So a Happy New Year to all! As we all know, a couple of weeks ago at TLC the WWE Championship and the World Heavyweight Championship were unified, and the WHC was officially retired. Being a self-professed wrestling nerd, I decided it would be interesting to look at the now complete history of the Championship, and look at some of the statistics over its 11 year and 3 month existence.
Now that the post-Wrestlemania hype has pretty much subsided, I wanted to look at something completely different from the big event – music. Entrance music is a vital part of a wrestler’s arsenal. It’s what identifies them in the eyes of the common fan. When that first note hits… that’s when a wrestler gets the biggest pop. That’s when shivers go down the spine. It’s often the little things that distinguish between a good and great superstar, and the music – often even just the first note or two – is perhaps the most important of those little things. Good music should be instantly recognisable, and be relative to the character they are playing – they should tell the fans something about that individual. And it does help if it’s just a good song. This is a list of music that I rate highly (feel free to disagree, it’s all my opinion), because they do the job they have well.
