10 most popular entrance videos on WWE's YouTube channel

Shane has always been popular among the WWE Universe
Harry Kettle

It cannot be understated just how important a good entrance song is to the progress of a WWE Superstar.

If it's catchy and enjoyable then great, but if it's dull and generic then fans will throw it right back in the company's face. It's a vicious cycle, but perfecting the music with which the Superstars base their whole entrance around really is as vital as we're making it out to be.

As such, WWE like to entice fans even further by putting everyone's entrance videos on platforms like YouTube, complete with the song itself as the audio.

Because of that, we can work out just how popular a variety of different themes are simply by clicking on a few links. It may not be definitive, but it does provide an interesting insight into the minds of WWE Universe members.

Some of these songs would've been released before others but in this modern era of technology, that won't stop users from picking out their favourite videos. You could argue that they prefer the clips themselves as opposed to the actual music playing in the background, but we pretty much all know that this isn't the case.

So without further ado, here are the 10 most popular entrance videos on WWE's YouTube channel.

#10 Shane McMahon - 871,000+

Oh yes, here comes the money indeed

Here comes the money, everybody. It's no secret that fans were unbelievably excited when Shane McMahon returned to the WWE this time last year, and as a result, they naturally wanted to hear his theme song played over and over again.

It makes sense, after all - as Shane-o-Mac always did have one of the most popular theme songs in the company. It highlights the fact that whilst it is great to see new stars doing so well, a bit of nostalgia every now and again never hurt anybody.

Just over twelve months later, Shane is still with the company, and every single time his music hits there is a strong reaction from the WWE Universe - if that isn't a sign that he's still relevant in sports entertainment, then nothing is.

It is indeed, a new day - yes, yes it is.

#9 The New Day - 892,000+

new day
You can’t not love New Day

Does this really come as a surprise to anyone? The New Day have been one of the best acts on WWE television in quite some time, with the three-man group constantly reinventing their characters in order to fit the latest trends.

They have a connection, they do things off the cuff and most importantly they're selling a tonne of merch. No, wait - the most important thing is that they're having fun, that's it.

They haven't quite been able to crack seven figures in terms of views yet, but as their empire continues to grow, it won't be long until they accomplish that goal.

With so many stables over the years that have grown increasingly stale and have eventually fizzled out, New Day have always managed to change things up when that was in danger of happening. Kudos to them. Plus, their theme is so very amusing.

Your time is up, ladies and gentlemen.

#8 John Cena - 899,000+

Cena has always been a polarising figure

This one may shock a few people, with Big Match John only coming in at number 8 on this list. Now that isn't exactly a cause for panic among his loyal fanbase, but it does show that perhaps Cena's theme isn't the strongest part of his game.

It makes sense, especially when you consider the fact that members of the WWE Universe enjoy chanting "John Cena sucks" whenever his video hits the titantron.

Nevertheless, this is still another impressive feat for the 16-time World Champion and his adoring Cenation will continue to follow him to the ends of the earth if necessary.

The song itself can get a little bit irritating sometimes, but it's one of the most recognisable theme songs in the world today - of course, that, in part is also down to it being included in a prank call that went viral.

Onto the man who destroyed one of the greatest factions in recent memory.

#7 Seth Rollins - 1,047,000+

The Architect has a relatively average theme song

The Architect of The Shield originally had what many people felt was a dull entrance theme, but nowadays fans have come around to it a little bit more.

That can only mean good things for Rollins, especially considering the fact that he'll be looking to take his babyface run to the next level upon his return from injury. Still, the theme suits him pretty well.

He's got a known punk rock history and upbringing which ties into the song, in addition to that, being one of the biggest stars of the new era is naturally going to notch him up a bit in terms of views.

People have been dying to cheer Seth for so long and now that they've finally got the chance, it seems likely that he'll continue to move up these ranks as his career progresses.

Now to a Superstar who probably doesn't care about facts or figures all too much.

#6 Braun Strowman - 1,070,000+

BRAUUUUUNNNNNN – or something like that

This theme song starts with Braun Strowman himself yelling "BRAUN", followed by a few minutes of music that wouldn't sound out of place in a horror film.

