orton hears voices, and if they stop talking, then he may change theme songs. But for now Randy hears "Voices in his head," "They talk to him, they understand." "They tell him things that he will do. They show him things he'll do to you."
"They talk to him," telling him to keep this song. Knowing Randy, he'll listen to his Voices.
"You think you know me." Edge, the Rated R Superstar and Ultimate Opportunist is coming to the ring next and you know this is true because this introduction is now officially incorporated with Edge himself.
Once it starts, the audience is captivated with the presence of the Rated R Superstar. This song fits Edge's gimmick perfectly. Especially his rocker attitude. It has lasted ever since he joined the main event, so I see him keeping it for a long time to come.
"On this day, (Edge) sees clearly" that this song is his and no one can take it away from him.
The Master of the 619, the Ultimate Underdog, Rey Mysterio. Whatever you know him as, there is no mistaking his song with someone else's.
It's kind of lost it's "pop" value to me over the years, but the kids still get excited and that's all that matters with the WWE.
The All-American American has used this song ever since his debut. The title is even more true now that he has the ankle lock at his disposal. After locking the hold in, his opponents go their knees in pain, except for the smaller guys who, you know, get lifted up.
As for the song, once it starts you know that the All-American American is coming; although it has lost its immediate pop, Swagger is still recognized with this song.
I can see Swagger keeping this song for his career as long as he's the cocky All-American American. If he turns face, I predict a change in song, but for now I see this song staying.
Like Swagger, Kofi Kingston has used this song for his entrance ever since his debut. He used it when he was Jamaican and continues to use it after changing his origin story to Ghana.
People immediately pop when they hear the start of Kofi's song because they know who is coming out. It fits his happy-go-lucky character perfectly. But if he ever changes gimmicks, turns heel, or becomes more aggressive, his song is most likely going to change.
"(Kofi) hears them callin', he hears them shoutin', he hears them cryin'" whenever he comes out with this song.
Simply OutStanding, Kofi Kingston uses "SOS" and makes it work.
Sheamus, the Celtic Warrior and newest King of the Ring, has now used this song since debuting. It is Sheamus' song and people know it.
It fits his Irish and brawling monster character. I see it lasting a long time to come even if Sheamus becomes a comedy act—all that creative will have to do is alter the lyrics a little like "too many lies" to "too many fries."
"It's a shame for fame, they lose their head" could describe the audience booing Sheamus whenever he comes to the ring for this song. Written in my Face is a song that could be Sheamus' forever.
Obviously, his song lied. He was stopped, and stopped big by his mic skills, preventing him from getting that big push that everyone seemed to desire for him.
People knew that this was Benjamin's song but didn't really feel excited when he came out. It fitted him, which could be why ever since becoming a singles star he always used it.
It's sad to see that he was stopped already.
Live for the Moment was Matt Hardy's final song before parting with the WWE and it lasted quite a while too. I feel like he got stuck in the moment more than living for it. He always seems to mention Amy Dumas (Lita) anytime he has a chance. Why can't he just get over it?
Surprising, to say the least, is what this song was—as was Matt Hardy's carrer. Whether he was a midcarder, jobber or upper midcarder (not main eventer), Hardy always seemed to get a loud crowd reaction when this song played. Why? I don't know.
It lasted for a long time, and I appreciate him for keeping it alive for so long, but his career was ruined through self-destruction only.
"You couldn't pay me enough"—funny how his song could have described his downfall.
What a busy year 2010 was for Christian, huh? Christian changed brands from the now-defunct ECW, to Monday Night RAW, to Friday Night Smackdown with NXT in between.
He also changed from midcarder to high midcarder possibly getting a push, to getting injured. Christian has seen a lot of change this year but the only thing that hasn't changed is his entrance song.
From the start of the song, people pop for the arrival of Captain Charisma. It fits his character well and the lyrics highlight Christian's career.
Christian always seems to change songs whenever he changes or returns to the company, but I can't really see a change from this song soon.
Even if he does become champion, "the scars will never heal" of how he was treated before that. Christian is underrated, you don't have to "close your eyes" to notice it.
As iconic as Y2J himself, although with a few alterations throughout the years, this song has basically been Chris Jericho's theme song for his whole wrestling career in WWE.
The song always amazes the crowd with or without the interactive beginning. His band sings this song, so it obviously fits Jericho's character.
Although a few alterations may come, the song will always basically stay the same. This song is Jericho's anytime he "steps in the arena and breaks the walls down."
