5 WWE Superstars who hated their theme songs
In WWE, a Superstar's theme song can often help make or break a career. In the right hands, a theme song can become just as big as the wrestler itself. After all, once fans hear that infamous glass shatter, they know Stone Cold Steve Austin is about to raise hell.
Although Superstars such as Steve Austin, The Rock, Shawn Michaels, and John Cena have all had iconic theme songs, not everyone is so fortunate.
Some Superstars have even been saddled with songs they don't like and were obliged to hear the tunes each time they entered the ring and every single time they won a match.
Here are five WWE Superstars who hated their entrance theme songs.
#5: Samoa Joe
There are few theme songs in WWE right now better than Samoa Joe's Destroyer. Much like the man himself, Destroyer invokes a feeling of dread in those who hear it, and the addition of the monstrous sounds only help make the former NXT and United States Champion seem even more dangerous.
However, when Joe first started in WWE, his theme at the time wasn't nearly as impressive. Joe's first theme, Taking it Back, didn't sit well with the former TNA star at all, and on Talk is Jericho podcast, Joe said he wanted to change it as soon as possible.
Fortunately for Joe, help would come in the form of Triple H who helped work with the new signing until the Samoan Submission Machine had a theme he was pleased to walk to the ring to.
With incredible strength, a unique character, and an athletic ability only few can match, Cesaro has the makings of a top star in WWE. However, in seven years the Swiss Superman has been on the company's main roster, Cesaro is yet to hold World Championship gold despite a handful of opportunities in 2014.
Seen as a full-fledged mid-card Superstar, Cesaro recently got a new superhero-esque theme after splitting with his Bar brother, Sheamus, which is seemingly good news, as the Swiss star has admitted he hated his old theme.
A controversial theme, Swiss Made started with a siren and was never a hit with fans. Speaking to ESPN in 2016, Cesaro admitted he wasn't a fan of the song. Though he didn't like his old theme, Cesaro also said he didn't want to go back to Miracle, his old theme song which included rapping.
Now on his own on Monday Night RAW and with his new theme song (which he hopefully likes), perhaps 2020 will finally be the year Cesaro grabs the brass ring.
