WWE News: NXT gets a new theme song

A new rocking tune for a new era of NXT

What’s the story?

This week on NXT saw a bunch of changes, including new Superstars, a new set, new storylines and also a brand new theme song. Just over one week removed from NXT Takeover: Orlando on Wrestlemania weekend, it was a reboot for the brand. You can listen to the new theme song below:


In case you didn't know...

Just like a year of stories traditionally culminate at Wrestlemania for the main roster, NXT’s version of Wrestlemania (Takeover on Wrestlemania weekend) signals the end of the previous phase and the ushering in of a new era.

Superstars from NXT get called up, and new talent is brought in. Last week’s episode was a recap of the events at NXT Takeover: Orlando, while this week saw the initiation of several components that symbolised a complete makeover for the third brand of WWE.

One of which was the new theme song, composed by the CFO$. It replaces the song – 'Roar of the crowd’, also by The CFO$.


The heart of the matter

The new NXT Theme song is called ‘Rage’ and it’s a lot more rap-metal dominated than the previous theme song we’d come to associate with the brand. The opening chorus of the song is as follows:

I'm taking back what’s mine I ain't giving inDo what they tell me? Nah I ain't listening Can't deny I was made for thisShove it back in the faces who say I'd miss

An aggressive song, seething with rage.

What’s next?

Gear up for NXT every week with this amazing track by the CFO$.

Author’s take

Change is always difficult to accept at first. It will take me a few weeks for me to gauge whether it’s as good as ‘Roar of the Crowd’. Right now, I don’t think so. The old theme was synonymous with NXT for me.