The Guru of Greatness, the Shaman of Sexy, the Monday Night Delight, John Morrison seems to have been getting a long-awaited push recently, but his entrance song hasn't seemed to have changed.
Honestly, it fits. Plus, the song is true in that it ain't no make believe as to how long it had taken creative before giving him a push. It's already been proven that it fits Morrison whether he's face or heel, and since those are the only two real choices in the WWE, he's keeping this song for a long time to come.
"Too much wasted time, ain't going to waste no more" shows that Morrison is indeed going to reach the main event sooner or later.
CM Punk was a wrestler for the better part of the year and he had this theme song for the whole year. This song was also used for the Straight Edge Society which had Luke Gallows, Serena, and Joseph 'Joey' Mercury.
With the opening rhythm, people know Punk is coming out. This song fits his straight-edge character well and I don't see him changing this song in the near future.
"Even through the darkest days, this fire burns always" could tell that Punk wasn't forgetting anything anytime soon. He does everything for a reason and always has his reasons ignited, waiting for the right time to release them.
"Never one to be cast aside, this day is mine" shows that Punk always intends to steal the show and won't let himself be cast away from the main event or the spotlight.
Evan Bourne, the man with a one-night push who is currently injured, has been using this song for some time now.
The song lies, as he doesn't win much. It's basically the opposite. The opening seems a little cheesy for my tastes, although the rest of the song fits him perfectly. "Some were born to fly, some were born to sail, but (he) was born to light the fire" shows that he always impresses while in the ring.
Bourne may not have been "born to win," but he always shows his passion in the ring and this song completely shows it.
Usually a change in song means that there is a push to come, but in this case, there isn't. After changing to this horrendous song from a song that actually was quite good, Dibiase hasn't received quite a good push.
Removing A New Day was a bad move from the creative team. Although he does come from money, he doesn't have to gloat about it. It looks like Dibiase is trying his best to not have a separate identity from his father.
The lyrics actually describe Dibiase pretty well, but the part where he "won't let nobody spoil his dream, cause he's got money and he can do anything" is a lie: His dream to get into the main event has been spoiled by creative and he can't buy his way into it.
With a gimmick change came Cody Rhodes' new entrance song—a good upgrade from his past song, too. Out to Kill was Cody's old song, but adding a narcissist gimmick changed all of that. Having a throwback song makes Rhodes seem even more cheesy as a character.
"Cue the smoke and mirrors" is true. The smoke is cued to cover his main-event push while the mirror has Rhodes looking at his father's and brother's reflection of not getting into the main event using an entertaining gimmick.
Cody Rhodes' old theme song actually works if he had a badass gimmick. It's too bad that he had to become "Dashing," but if he changes back, he may change to this.
Although it has no lyrics, it is a good song for any badass gimmick.
Cody Rhodes & Ted Dibiase
"It's a new day, it's a new generation" is actually true for the current WWE, which is pushing and focusing on the new generation, which sadly doesn't involve these two men who really wanted to create their own "legacy" in the WWE.
MVP, a man who never got the push he deserved even if he did change entrance songs from I'm Comin' to Ballin', eventually asked and received his release from the WWE due to unsatisfactory reasons. MVP was indeed ballin', but the WWE could never give him the push that he rightfully deserved.
MVP was Comin', but not to the main-event picture. He came to the "future endeavored" list. He was "here to do his thing, here to bring the pain," which he did do, but it never seemed to impress officials.
He left with a change in song after being unsatisfied with the company's direction.
Becoming Intercontinental Champion fortunately did not give Ziggler a change in entrance music. He could be "perfection" with the way his career seems to be going.
Dolph Ziggler may be a main-eventer sooner rather than later, and I see him keeping this song during his main-event tenure.
Although out for most of 2010, Ezekiel had shown signs of domination throughout his scarce appearances. Now fully recovered, he may "rise to the occasion, do something amazing," especially with the way he has dominated, and with his "look" he may be unstoppable.
"Anything that he does, he dominates," making him a good contender to hold gold soon.
Changing from generic music to a unique song helped McIntyre in so many ways.
He has obviously broken many people's dreams, including his own wife's. If it weren't for that little "dispute," Tiffany may have still been a part of the Smackdown Divas roster, and they really need it.
He has also broken creative's dream in making him be the Wrestlemania 26 Money in the Bank winner, because he wasn't generating enough heat to deserve a world title push. It's not like Swagger was any different, but that's a whole different conversation for another day.
