WWE has gone through a lot of changes over the years and one of the biggest changes is undoubtedly how it goes about producing entrance music for its Superstars. Iconic themes for Superstars such as The Undertaker, Triple H are a thing of the past. The theme songs that Superstars get nowadays have been criticized by fans and pro wrestlers alike.
While speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T stated that the company simply doesn’t give enough focus to the entrance music of WWE Superstars, criticizing the company for the fact.
He added that entrance music is a great way to get over with fans, using ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin’s entrance music as an example. He also stated that the theme song could have helped any WWE Superstar get over with fans.
“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, (there) 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”
At this point in time, WWE simply has too many flaws in its product for it to actually give any emphasis on theme songs, which has led to newer WWE Superstars struggling as they don’t have entrance music that resonates with fans.
