A topic on Wrestler entrances and theme tunes further down the page got me thinking. Are we witnessing a bit of a golden age for Wrestler entrances and theme tunes? There were obviously a lot of classics from the Golden Era and the Attitude era but then no real killer entrances for ages (Daniel Bryan and CM Punk were good though) I think we've seen some great ones over the last few years. Bray Wyatt, Finn Balor, Nakamura and Roode all have amazing entrances. Then Ambrose, Rollins, Owens all have good theme songs. I even like a lot of the Cruiser weights entrances like TJP, Aries and Neville. Some of the women have decent entrances to: Charlotte, Sasha and Alexa.

I think my favourites are probably Balor, Nakamura and Wyatt.

The 80's had some classic entrance themes, but pretty much everyone bar Warrior and Hogan just walked to the ring. I do miss the little carriage made to look like a ring from early Manias though.
Currently love Roode's entrance be great to see how it translates to a bigger arena.


2.) 23 Apr 2017 01:41:41
I agree, but I think there are still a lot of talents that could use a change no matter if things are good, bad, or ugly. a lot of the theme songs just sound too generic imo. They don't have that specialness that makes the talent feel important. It'd be a good time to change a lot of them, as a lot of the people that could use it as part of a character make-over, are people that are in the early stages of a character change or are rumored to be getting one. I'd also like to see them use real bands more for entrance themes.


3.) 23 Apr 2017 08:22:45
The 80s and early 90s had the best entrance music imo when you hears the first second of anyone you knew who it was one of my all time favourite theme songs is the tag team demolition.


4.) 23 Apr 2017 15:52:10
There are some good ones about, but none beat Taker's and the match of HHH with Motorhead hasn't been bettered.


5.) 24 Apr 2017 12:42:39
I don't know why they've seem to have done away with lyrics?

People like Miz, Randy, Cena and Dolf still have some from years back, but nobody seems to have words, just riffs.

Vinnie macs is the best.

Why is Mick Foley Raw GM? It doesn't make any sense, he has been terrible in nearly every segment since his return. His main purpose seems to be being used as Stephanie's punching bag. Occasionally he gets worked up and shouts nonsense. I loved Foley as a performer but he sucks as GM. They need to get Foley and Steph off TV and go with HHH as the GM. If they're feeling brave then go with Heyman or even Eric Bischoff as GM. Basically anything that gets Steph and Foley off TV.


1.) 04 Mar 2017 17:49:02
I can see Foley being fired the night after Wrestlemania and replaced by Kurt Angle.


2.) 04 Mar 2017 19:39:54
He has to have a hip replacement so he isn't going to be there much longer.
Angle isn't a bad shout, but I would love to see Regal be given the job.

I've seen a lot of talk about HHH forming a new stable with Owens and Joe on RAW. If it were to happen who would you. like to see in it, and what would you call them?

I'd like to see The Revival join, and if they want to put a woman in there for something different then Charlotte would be perfect. I think the name is a harder thing to choose. What sounds cool to one person could sound lame to someone else. I quite like The Inner Circle as a name for them.


1.) 26 Feb 2017 22:13:02
rEvolution for the name. I'd have members for every title, and on each brand. It'd be only on RAW until SummerSlam, where it would expand to SD. By the end of the year it would include NXT/ 205/ UK.

WWE: Ambrose. He'd be the big swerve to close out SummerSlam. In a 4way match for the title between DA, Orton, Wyatt, and Cena. Ambrose is presented as the likely fall guy to a turn by Orton or Cena.
Universal: Owens. I'd keep the belt on him until SvS.
IC: Big E. It's time for a solos run.
U. S, : Samoa Joe. A dominant Joe would give the title meaning.
RAW Tag: Authors of Pain. The perfect "muscle" for the group.
SD Tag: Bo Dallas and Elias Samson. Repackaged with a modern New Age Outlaws feel.
CW: Crews. Stays the same size but "magically" makes weight.
NXT: Andrade Almas. After WM and SS callups, he should really be near the top.
NXT Tag: Heavy Machinery. a lot of potential. Can be bodyguard types for Almas early on.
UK: Dunne. Completes the little bit of everything vibe I want.


