Got a question..
I got the english version of the No Mercy dvd, and as I was watching Edge's entrance I started humming along with 'You think you know me' until I realized his moves didn't match, he seemed too hyper compared to the tune..Only then did it hit me..Where the fuck did the Zombie song go?!

Now I have no good comparison material and I recall seeing the No Mercy ppv from Sky and there was 'Never gonna stop'..

So the question is: Was his music replaced on the US dvd as well or is it some international rights thing?

I also saw the Global warning UK dvd yesterday, and it seems like at the arena itself already his music was 'you think you know me' and Stacy Keible walked out to Sable's theme without the growling sounds!

Yeah, his music was replaced on the US version too . My guess is that it involves not wanting to pay Rob Zombie or something like that.

Edge's music is like that on all DVDs. At least it isn't as blantantly obvious, since at one time he USED the music, as say:

Whatever the hell they gave Ric Flair and
Whatever the hell they gave the nWo

It's licensing rights, I guess. The same thing happens on the Summerslam DVD (Flair's theme is overdubbed with his early 90's WWF theme, as well). It's strange because on some DVDs the music remains how it originally was (example - the WM 18 DVD has Undertaker with his licensed music, as well as the standard NWO theme for Hogan and Hall).

Still, I'd much rather have some of the licensed music overdubbed than have the goddamn WWF logo blurred out on EVERY REPLAY they show nowadays. That is SO annoying. Apparently the greatest moment of all time on Raw was Austin driving a blurry truck to the ring.

P.S. - Don't hum wrestler's theme songs, ok?

That's weird because on my SummerSlam dvd, Flair's music is fine. It's just Edge's that's messed up.

Okay, a little off-topic, BUT:

This whole issue is really starting to bug me. It is not WWE's fault that the shitsacks at the Wildlife Fund are imposing such unreasonable ground rules on them for usage of the WWF initials. Lest you are not aware, the fed lost a multimillion dollar lawsuit which also carried with it the proviso that they would cease to use said initials in any way, shape or form. So please please PLEASE stop using it as something to bitch about in terms of WWE doing something wrong.

Two things:

1) It is absolutely Vince's fault. He's the one who made the deal with the Fund in the first place (without any legal threats from them) and then broke a legally binding contract for YEARS on end, which was drawn up by HIS lawyers, mind you, because he thought he was better than them.

2) The Fund's lawsuit is only for international broadcasts -- they can call themselves the WWF from here to eternity within North America. The issue is that Vince is too lazy to make seperate versions of the video packages for both markets because he feels that his audience is stupid enough to somehow believe that it's always been "WWE" and the turnbuckles used to look blurry.

So in conclusion, stop blaming the Fund for a situation created by Vince and Vince alone.

While I agree it's his fault that he lost the rights to WWF, they don't really have money to burn right now and the production people they have are overworked as it is.

You expect Kevin Dunn to make two copies of a show AND come up with a sequel to Necrophillia?

TRYING to bring this discussion back on topic:

The theme Flair is overdubbed with is his former WWF theme, which he used in his first WWF stint from July 1991 to January 1993.

The nWo theme, however, sucks ass.

I just bought a few DVD's from Wal-Mart which is having a clearance sale right now on so many WWE DVD's for $6.99 each.

Backlash 2002 is one of them (I wanted Lesnar's debut, even though it sorta sucked), and at one point, Bradshaw's backstage with Ron Simmons. He's set to wrestle Scott Hall, and in the midst of talking with Ron, some generic music is heard starting up inside the arena. He says to Ron, "I gotta go, I'll see ya," and takes off to the ring. I'm thinking that it must be Bradshaw's music, though I never paid attention to Bradshaw... so I didn't recognize it.

Turns out that it was the nWo's music. HA! My only problem with the WWE changing the music is that it sounds NOTHING like the person's original music. Remember when WCW used to make ripoff versions of songs for Jericho, Raven, DDP, etc? They even did a ripoff of Voodoo Child for Hogan at one point, before going out and paying all the money for the real thing.

Why can't Vince get Jim Johnston to play something similar-sounding? ARRGH. For 6.99, I won't complain much... but on this particular DVD, this happens in almost every single match. Sorta ruins the mood when watching it.

Back inside the arena, I'm expe

My roommate hums that loudly for 30 minutes after an Angle match. It's funny, in a grating, Chinese water torture kinda way.

HA! I love Angle's theme. The "You suck" chant is still funny. Also, I loved when Edge and Christian did Angle's them on a kazoo. That was great.
