Considering all the planning that goes into creating a sports entertainment character, it’s no understatement to say that the most important aspect is arguably the theme song.
In many cases, whether a superstar flourishes or flops can come down to the wrestler’s song itself.
When you think of the greatest stars in the history of WWE – Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Roddy Piper, The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Undertaker, Trish Stratus, the list goes on – they all have theme songs that have become iconic on their own.
If any wrestling fan was to hear the theme song of any of the above WWE legends, chances are they could name who the song belongs to without having to think longer than a second.
Although not every Superstar and Diva can be a WWE legend, a theme song that is both awesome and fitting can be enough to give a wrestler some extra crowd support, which is ultimately what decides their future in the company.
A wrestler’s entrance and theme song are their opportunities to make a first impression every time they perform at a show and if their theme song isn’t up to scratch, it’s hard for the crowd to engage with the subject.
There are some truly enjoyable theme songs in the WWE and the company seems to get it right more often than not.
However, there are a number of Superstars, Divas and tag teams that have theme songs that either don’t fit their characters or just plain suck.
These are the 15 worst current WWE theme songs.
15 Finn Balor
14 The Vaudevillains
13 Adam Rose
12 Dean Ambrose
11 The Lucha Dragons
9 John Cena
8 King Barrett
5 Alicia Fox
3 Prime Time Players
2 Blake and Murphy
When sting made his long-awaited WWE debut at Survivor Series in 2014, he entered in the most dramatic fashion, foiling The Authority's underhanded tactics and allowing Dolph Ziggler to knock Stephanie McMahon and Triple H out of power. As awesome as the moment was, his WWE theme song is horribly dull. It's not often you can say a WCW theme song is better than something the WWE produces, especially in current times, but his new theme sounds like a poor rip-off of his iconic WCW entrance song. The sooner WWE bites the bullet and has Sting enter arenas to his old WCW song, the better.
