Which of These Wrestlers' Themes Is Better?
A lot of wrestlers go through a change at one point in their career. Sometimes they turn heel or face. Sometimes they may leave one company for another. These changes can involve a new theme song.
Theme songs have an important tie to a wrestler's character and persona. They are an important identification of him or her. Can you imagine them just walking out? It would be boring. Theme songs are definitely more important than people think.
In this slideshow, you, the reader, will get to choose which theme of the following wrestlers is the best! Just type your answers in the correct order in the comments section. In a few days, I will be finished gathering the answers, and I will create a new article displaying the results.
August 2, 2011, will be the last day to comment.
Hulk Hogan "Real American"...
How many times has this song hit and blown the roof off an arena? The legendary Hulk Hogan theme of the 1980s. This song describes everything the Hulkster stood for.
Vs. Hulk Hogan "American Made"
Hogan changed themes once he came to WCW in the early 1990s. The fans loved him just as much as they did when he was in the WWE. This theme has a similiar beat to "Real American." Some say it's better. What do you think?
John Cena "My Time Is Now"...
Ah, John Cena. The modern day Hulk Hogan in many ways. The "My Time is Now" theme debuted just as Cena's rise to the top began.
Vs. John Cena "Basic Thuganomics"
Before there was the CeNation, there was something called a Chain Gang. This rap is more explicit than "My Time is Now," and Cena's character was arguably better back then. But this is about the themes, not how good the wrestler was at the time of it.
Triple H "The Game"...
It must be great to come out on a theme sung by legendary rock band "Motorhead" specifically for you. That's because Triple H is that damn good.
Vs. Triple H "My Time"
The days of McMahon-Helmsley and D-Generation X. It was a great era, and a great theme to go along with it.
I prefer Undertaker coming out on a motorcycle because it's 10 times quicker than if he walks.
Vs. Undertaker "You're Gonna Pay"
I still remember that Biker Chain match at No Mercy. Undertaker in his final days as a biker. Awesome.
Undertaker "Rest in Peace"...
I had to make two extra slides for Taker. His 20-year career has had so many good themes, and his two personas are so legendary. This is the theme he used for the majority of his career.
Vs. Undertaker "Ministry"
A little bit of rick added to this one. Undertaker formed a Ministry of Darkness in the late 1990s. It was awesome, just like this theme.
Rey Mysterio "619"...
When Rey-Rey came to the WWE in 2003, there was a lot of hype. And Mysterio made them believe it.
Vs. Rey Mysterio "Booyaka"
By the time Rey debuted this theme, sung by P.O.D., it was clear he was a future world champion.
Kurt Angle "You Suck"...
Every time I hear this, I can't help hear the words "you suck" in my head. Thanks a lot, Edge.
Vs. Kurt Angle "My Quest"
No one's chanting "you suck" when they hear this. The Olympic gold medal winner arrived in TNA in 2006 and debuted this incredible theme. It describes Angle in every way.
Stone Cold "I Won't Do What You Tell Me"...
Nothing is more badass than this theme. It shook the whole wrestling world with stunners and beer baths and middle fingers.
Vs. Stone Cold "Glass Shatters"
Austin went with something different here. Pretty much the same song in the background, but "Disturbed" added a little in this theme of the early 2000s.
Big Show "Crank It Up"...
Big Show's current theme. It debuted around the time he was ECW champion.
Vs. Big Show "Original Crank It Up"
I think he was a little heavier when he used this. Definitely tougher in my opinion. Smashing guys half his size on SmackDown every week.
Eddie Guerrero "Lie Cheat Steal"...
Eddie's most well known theme. I can still remember the low riders. Viva la Raza!
Vs. Eddie Guerrero "Latino Heat"
Probably my personal favorite of Eddie's. Who can forget Latino Heat trying to romance Chyna?
Who Are the Winners?
It's not up to me. The readers choose the winners. Type it in the comments section in numerical order, and please be clear on your choices.
I didn't know what to put on this slide, so here's HBK's legendary theme.
