A WWE superstar, or any professional wrestler for that matter, needs a suitable and compelling entrance theme song to enhance the overall presentation of their characters.
Most legendary performers are remembered from their theme songs, and you'd also probably have a few catchy WWE theme songs on your daily playlist, right?
Out of all the iconic themes in WWE history, Kurt Angle's entrance music ranks high on most top-ten lists, and rightfully so, as it created an exhilarating live atmosphere.
Kurt Angle chose a different entrance theme during his time at TNA, and John Cena's cousin, 'Tha Trademarc,' did the rapping on the TNA version.
"I loved them both" - Kurt Angle on his TNA and WWE entrance theme songs
Kurt Angle placed his WWE theme, titled 'Medal', higher than the song he used in TNA/IMPACT Wrestling. The Olympic gold medalist felt that his WWE theme music perfectly fit his personality and on-screen character.
"I loved them both. I didn't pick my WWE song; Vince McMahon picked it for me," said Angle. "But I picked my TNA song, and it was a spin-off of the movie Vision Quest. The song is called Lunatic Fringe, and it's an amateur wrestling movie. I'm a big fan of amateur wrestling, obviously, so I decided to use that melody in my mix. I had John Cena's cousin, Tha Trademarc, do the rapping, and he was awesome. So, it was a badass entrance song, but which one did I like better? I still like my WWE theme song. I think it fits me perfectly."
