Villain Song: Professional Wrestling
aka: Pro Wrestling
Got power like the bear, but quick like the cat, put two and two together, feel your face on the mat! You count the stars while the ref counts three. Hope you like to look at ceilings cause that's all you're gonna see! We are The Nation Of Domination!Just about every Heel wrestler's entrance theme, if it has lyrics, tends to be a Villain Song. For example....
- WWE wrestler Triple H's entrance theme, "The Game", is largely a Villain Song, sung by Motorhead from Triple H's point-of-view. It's three-and-a-half minutes of gloating about how Trips is the baddest of the bad and controls the WWE with an iron fist. Lemmy even throws in an Evil Laugh or two along the way.
- Randy Orton's voices theme is an awesome Villain Song.
- The Undertaker's theme - BONG. *cue the druids, ominous Latin chanting, and one hell of a creepy Evil Laugh* Though the Limpbizkut theme is about the only one with lyrics.
- His theme during the Ministry gimmick mixes his original theme with hard rock.
- Shawn Michaels' theme, "Sexy Boy."
- "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase. (Evil laugh), MONEY MONEY MONEY MONEY MONEY, "Everybody's got a price!"
- A subversion: "Stand Back" was sung by Vince McMahon with the original intention to be used as André the Giant's song (and was actually used as such for a promo video and in the NES Wrestlemania game), but wound up being used for McMahon himself, who wasn't actually a villain at the time. (His on-screen persona was a face-biased announcer, nothing more) That changed a few years later, when he got a new persona and a new theme:
- "'Cause you've got.... NO CHANCE!" To quote Bill Simmons:
I'd want to come out to Vince McMahon's "No Chance" song, just so I could perform the "I have complete and utter disdain for everyone in this building, and that's why I'm walking with an exaggerated swagger and frowning" routine while 20,000 people lustily boo me. That seems like more fun than humans should be allowed.
- As much of a douche as The Miz is...his song fits the trope.
- In the early 90s The Texas Hangmen had a pretty awesome one to introduce them to the USWA it helped establish how Ax-Crazy they were.
- "CLOTHESLINE will break your neck! The match is over and your body's a wreck. POWERSLAM will put you out! Havok and mayhem is what we're about!"
- Drew McIntyre's star may have faded, but his longest-lasting theme, "Broken Dreams" by Shaman's Harvest, fits to the T.
What's that metronome I hear?
Perhaps the end...is drawing near?
You never hear the shot, that takes you down.Out of time...so say goodbye.
What is yours....now is mine.
And I DREAM BROKEN DREAMS!
I make them come true...
I make them for youuuu.
- The Honky Tonk Man: His 50s-styled themed entrance song, a cheerfully narcissistic self-titled ode to himself: He's cool, he's cocky, he's b-b-b-b-b-b-b-baaaaaaad.
- The Mountie: Jacques Rougeau Jr.'s heel marching tune, "The Mountie." When Rougeau began teaming with Pierre Oulette as part of The Quebecers, the tune was changed to "We're Not the Mounties" but – aside from minor lyrical differences and the vocal track replaced with a duet – kept pretty much intact.
- Madison Rayne may have the most clear-cut one in TNA:
She'll break your heart
Tear it apart
Just to watch you scream
She'll never look back, you better come back
To kill your will and your dreams
She's a killer queen...
- He'll steal your girl, break your heart and leave you a fool. He's simply ravishing. The Dazzling Ravishing Rude!
- Combine an ominous bassline, an eerily distorted guitar, a dark piano melody and haunting vocals and you have Live In Fear/Broken Out in Love, the perfectly sinister track that accompanies The Wyatt Family in their promos and entrance.
- God made the devil just for fun... when he wanted the real thing he made Aja Kong.
- And when your god's gone, you can believe this... I'm Kevin Steen, and fuck Ring of Honor!
- Kurt Angle's called on Sensational Sherry Martel to help him sing his own version of Shawn Michaels's theme song, called "Sexy Kurt" (he'll make your ankle hurt)
- Winter's TNA theme was titled "The Hands of the Wicked", in case there was any doubt left.
- Tazz was in the process of writing one for Ivelisse Vélez but Aces & Eights losing the TNA World Cup ensured she wouldn't be sticking around long enough for him to finish.
- AJ Styles's Bullet Club theme in New Japan. Fuck your dreams, fuck your life! Especially when compared to his ROH theme, "Demigods".