McIntyre also broke Vince's dreams by being the Chosen One and not living up to his expectations. Wouldn't you be ashamed in calling this guy a future champion if he hadn't even performed at that level yet—I know I would.
"Bad dreams come true," indeed. At least there's time on McIntyre's side—let's just hope he knows how to use it.
"What is yours, now is mine!" Drew may eventually say that in his future.
GONG!! No lyrics, yet this song is iconic with the Deadman himself. You already know who it is before the Deadman even comes out.
It must be quite a good song, in my opinion, to be able to hype up the crowd before the Undertaker even comes out. This is a masterpiece because it is the song that the Undertaker has used during his whole tenure as the "Deadman."
A song that doesn't sound like it would fit, but it does fit. Zack Ryder makes this song work. It fits his character well even if some parts of this song aren't PG.
Zack Ryder waits for the "radio to tell him everything it knows, he will believe every word it tells him so," even if it told him that he is a tool.
"He looks into the mirror, he likes what he sees," but he shouldn't because he's a jobber and not a main-eventer. Zack Ryder's gimmick works, but it has to change if he ever wants to be taken seriously ever again.
After having a generic song, Danielson...oops, I mean Daniel Bryan, switched to a widely recognized tune in the form of Ride of the Valkyries.
It fits his character well, but doesn't scream main-eventer to me or the crowd. If he wants to go into the main event, his theme may have to change.
Fits his badass character well but not his geeky character. As a generic song, this could work for a midcarder, but not for a main-eventer.
Thankfully he changed songs, even if his new song isn't doing him any favors either.
From being in a tag team with Zack Ryder to becoming a singles competitor, Hawkins has kept this song for most of his WWE tenure. He has been in "the middle of" all of his tag team breakup with Vance Archer as well as in the middle of an endless feud with Trent Barretta.
He's also in the middle of the midcard, not being shown "any love."
Going back to his instrumental theme, Kane has become the vicious monster that we once knew. I can't say much since it has no lyrics, but it fits the monster character perfectly and that's all that currently matters.
Although Finlay had this song for a while, Hornswoggle is the one who people mostly recognize it with. It fits Hornswoggle and the PG era well and that's about all the nice things I can say for this slide.
Used since his return, Big Show has not decided to change songs. "You won't see it comin' but I promise that you'll know, it's the Big Show" can describe Show's 2010. No one sees his fist and they pay for it by getting knocked out.
His former partners, Miz and Jericho, never saw him turning face, and Punk never saw his push about to end with the Big Show. At the end of the day, they all knew that Big Show screwed them all.
The Miz With Alex Riley
AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! The Miz is one of those who received a push after changing from Reality to this. The song title couldn't describe him any better as the Miz has indeed come to play after becoming rejected and mocked for being a former reality star. After persevering and enduring a lot of hardships and criticism, he became the new WWE champion.
Thanks to the WWE edit, people know who's coming at the word "AWESOME!" The song fits and the lyrics somehow describe his character.
I see him keeping this song as long as he's in the main-event picture.
ShoMiz's song was supposed to be a mix of both of the Superstar's songs, kinda like Crank the Walls Down was for JeriShow, but this sounds more like Miz's song mixed with Show's echo.
This song shows how this team went after splitting: Miz went to the spotlight while Show echoed in the background.
After a failed attempt with the unrecognizable Right Time, Truth returned to his old song that got him to the upper midcard.
This song is about all that Truth had going for him in 2010. His career has stayed neutral in the upper midcard, which isn't bad, but he could do better.
Since I can't understand most of his gibberish, I'll keep it brief. It was not the Right Time for R-Truth to unveil this song as his entrance song in 2010.
Cryme Tyme had this song and after splitting up, JTG kept it. It fits his thug gimmick well, and he is bringing the hood with his whole character, although he isn't seeing much success.
Before getting released and joining TNA with the song Hardcore Country, Mickie James was a five-time WWE women's champion. She had it her whole WWE career and I prefer it over Hardcore Country.
This was Shad's theme song after splitting up from JTG and breaking up Cryme Tyme. It's good for a heel, which Shad couldn't really be.
It was supposed to be his time, but we all know how that turned out.
This was Vance Archer's first and only song before getting released by the WWE. It had a pretty nice beat to it with the drums but failed to be used well because Archer was never truly given a chance to become a monster of a heel.
Before her release, Tiffany used this as her theme song for the WWE. Although I'm not completely sure about what "insatiable" means, it doesn't seem too PG if you use context clues by hearing the rest of the lyrics.