If anything, the bland and intimidating nature of this theme just echoes how well Strowman has done on Monday Night Raw since the brand split. Honestly, he's probably been the standout star on the red team.

Breaking the one million views barrier is a big deal when you consider just how much people hated him only twelve months ago, and to see how far Braun has come is quite remarkable.

We aren't saying that he'll go on to be an all-time legend or anything, but as his momentum continues to gather pace, you can expect to see these numbers rise even further in the weeks and months following WrestleMania 33.

You don't want none of this next Superstar.

#5 AJ Styles - 1,634,000+

He truly is phenomenal

For well over a decade, fans were desperate to see AJ Styles step inside a WWE ring, and at the 2016 Royal Rumble, they finally got their wish.

As a result, fans were understandably excited to jump on YouTube and listen to his theme song play over and over again. It's not a surprising entry, and it actually makes us pretty happy to see him positioned so high up in the list.

Styles has been on fire during his maiden year in the company and deserves every form of success that comes his way from this point onwards.

There's no denying that it's been a long road to get to where he is right now, but the fact that his video has gained in excess of 1.5 million views already is a testament to just how important and popular The Phenomenal One continues to be.

Honestly, you won't quite believe this next one.

#4 Brie Bella - 2,031,000+

Total Divas is paying off

Brie mode. Yup. Never say that Total Divas isn't an effective promotional tool for the WWE, because the fact that Brie is the first Superstar so far on this list to break the 2 million mark speaks volumes.

Her work in the ring was always average at best, but she certainly had some notable moments throughout her career including feuds against sister Nikki Bella and Stephanie McMahon.

But does that warrant so many views? Sure it does, because at the end of the day her fans have shown how much they love and appreciate her which can only be a good thing for the overall product.

Sure, some people will say that she sticks out like a sore thumb on this, but if anything that'll provide her with more publicity. In all honesty, we want a Bella Twins reunion some day. There, we said it.

It's time for the big dog.

#3 Roman Reigns - 2,406,000+

Poor old Roman

Coming in at number three is one of the most polarising figures in the history of professional wrestling - Roman Reigns.

The man who people love to hate was pretty much given every Shield-related item in their divorce, which included the bulletproof vest and a slowed down version of the theme song. Evidently, a large portion of his fanbase has taken to the maintained theme quite well.

But are all of the views that we've noted positive? After all, a lot of people tend to parody and mock the monotone nature of the song, and he has received a great deal of criticism for it ever since he went solo.

We'll never know why for sure, but one thing we can be confident about is that the WWE will continue to feature Roman in a strong position because they know just how valuable he is to the product.

From one Shield-brother to another.

#2 Dean Ambrose - 2,586,000+

Who knew people loved Ambrose’s theme so much?

The Lunatic Fringe has been one of the most popular Superstars on the roster for a few years now, but it's still surprising to see him so high up the list when you consider how many legends are present on WWE's YouTube channel.

His hype has died down considerably in the last few months, but he's clearly still on the top of his game and things can only get better from here.

The theme itself isn't the most thrilling with a lot of people wanting something new for Ambrose, but as is the case with a lot of Superstars, the WWE Universe have grown to love it - well, for the most part.

Breaking 2.5 million views is no small feat and with his best years still ahead of him, get ready for Ambrose to continue shocking the world with his fantastic work inside of the squared circle.

Our number one entry and the winner of this list is, as advertised - an icon.

#1 Sting - 3,509,000+

What a guy - what an icon

When Sting showed up at Survivor Series 2014, nobody could quite believe their eyes.

The legendary figure had finally appeared inside of a WWE ring when many people had thought that they'd never see the day. Alas, it happened, and as a result fans were beyond excited to hear what his adjusted theme song would sound like and whether or not it would resemble his old one in WCW.

They clearly weren't left disappointed, with 3.5 million views making Sting far and away the most popular Superstar in terms of entrance videos. It's a shame that we never got to see the dream match between him and The Undertaker, but atleast we did get to witness The Icon perform at WrestleMania once in our lifetimes.
