Randy Orton made his return at Survivor Series back in November last year and in the months since then, firmly established himself as one of the top Superstars in WWE again. In fact, it appears Rev Theory recorded a revamped version of his theme song without even knowing he would be back.

It was previously reported that WWE was contemplating music change for Randy Orton. The concept involved initially reverting to his old music to re-establish his presence, followed by the introduction of new tunes in subsequent performances.

However, WWE ultimately decided to nix the idea entirely and stick with ‘Voices’ by Rev Theory. While speaking on the High Spot Podcast, Rev Theory guitarist Julien Jorgensen revealed the reason behind re-recording their song at the time. He explained that he felt the song needed to be better, without knowing about Randy Orton’s injury or what was happening in wrestling.

“It just so happened that I literally said, ‘I want to re-record this song.’ I hadn’t watched wrestling for a few years. I had no idea Randy was even hurt. I had no idea what was going on. I just said to myself, ‘this song needs to be better. It needs a new version.’ That’s how I felt. Whatever was guiding that just so happened to line up. I wish I could tell you we knew, but it’s almost crazier that we didn’t know. Once we released it, everyone was like, ‘Do they know something?’ We were like, ‘Yeah, do we know something? S***. We should start trolling ourselves.’ So we did. We started trolling ourselves and we thought it was hilarious. People thought we knew and we were in on it. I hate to break it to people, but it makes it more fun the fact that we had no idea and it was an inner vision that pushed that to come out.


Despite the coincidence, they embraced the speculation from fans, even though they didn’t actually know anything. Jorgensen emphasized that it was an inner vision that drove them to re-record the song, making the experience even more enjoyable.

 ”It’s a greater picture thing. We get pushed and moved to do certain things beyond our control and it just so happened that it lined up because of that. I didn’t overthink it because we didn’t know something. We weren’t let in on it and we rode that all the way until it came out. We were like, ‘Is he done? He might be done. We don’t know if he’s coming back.’ He came back and jacked. He looked awesome. We couldn’t have been happier.”

Even Randy Orton confirmed that WWE had plans to alter his iconic theme song. The Viper is currently scheduled to square off against Logan Paul and Kevin Owens for the United States Championship at WrestleMania 40, so we will have to wait and see how that match will turn out for The Viper.
