What would your entrance music be?
The entrance theme has been a long tradition in pro wrestling. Sometimes a wrestler uses pre-existing music (like "Macho Man" Randy Savage's use of "Pomp And Circumstance"), more often they will have a song written specifically for them (the best known is probably Hulk Hogan's "Real American"). Meant not only to introduce the wrestler (witness the crowd reaction as soon as the first strains of The Rock's song begins) but to embody their personality and send a message (usually, "A wrestling match is about to begin!), the entrance theme also works to get the audience fired up and strike fear into the heart of the opponent. So what would you use? Not just if you were a wrestler, but for any challenge in life that might require that extra boost of power? I have always been partial to "Bound For The Floor" by Local H as an entrance theme myself. Simple songs work the best, and if I had to pick one that represented me and my attitude, this would be it. What's yours?
