Roberts, along with his python Damien, this theme seemed to suit him as the mysterious journeyman looking for a fight. Classic stuff here. Whether you love or hate John Cena, one thing Cena deserves credit for is being a legit musician. Throughout his career, Cena has been able to incorporate that in his theme songs and do his own music.
If you can do your own theme, you get some points from me. Kurt Angle may be one of the most underrated heels ever. Sure, Angle played a goody two-shoed kiss-ass but it takes a lot to be a legit American hero and drape yourself in the red, white and blue and have an arena full of fans boo you. I am including Ric and Charlotte Flair together because while their themes are slightly different, the essence of their themes are similar enough that I am keeping them together.
Offering fans money for performing various activities and then doing something to prevent them from doing it, DiBiase was the master. And his theme was capped off by his famous laugh at the start. While his band Fozzy never performed this theme, I always wondered how it would sound if Jericho ever sang his own theme song. Any wrestling fan who has ever wanted to rebel against society identified with DX. This was the group who did whatever they wanted to anyone they wanted and really were the people everyone wanted to be with.
Granted, pretty much everything they did in the Attitude Era might not be allowed in But at the time, they were the wildest wrestlers in a wild era of WWE.
This is an example of a theme doing so little but also says a lot. The gong, the thunder striking, the organ playing; everything about this is so ominous and mysterious that it is one of the most iconic themes in wrestling and incredibly fitting for an undead wrestler in The Undertaker.
Will we hear this at WrestleMania? It takes a very high-tempo song that can serve as an appropriate theme for someone as high-tempo as the Ultimate Warrior. The Ultimate Warrior always did everything at mph, including running to the ring and this theme is a great example of a theme fitting one wrestler and a wrestler fitting one theme song.
This is truly one of the most memorable themes of 80s WWE wrestling. But the lyrics really fit Mr. The Rock has had the same theme song for almost his entire career.
But unlike others who have kept the same song, The Rock has done slight variations to his theme, especially during times when he came back from filming a movie. But his best-known theme is from just before taking time out to film movies. Is there really any other choice for the top spot? When you hear that glass breaking, you knew it was about to go down and everyone in the ring was getting their asses kicked. I have a little love for the Disturbed remix that Stone Cold used for a few months in , but the classic is the best and is Stone Cold Steve Austin.
