Rev Theory Was Unaware Of Randy Orton’s Return, Becky Lynch On Becoming ‘The Man’



Rev Theory released a new version of Randy Orton’s Voices entrance theme before WWE Survivor Series 2023, and they did not know Orton was returning at the event.

On a recent edition of the “High Spot” podcast, Rev Theory guitarist Julien Jorgensen revealed that the band recorded the refreshed track without knowing of Orton’s return.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On recording the song anew: “It just so happened that I literally said, ‘I want to re-record this song.’ I hadn’t watched wrestling for a few years. I had no idea Randy was even hurt. I had no idea what was going on. I just said to myself, ‘this song needs to be better. It needs a new version.’ That’s how I felt. Whatever was guiding that just so happened to line up. I wish I could tell you we knew, but it’s almost crazier that we didn’t know.”

On people speculating that they knew about Orton’s return: “Once we released it, everyone was like, ‘Do they know something?’ We were like, ‘Yeah, do we know something? Sh*t. We should start trolling ourselves.’ So we did. We started trolling ourselves and we thought it was hilarious. People thought we knew and we were in on it.

“I hate to break it to people, but it makes it more fun the fact that we had no idea and it was an inner vision that pushed that to come out. It’s a greater picture thing. We get pushed and moved to do certain things beyond our control and it just so happened that it lined up because of that. I didn’t overthink it because we didn’t know something. We weren’t let in on it and we rode that all the way until it came out. We were like, ‘Is he done? He might be done. We don’t know if he’s coming back.’ He came back and jacked. He looked awesome. We couldn’t have been happier.”

Becky Lynch’s career skyrocketed following her broken nose ahead of Survivor Series 2018.

Lynch got her nose busted by Nia Jax on the Survivor Series go-home episode of WWE RAW and it became a landmark moment for The Man.

Speaking with Uproxx, Lynch recalled utilizing the incident to rise to the top of the women’s division. She said,

“Luck is a bit of preparation meeting opportunity,” Lynch said. “It’s all the work you put in behind it, then there’s something magical. If you look at ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, he only said ‘Austin 3:16 is gonna whoop you’ one time. And it’s the best selling shirt in wrestling history. Sometimes there’s just something that hits.

That was the same thing that happened with (Nia Jax hitting) my face. You couldn’t have planned it, but it just takes off. And I think the more people are looking for authenticity in wrestling, they’re looking for something that’s real… We’re kind of constantly fighting against that and forcing things down people’s throat. We’re getting away from that a little bit now, but I think that’s one of those things where when something becomes magic, we can sometimes have a tendency to overdo it.”

Lynch will challenge Rhea Ripley for the WWE Women’s World Championship at WrestleMania 40 next weekend.
