As professional wrestlers and wrestling programs change their themes all the time, it's pretty hard to pick one, but most of them usually have one that is considered their most iconic and definitive theme.

Wrestlers:

  • Dean Ambrose — "Retaliation" for his solo career; "Special Op" overall
  • Kurt Angle — "Medal", though many fans prefer his TNA theme "Gold Metal"
  • "Stone Cold" Steve Austin — "I Won't Do What You Tell Me", although many fans tend to prefer "Glass Shatters", Disturbed's take on the theme, over the former.
