A WWE Superstar’s entrance music can be a make-or-break situation. Pro wrestling fans can sing along or burst into a reaction whenever they hear it. For MVP, his iconic WWE entrance music took some time to grow on him.
MVP’s WWE entrance theme ‘I’m Comin’ stands out as one of the finest wrestling anthems ever. Regrettably, this tune is no longer featured in WWE shows. However, it played a significant role in the mid-2000s in enhancing MVP’s popularity, aiding him in securing the United States Championship twice and achieving a Tag Team Championship with Matt Hardy once.
While talking to Fightful, MVP admitted that he did not like his WWE entrance music at first. Then it eventually grew on him.
“Not really. As I’ve said many times, Silkk the Shocker theme, I didn’t like it at first. I grew to like it in time. I was in the arena one afternoon and Vince called me over, had them play it. ‘This is gonna be your music.’ I remember when they were playing it, Vince was doing his awkward dance to it. I was like, ‘Vince, if you like it, I love it.’ At the time I was doing the Jim Jones balling, I’m a big fan of New York hip hop, I wanted something a little more boom-bap. It’s a great song. It became identified with me. I didn’t really have any say in it at all. It was just, ‘Here’s your music,’ ‘Oh, okay. Cool.’”
MVP has popped a lot of fans with his entrance music, and they obviously love it. That song is also immediately identifiable for pro wrestling fans at this point. So, it worked out for the best, even if MVP didn’t love it at first.
Sometimes it takes a few listens for a song to really work. It’s a good thing that MVP gave his entrance music a few tries, because it’s hard to believe him having any other music as he makes his way to the ring.