2.) 27 Feb 2017 10:32:20
That's not a stable that's another Brand!


3.) 27 Feb 2017 10:34:57
Dunne may be the perfect fit for a HHH, Joe, and Owens up and comer.

It would essentially be repackaging Evolution, but I'd be massively ok with that if after a year of promoting each other they feuded between themselves.


4.) 27 Feb 2017 19:22:57
Each brand would basically have their own 4-5 man group, with them mostly only interacting with non-brand members at the big 4. I'd also stagger the storylines so each brand wasn't dominated by it. Up until SummerSlam, it would mostly be a RAW thing with Smackdown just setting up the swerve between the draft and SS. After SS, the focus would shift to SD through the October ppvs. The build to Survivor Series would be both shows and December's ppvs would close out the first phase. As the new year started and with everyone on RAW and SD, focusing on personal goals. That's when the NXT/ UK part of things would start to happen. Setting things up for phase 2 after Mania.

I'd like to see other groups have to come together to finally get a big win over the group, that would then begin the infighting, splintering, and eventual downfall.


5.) 27 Feb 2017 20:57:02
I don't like having groups too big. The NWO was a perfect example where the group became more important than it's parts. It was continued far too long and it ended up being bloated and ridiculous.
4 or 5 is plenty big enough to give enough options, rivalry, internal tension and eventual treachery.


6.) 28 Feb 2017 00:58:55
I agree. I'd keep it between 3-5 people. Any more than that and things just get a bit silly and decent characters get lost in the background.


7.) 28 Feb 2017 19:23:59
The NWO got out of hand in WCW as they ended up having 61 different members and like 5 different versions, in roughly 4 year. The WWE got out of hand during that period with the 3-5 member groups though, having a dozen or so different ones.

To me it's about trying to find a happy medium between the extreme of the NWO and the played out template of the 3-5 person group, to create something special. Something that could be what the Corporate Ministry could/ should of been, with a collection of talent like Rock, HHH, Undertaker, Shamrock, Big Show, Kane, Accolytes, Edge and Christian.

Outside of about 2 months of the Nexus, the last 15 or so years, all there's been is 3-5 person groups, and there's been a lot of them.

Been busy the last few days so just catching up with RAW now. When Goldberg put his name on the list I was so hoping KO or Y2J would say "Er, there's a G in Goldberg" ;-)


1.) 09 Feb 2017 17:04:16
I get the feeling that there are a lot of wrestlers that wish they could say a lot of things to the old/ part-timers, especially the ones on RAW.


2.) 10 Feb 2017 10:07:42
Did you see Owens tweet the WWE about a photo they'd made Goldberg's grey beard dark with photoshop. Top Bants.


3.) 10 Feb 2017 14:33:23
Don't see the tweet but I noticed myself. Was very obvious! He looks OK with a bit if grey IMO. Not sure why they changed it.

He's always been a decent worker when he's fit and bothered. Add that to him being a proper Giant and he's a big attraction still when he's in form. That was a great bug man match between the two. Show played his part well and I absolutely love Strowman! I'd love it if He beat Brock. I don't think they'll do it but I think it's time for him to win it with momentum behind him.

Give them a good 6 month to a year run and then have Ambrose turn on Rollins.

I really like Seth, I think a big problem for him is that he's unconvincing as a face. he's much betrer as a heel but the fans want to cheer him and its too soon to turb him heel again. Hopefully Ambrose will turn on him eventually and their feud will get him properly over as a face (and Ambrose over as a heel)

If it's in kayfabe or real life, why is Ambrose so high?

Can't argue with with most of the names but I'm surprised at Ambrose being top 10.

It was something new for a while and Jinder has been pretty good. But he's not top heel material IMO. He'd be fine as US champ but not as the top heel. AJ should beat Jinder for the title. Then have Corbin cash in on AJ. Give Corbin a short reign before AJ wins it back. Have Nakamura win the RR to step up AJ v Nakamura at WM. Then give Jinder a good run as heel US Champ.
