Sami Zayn’s “Worlds Apart” was considered one of the more popular theme songs among the WWE fandom. With the recent changes to his character in WWE, Zayn has no attention on revisiting it.
When speaking to Alistair McGeorge of Metro, Zayn felt the change of his theme music was necessary, He also thought it should’ve come to a lot sooner despite the popularity.
“No, I don’t [miss it], Honestly, I wanted to change that song for a while. I thought I had it for too long – two years too long, maybe three years too long! [laughs]. Once I became a bad guy. I felt it should have switched right away. [Former WWE boss Vince McMahon] had a bit of a different mindset about it, which I see his point. It reached a point where it didn’t match the character anymore. Especially when I was doing the conspiracy stuff.”
“I have a soft spot for that Conspiracy Theory stuff because it was just so creatively stimulating at the time,’ he explained. ‘All this to say, the music – I thought it was really good for my time in NXT, it was really good for my time early up on the main roster. But then the character evolved, and as the character evolves I think that music – [Worlds Collide is] not even great music that can be applied to whatever. It can’t just go to any character, and as the character evolves – it felt very specific to that character, the plucky underdog.”
As a member of The Bloodline currently, he also enters with the Usos theme or Roman Reigns’ theme. The most important thing for Zayn is dancing.
“The song that I used to come out was very anthemic. It was such a huge part of the character, and the fan interaction. So for sure, I’d be partial something that can engage the audience, that has that kind of football stadium thing that everyone can get involved in. I was like, oh man, I wanna come out to that song [Depeche Mode – Just Can’t Get Enough] now! I was come out and get all these people singing, ‘I just can’t get enough! I just can’t get enough!’ That’d be awesome, but I dunno if we can licence Depeche Mode or anything like that. But something that has that sort of quality to it, which is really hard to do with original music Something I can really dance to or commit to with my entrance. I think that’s an important quality too. My big problem with Worlds Apart was it actually very hard to dance to,” he said.
It’s good to hear Zayn’s thoughts on his first theme. It may have been difficult for him to dance too, but the fans loved it. As long as the “Honorary Uce” is happy with what theme he comes out to, fans would understand and get on board.