Gregory "The Hurricane" Helms
After reverting back to the Hurricane gimmick, Helms also brought back his old Hurricane theme but with a new beginning. It all stayed the same as before with the Hurricane saving people here and there.
In the end, he couldn't save the most important person—himself.
Jimmy Wang Yang
Before getting released in 2010, Jimmy Wang Yang used this theme, although scarcely, during his entrances to the ring.
It fit his gimmick well. That's all I can say.
I don't know why but I like this song. It seems to fit Young well and it's catchy.
That's all I can say about this, since he is done, unlike the lyric: "I ain't done."
Really? Are creative getting lazy! This is basically a redone version of Young's song minus the lyrics and with a darker tone, yet it somehow fits Tyler Reks' heel character.
Goldust, The Bizarre One, has a bizarre entrance song. It fits him well and doesn't seem like it could fade away anytime soon.
The Great Khali
The Great Khali has this song to fit his babyface persona. I don't like it but I prefer it over his old, boring one.
The World's Strongest Man has a theme that shows that he is ready to beat someone up. It fits his character, telling people that he is ready to kick someone's ass.
Good or bad, Primo has used this song ever since his split with Carlito.
It fits his gimmick and tells people that he is from Puerto Rico, which is always a bonus.
Santino uses this song proudly to represent Italy. It always makes the crowd pop and works for Santino, who is entertaining more than he should—he's like a wrestler who doesn't wrestle as much as being a comedian.
Generic music. 'Nuff said.
Although I do like it, especially the transition in the middle.
David Hart Smith
Generic music. Seems like the Hart Dynasty split turned out well for both men, huh?
It's hard to see Smith being misused, but what can one do.
Although the Hart Dynasty had this song, their breakup left the song free for Natalya to keep. I feel like it fits her well since she is indeed the closest relative to Bret and the one that resembles Bret more in-ringwise.
Technically, he fought. He also had some appearances here and there. Plus he returned, so his song title doesn't lie.
He may be "The Best There Is, The Best There Was, and The Best There Ever Will Be."
Although he comes out usually to Santino's music, this is still Koslov's song. He uses it to show that he is a monster and that pain is coming his opponent's way.
Generic Darth Vader music. Fits Regal's evil character well.
I like this song and it fits Regal's character as well as Darth Vader's music fit him.
Some happy music for this happy man. It makes everyone happy, everyone except for Vince, that is. Tatsu doesn't seem to get the push that he deserves and one can only wonder but why.
Tatsu's got good ring skills and can help with the Asian community.
Some beats here and there. It fits Fox's foxy character well. That's all I can say.
The Bella Twins
The song title is misleading: Apparently Daniel Bryan can touch them. He can look and he can touch.
This song works for the Bellas, but somehow can't do wonders for them wrestling-wise.
It's up to you to think if the song title is actually true. It works for Eve but the intro doesn't really spark the audience's attention—but since when have Divas ever caught the audience's attention?
Do you believe the song title's name? Apparently the WWE doesn't. She isn't a good enough Diva to hold the Divas championship, and the last time I checked, being a Diva means being Smart, Sexy, and Powerful.
Sorry for the rant, but Gail really deserves a push for her efforts, or at least more air time.
If anyone wants to translate the song's title feel free to do so. If it's Why?, then it works. "Why?" did Maryse ever decide to pair up with Dibiase—to ruin her push, that's why.
This song works for her somehow, and that's what matters most.
Ever since the MNM days, this song has existed. It fit Melina as a heel and face. It fits her Hollywood gimmick. The key word is "fits," and that's why it works for Melina.
Some generic music for the Usos. It's a bit sad that they have generic music, but since when does the WWE care about tag teams anyway?
Alberto Del Rio
Some nice instrumental music for Alberto Del Rio. Shows off his Mexican side and rich side together quite well. It shows off his arrogance while showing his rich Mexican history.
All I have to say is that it fits.
Chavo has used this for a long time without a change in music and video. Without edits. It's the same thing all over and over again.
Chavo isn't going anywhere close to the midcard—he's always going to stay in the lower portions of it.
Generic music for the Masterpiece. Originally given to him so he could have some beat for him to do his pec dance to. That's about all I can say.
Kaval's song has a nice beat to it, making it one of the better instrumentals out in the WWE.
Too bad he's been released. This song fit him well and could have led to a better push, but it seems that it wasn't meant to be.
Generic music that Trent Barreta kept after his former partner Caylen Croft's release. It fits him and is kinda catchy to listen to.
