WWE: 6 Musicians Who Would Be Great WWE Superstars
The worlds of music and pro wrestling have always intertwined.
Most of today's biggest superstars have entrance music by some of today's most popular acts. Rev Theory provides the soundtrack for Randy Orton's entrance. Killswitch Engage helps introduce CM Punk, and the New Nexus. P.O.D. welcomes Rey Mysterio to the WWE Universe.
And current superstars aren't the only ones who come to the ring accompanied by the music of popular music. Motorhead (Triple H), Alter Bridge (Edge) and Finger Eleven (Kane) have provided the soundtrack of entrances from days past.
But what if the shoe was put on the other foot? What if the men and women making the music were the ones entering the ring when that music blared throughout the arena?
Let's take a look at 10 musicians who could potentially make it as WWE superstars.
Though he may not be the tallest of men, former Misfits frontman Glenn Danzig packs quite the punch in a small package.
Danzig, generously estimated at 5'8", still tips the scales between 200 and 220 pounds, and he has quite the attitude to go along with it. Born in the blood of the punk music of the 1970s and 80s, Danzig has the swagger necessary to thrive in the WWE Universe.
Zakk Wylde is one of the best guitarists in the music business, playing alongside rock icon Ozzy Osbourne for years, as well as fronting his own band, Black Label Society.
Wylde commands the stage, and at 6'2", he's certainly no diminutive man. The badass from Bayonne, New Jersey, could have what it takes to thrive in the WWE Universe.
The badass gimmick worked for The Undertaker. Why couldn't it work for Wylde?
If any man on this list could thrive as a WWE superstar, it may be Rammstein lead singer Till Lindemann.
The 6'3", 220-pound German pyromaniac already intimidates and draws awe from onlookers. Lindemann would fit perfectly into the WWE Universe.
In fact, all six members of Rammstein would be able to hang in WWE. All six men stand well over six feet tall, and Lindemann himself is a licensed pyrotechnician.
Such characters are looked upon with judgmental eyes, but in the WWE Universe, they would fit right in.
Phil Anselmo, one of the baddest guys in music, fronted Pantera, one of the baddest bands of the 1990s. He went on to become lead singer of Down when Pantera broke up, and he's still one of the baddest guys around.
Anselmo even sounds like a badass. A voice ravaged by rampant alcohol and drug use has made Anselmo sound like a guy ready to kick ass at the drop of the hat. And Anselmo's reputation as a no-nonsense guy would put him right in the middle of the fight in the WWE Universe.
Saliva has arguably been the band most notably at the forefront of the synergy of popular music and professional wrestling. So it is only natural to see the band's lead singer, Josey Scott, on a list of musicians who could hold their own in the WWE Universe.
Scott hails from Memphis, Tenn., the home of WWE Hall of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler, and a hub of pro wrestling in its heyday. With pro wrestling already in his blood, the step in between the ropes would be an easy one for Scott.
In a band fully comprised of men wearing horror masks, Slipknot guitarist Mick Thomson stands out above the rest.
Thomson, pushing 6'3" and weighing well in excess of 200 pounds, is the most physically intimidating member of the Iowa-based metal group. Thomson, whose personality is as dark as he is tall, would bring a darkness the WWE has been lacking since The Undertaker became a twice-a-year feature instead of a full-time superstar.
