Cult of Personality: 10 Songs for 10 WWE Superstars
CM Punk's been given a rare privilege in being able to use "Cult of Personality" as his theme—a song that has not been handled by Jim Johnston.
That said, when I heard about this, I started thinking about other songs that could be used by WWE Superstars. Some of these songs are a bit mature, so kids may want to shy away from some.
Anyway, let's get started.
Kofi Kingston Custom Theme: Kingston by Sean Kingston
Hopping around Youtube, you'll probably find a "Kofi Kingston Custom Heel Theme" of some sort, and more often than not, this will be the song that is used. Not to say it's unwarranted.
First of all, the song actually has Kingston's last name in it (a nice coincidence), and does have a feel of something the WWE Universe could get behind, heel or face. The lyrics also fit Kofi well in my opinion, but let me know what you think.
Jimmy and Jey Uso Custom Theme: Us by Rocko Feat. Yo Gotti and Future
Us. Us. Uso. Uso. Jimmy and Jey Uso. This is just a little exercise for those who don't get where I'm getting the idea of this song from for the Usos. Granted, this song works more for heels than faces, but I'm not really sure what WWE is gonna do with the Usos at this point.
This would also help to reestablish what Jimmy and Jey said upon their debut. They're not your typical Samoans. These two seemed to have lost that since turning face, but the face turn was a bit random, so who's to say they couldn't reaffirm that? Using this as a theme might help.
Daniel Bryan Custom Theme: Through the Fire and the Flames by Dragonforce
Daniel Bryan's current theme is called "Big Epic Thing," if memory serves me. Now, it's got something of an epic feel to it, and Bryan could very well be deserving of a song that could be called "Epic." Even so, I think we could do one better.
What sounds more epic and fitting for The American Dragon than "Through The Fire and The Flames" by Dragonforce? I'd be hard pressed to find an answer, though feel free to give it a listen and here for yourself.
Sheamus Custom Theme: Gaelic Valor by Folkearth
I actually stumbled upon this when I was looking for a titantron for the team of Sheamus and Drew McIntyre, and I have to say it fits. Just because of the heavy feel, though, I'd rather this theme go to Sheamus, though he may have a new theme coming out soon.
Anyway, it's not a bad song in my opinion. I could totally see The Celtic Warrior coming out (maybe at a WrestleMania) to this blasting through the arena.
Yoshi Tatsu Custom Theme: Ikkan Kenjo! ShinkenGold by Yoffy (Project.R)
Yoshi has recently adopted a more serious and impressive demeanor as of late on NXT: Redemption, and I, for one, like it. That said, with his new darker look, his current theme seems a bit...out of place. Anyway, not too long ago, I heard this, and it kind of made me think of Yoshi.
Granted, it may still seem a bit too upbeat for Yoshi, but I think the serious nature of his character matches up with this song well. What do you think?
John Morrison Custom Theme: Otherworld by Bill Muir
John Morrison has been described at times as "Rock Star-like." With that in mind, I was trying to see if I could come up with something that screamed "Rock Star." That said, I may have went more Metal than intended (Don't get on me about this, because I'm not a big rock/metal guy so don't know much when it comes to these kinds of things.).
So, I stumbled across this, and I think it fits nicely with Morrison. It has a heavy feel to it, not unlike a JoMo with a mean streak.
Wade Barrett Custom Theme: Pain for Pleasure by Sum 41
Wade Barrett seems to be on this new kick about winning so he can get as much money as possible. Random, but I suppose we can go with that. So I looked around a bit, thinking about some songs Barrett could possibly use and I found this one.
Granted, it's pretty short, though a little editing could help with that. Barrett, being a former bare-knuckle fighter and all, probably does take a little joy in his work when it comes to hurting people, which made this song a pretty good basis, in my opinion, for Wade.
Mason Ryan Custom Theme: War by Sick Puppies
WWE is getting pretty full with its overly-muscled big guys as of late. That said, I'm kind of liking Mason Ryan, and assuming he can either get some mic skills or get a mouth piece, I think he could be something big in WWE.
Looking back on Mason's short time on the main roster, I can say that the end result has always looked pretty impressive. Laying out Kane and The Big Show and destroying just about anyone else that he felt he wanted to, made my decision to give him this song very easy.
Zack Ryder Custom Theme: Take Care, Spike Your Hair by Luke and Andy
Zack Ryder is known for a lot of things. He wears his sunglasses indoors, he fist pumps, has his own YouTube show which gets more hits than some WWE Programming and is the holder of WWE's most prestigious prize, the WWE Internet Championship.
Aside from that, he's known for his catchphrases "Woo Woo Woo, You Know It," and of course,"Take Care, Spike Your Hair." So, there's no need for me to go into why this song was picked for Zack. "You Know It."
I will say it starts off kind of slow, but simple editing can fix that.
John Cena Custom Theme: All I Do Is Win by DJ Khaled, T-Pain, Etc.
If ever a song made me think of John Cena more...I honestly don't know it, because when I hear this song, the first thing that comes to mind is Superman. Enough said.
So, what did you think? Did you like any song of the songs? Think they would be better for a different superstar? Leave your thoughts below.