The Glamazon is so dominant that even her song is named after her. It is a song that fits without using lyrics to represent the Glamazon. It does a good job at representing the Glamazon with only instruments.
Kelly Kelly has a song that fits her nice-girl character. It can only work for a face Kelly and not for a heel Kelly, but when will Kelly ever turn?
It's highly unlikely, and Kelly Kelly may be face for her whole career.
Originally Michelle McCool's song, both her and Layla now use it as their LayCool entrance. Apparently this song lies, since Undertaker is good enough for Michelle McCool while, if the rumors are true, Cody Rhodes is good enough for Layla.
Some instrumental song. Seems like a salsa song to me. It was made with as much effort as Rosa Mendes gives to the Divas division.
Generic music. We all know that generic music is for unsuccessful people and Gallows is more proof of this.
Apparently this song was going to go to Stacy Keibler, but due to her departure, it went to Maria Kanellis instead. It works more for Stacy, but since she left they didn't want it to waste, so they had to give it to someone, right?
It looks like WWE gave it to the right person—she doesn't work for the company anymore. Good move, WWE.
He spits in the face of people who are not cool. That's all you have to know about this man.
Some crazy beats for this crazy lunatic with a beard. It fit his psychotic character well, especially when he adopted the crazy "doctor" gimmick.
The song title couldn't have been more true, especially during the latter parts of his career, when Dave Batista was a heel.
This was one of the best songs in the WWE and it is no wonder why it lasted as long as it did. This song fit the "Animal" very well, whether as a face or heel. This song helped him gain the crowd's attention.
Although HHH uses the song King of Kings occasionally, The Game is basically his theme.
"It's all about the game, and how you play it." HHH knew how to play the game very well by marrying the boss's daughter and gaining a spot into the main event that much quicker, especially with Evolution.
With all of his success, it seems to me that the man who dubbed himself The Game played the game and passed it.
One of the few to sing vocals in his own entrance song, Shawn used this ever since his career started and it was as iconic as the man himself.
It describes the man himself ever since his younger days.
D-Generation X's song totally described their rebelliousness. It showed that they wanted to own the company and weren't allowing anyone to stop them.
From the start, this song showed that DX was coming.
Slam Master J
Some beats, that's it. Poor attempt at entrance music. This was the song that made his career go downhill.
Kung Fu Naki
Kung-Fu? Yes, he used this gimmick after R-Truth told him that his name sounded like KungFuNaki—how, I don't know.
This was another awful theme for an awful gimmick that was the nail in the coffin for Funaki's WWE career, making him get released shortly thereafter.
She sings her own song and if you know how well she sings, then you know how good this song was.
Paul Burchill With Katie Lea Burchill
Generic stuff. Burchill deserved better, but the WWE didn't think so.
He fought and appeared more than once in 2010. He does give no chance in hell to his enemies, as proven by his "forgiveness" to Bret Hart earlier this year.
It fits Vince's evil boss character well, making it one of the longest-lasting songs in this list.
Although he only had one match this year, he still fought. Plus he's in TNA, so that's something.
There were bad dreams galore because he was the Innovator of Violence. His specialty was extreme matches, making people be scared to face him in one.
This song fit Dreamer well and is better than his TNA song.
He fought a little,got released before given a real chance to showcase his abilities, and had his song start with "Essscobar......"
That's all I can say for this man.
The clips of this video show how successful Long's career has been in the WWE. This man has had a successful career and he can show off if he wants to.
Long has a song that works, which could also show how his career has been.
Jerry "The King" Lawler
The age of the video and song show exactly how good Lawler's career has been. Although he's never had a chance at the WWE title aside from 2010, he's called "The King" for a reason and this song represents that.
Who knew that Nickelback would work with Monday Night Raw. Obviously the WWE did, why else would they change from To Be Loved to this song.
Although it isn't exactly PG, it works with the whole feeling of a RAW show.
Old School Raw
The beat of the old school Raw intro is nice and I'm sure that it brought back many memories to many people.
WWE Slammy Awards
The Slammys had Hello Good Morning as its theme song. I don't understand how it fits with the theme of the Slammys but I still like this song.
ECW's final song was also what I consider its best song.
The WWE had to edit this song because the original song wasn't PG. Either way, it's still a good song that somehow fits in with the show.
Replacing the old song after Smackdown moved to SyFy. This song works with the show and helps show what the new, younger generation show is all about.
Let It Roll, Smackdown's old song which got replaced when Smackdown moved to SyFy, was a good song.
