• Former World Champion Says WWE Needs To Make Better Entrance Music Theme Songs For Current Wrestlers
On the latest episode of his weekly ‘Hall of Fame’ podcast, 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T blamed WWE for not focusing enough on the creation of the entrance music theme songs for their current Superstars.
Jim Johnston, who was responsible for creating the famous entrance music for Legends like The Undertaker, The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin & The Ultimate Warrior, parted ways with the company in 2017, after he worked there for 32 years.
Here’s what the former 6-time World Champion had to say about the current state of music in WWE:
“I don’t think WWE concentrates enough on that one thing. You know what, I don’t think it’s because they’re not, you know, thinking about it more than anything.
These are just my thoughts and my concepts. But my thing is, the entrance music, should be more thought put into the entrance music because that music has to have the fans feel a certain way.
It’s not just for the wrestler to walk out to. And I think that’s what’s not thought about as much.
Just like, for instance, when I heard Stone Cold Steve Austin’s music and the glass break, that could’ve been, of course Steve Austin took it and ran with it and took it all the way to the hilt, but that entrance could’ve been for so many different guys.
That entrance and theme probably could’ve got over just about every guy that had that alone.”
