Johannes thinks Avatar could provide a great theme for one man

I recently had the chance to catch up with Avatar's frenetic, showman-esque frontman Johannes Eckerström to discuss all things wrestling - including whether he believes Bray Wyatt's Fiend mask was influenced by himself.

One thing I just had to ask was which Superstar could do with using an Avatar song as their theme instead of their current one, and the Swedish metal rocker revealed he would love to switch out a former Universal Champion's current theme for an Avatar hit.


We talked years ago [about this] when Black Waltz came out. The issue is that I was daydreaming about this with wrestlers I grew up with but they're themes are iconic.
For the sake of a pun, I would have Kane use Paint Me Red on purely a song title level - but you cannot mess with those old ones because you do not change his or Steve Austin's theme song or whoever from back then.
Nowadays, my wife's favorite is Seth Rollins. His song is very cute but maybe a little bit too radio-friendly. Shouldn't he use Hail The Apocalypse instead?

Johannes went on to hint that he may very well be interested in helping out All Elite Wrestling with some music if they so wished...


That's in the context of WWE. Right now, over the summer, I have watched less than I do during the fall and spring, and all that just because of other commitments.
Right now, I'm very excited for fall for AEW starting with their TV show and all that, and I have a feeling they might need more help with music than they do in WWE.