NXT Season 1, 2, 4 Rookies
Wild & Young was used for the NXT rookies, especially Season 1, whenever the rookies did not use their respective pro's entrance music to go into the ring.
It was good during the first few times that this song was played, but became annoying after a while.
NXT Season 1, 2, 4 Rookies
The NXT rookies used this song to enter into the arena sometimes. It was mostly used for NXT Season 2 rookies instead of Wild & Young.
It was a good upgrade.
NXT Season 3 Rookies, "You Make the Rain Fall"
A change from the older songs. Why? Because if the WWE had used Wild & Young for their NXT Diva rookies, they would have received a lot of backlash for not being PG. Smart move, WWE.
Thankfully, this song only works for Divas. Imagine this song with the guys—it wouldn't make the exact same image, huh.
Tribute to the Troops
This was used as the promotional theme for 2010's Tribute to the Troops, and it couldn't have been a better song. This is a good song that could be a considered a fit for the theme of that event.
Tribute to the Troops
Born Free was another theme song for 2010's Tribute to the Troops, and it also seemed to fit into the theme of the show.
Hero came at a time when Skillet was providing a lot of songs for the WWE. It helped fit the theme of the Royal Rumble, in which only one person can be victorious.
This was one of the better PPV songs of 2010 for the WWE.
This was the second theme for the Rumble. It is sung by Chris Jericho's band, Fozzy, and it was mostly used to present the match cards before the Royal Rumble.
It is secondary because it took a backseat to the primary Hero.
After putting out pure hardcore rock, the WWE decided to use a rap song for one of its PPVs. It really doesn't work with the theme, but at least it was worth a try and I respect the WWE for that.
But WWE should stick to rock while TNA gets rap.
I Made It is a good song, especially for the Grandest Stage of Them All, because it describes the path to getting there and what an accomplishment it is to do so.
Be Yourself was the secondary theme for a reason. It was used to promote the match card and that's it.
The third official theme for Wrestlemania 26 is from AC/DC. It seems like AC/DC has one of their songs every year in a PPV, which is not necessarily a bad thing nor a good thing, hence it being the third theme.
This is the fourth theme of Wrestlemania for a reason. It wasn't used, if at all, and it being No. 4 speaks for itself.
A good song provided by Saliva. You couldn't expect any less coming from the band that created the song for possibly one of the best Wrestlemania's ever, Wrestlemania 23.
Over The Limit
Crash by Fit for Rivals fit as well to this PPV as well as You're Going Down by Sick Puppies fit for Extreme Rules in 2009. It was a good song that fit the theme of the PPV.
Fatal 4 Way
This song didn't really fit the theme of the PPV to me, but that's just my opinion.
Money In The Bank
I like this song and feel that it was a good fit with the whole Money in the Bank theme of the PPV.
This was a good song used to fit the whole party theme that Summerslam brings every year.
Night Of Champions
Although Night of Champions didn't have an official theme song, this was the closest to a theme song that NoC 2010 had. I find it a to be a pretty good song that could have been the theme.
Hell In A Cell
The Hell in a Cell theme is a good song for the PPV but it cannot surpass the bar that was set by last year's Monster.
This is a good theme song, although I don't know how it fits with the whole theme of "bragging rights." If anyone knows, feel free to tell me.
This is once again a good theme song, yet I don't know how it fits the whole PPV and its theme.
TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs
A good song but once again, how does it fit the whole TLC theme?
Nevertheless, it is obviously a catchy song.
Nexus, consisting of Wade Barrett, David Otunga, Justin Gabriel, Heath Slater, Husky Harris, and Muchael McGillicutty have used this song since Nexus' formation. They are a unit, they are a group, they are one. Or at least it looked that way before Nexus' small cracks such as Bryan's departure, Sheffield's injury, Tarver's removal, and Young's exile from the group.
As for the song, the whole song lets people know that Nexus is coming.The song works and fits well for the group but when a Nexus member comes to the ring alone it doesn't work. After Nexus's splits, I feel like this song also goes. But for now, "the only easy day was yesterday" as Nexus is "one" and united.
Here is one more "Custom" Nexus video for proof:
And thus ends the music recap. I hope you enjoyed this since it took me quite a while to make. I would appreciate the comments, likes, and reads, whatever you can give me.
I'm not trying to persuade any of you, but I do want you to remember that this was for entertainment purposes only, so if you were entertained, then I feel like this deserves a comment or a like. I'm not persuading; I'm just saying!
