Awesome Music / Professional Wrestling

Go To

What best summarizes wrestling again? Is it the action? Is it the eye candy? Or maybe it's because most performers can encapsulate much of their persona in a brief highlight reel set to some of the most Awesome Music played in an arena (outside of concerts, of course), which almost no other sport does on such a level.

See also Most Wonderful Sound, for when said Awesome Music begins with a certain cue, like the sound of glass shattering, or a slide whistle, or a stadium full of people chanting "Kaze ni nare!" That said, remember: Weblinks Are Not Examples, especially as some links are no longer valid over time.

  • Just to point out a bit of the obvious: Notice how long the WWE section is here? That's because WWE's in-house composer, Jim Johnston, is the Awesome Music Man. In fact, in more recent days, most of the themes are made by CFO$, which is a two-man producer team. That's right, it takes two guys to replace Jim Johnston because he's just that awesome.
  • CFO$ are no slouches, either. After 2014, most new theme credits belong to them, including most-to-all of NXT's roster from 2015 onwards. They've built up a pretty strong presence on this list, too, and if they're the future of WWE entrance themes (as Jim Johnston is now handling soundtracks for WWE's increasingly active film division), then the future is in good hands.
  • Sofia Cortez didn't get much opportunity to allow fans to get into her theme but it was just made of win.
