How did you know that the shield was going to make a dominate entrance to the arena during the night of a show? You heard their theme, and how did that theme go? Their theme music was a song that you could sing out loud or in your head, a theme from when you hear someone reading call letters, you instantly thought of the Shield. Their theme, that also described the superstars that were coming to the ring.
What I’m getting at is what the fuck are we listening to when the former members of the Shield; Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, make their grand entrance. Rollins’ attire is already questionable, but his theme seems like a last minute choice out of a pile of indie themes. Ambrose’s music sounds like the perfect opening for Smackdown/Superstars or any other WWE program for that matter.
But these two aren’t the only ones safe from my rant; the winner of the inaugural Andre the Giant memorial, (Antonio) Cesaro. I don’t know what they’re going for with his theme, because I don’t think it truly defines him or his character in anyway; it’s just loud and annoying and random strums after the breakdown. Look guys, maybe it is just me, but a theme goes into making the superstar. Look at how Bray Wyatt’s compliments his character, or Mark Henry, when you see him walking to the ring, you would really think someone is about to get their ass whooped. I mean look at what Fandago’s theme did for him after his debut.
Ladies & gents of the IWC, maybe it’s just me being picky or what not, but just think of your favorite athlete’s theme and how easy it comes to mind. Also think of the most notable stars of the past, do you know their themes or at how they start off. When you hear glass shatter, who is the first star you think of?
As far as Diva’s go, I’m not even gone mess with that.
For a quick honorable mention: Rybaxel & Bo Dallas, you have Ryback’s strong hard hitting riffs, which in turn flooded out by the horns in Curtis’ theme, fucking up the tempo of the song. As for Bo, I don’t know what the fuck to do with, I just he joins with his brother sooner or later while in his Wyatt character.
