The concept of a theme song is part of a wrestler's overall package that is sometimes overlooked. A good theme song can often complete the popularity and profile of a professional wrestler, with the very best stars in the history of the business having some unbelievable entrance music. That could be for a whole host of different reasons; but the important thing is that a good theme song often reflects the wrestler in general.
Whether it's a cocky, arrogant theme tune to reflect someone of that type, or a highly intimidating piece of music to add to the demeanor and swagger of a wrestler, finding the right theme can lift a professional wrestler from a half-decent level right into mega stardom. There are plenty of examples of it working in the opposite way, too; with some pretty hideous and forgettable themes being applied to.. well, some pretty forgettable wrestlers.
