10 WWE themes that have been used for a very long time
- There are a handful of things every wrestler needs to be successful. A memorable name, a great gimmick, and unforgettable entrance music.
It may sound like something of a backwards statement, but being a pro wrestler isn't all about wrestling. WWE Superstars are very much putting on a show that the wrestling matches themselves are only one aspect of.
If you want to be a Superstar and not just a wrestler you really need to have the whole package. Wrestling ability, skill on the microphone, a certain look, and know how to make an entrance.
A WWE Superstar's theme is a very important part of their overall package. There are certain songs that we immediately associate with specific wrestlers. Ones that make an arena fill with cheers before the star has even stepped out from behind the curtain. Here are ten of those that have been used by WWE for the longest time.
Most wrestling fans know that Goldust has been around in professional wrestling for a very long time, but it might shock you to discover how long exactly. Goldie actually wrestled for WWE for the first time all the way back in 1990, competing as Dustin Rhodes, and defeating Ted DiBiase during December of that year.
Throughout the 1990s and into the 21st century, Rhodes never really settled and went between WWE and WCW quite a bit. It was during his second run with WWE that began in 1995 that he started portraying the man we know him today, Goldust.
Although he returned to WCW and even tried out different gimmicks in WWE after that, Dustin would always return to old reliable, Goldust. For over 20 years, when that 24 Karat Productions image is thrown up, you know exactly who is on their way to the ring.
