Great review of Royal Rumble, but I noticed you must've bought an official copy of the Tape or DVD because when it ran originally, it did have the Rob Zombie song for Edge and everything. Apparently when it came out on home video, they cut any non-Sony, non-WWF artists. Therefore, both Edge and Undertaker's theme were replaced. Also replaced was the ENTIRE theme of the rumble, which was Kid Rock's "Cocky." The worst part about that is that the pre-rumble package was based around that song, with Austin's "What"s synching up with the song. Now it just sounds stupid.

I'm going to be optimistic and hope that it was just a problem getting the muzac rights for that one DVD.

It has the Rob Zombie song, it's just that JR calls it the wrong thing (he calls it the album name). I have a copy of the live airing.

That annoyed the hell out of me. I just bought the Rumble DVD last night, and was rather perturbed when they replaced Rollin' on Taker's entrance.

I had no idea they replaced Never Gonna Stop and Cocky on the DVD, either (I haven't watched it all the way, since I saw the PPV live, just the Rumble, the Spike/Tazz match w/ commentary, and Vince-Flair).

I would imagine it was just a rights problem, since Sony released other DVDs with the themes intact. Since the WWF released the Forceable Entry CD with most of the current non-WWF artist themes on it in some form, if they have to replace songs, hopefully they'll use that (for Edge and Taker, ferinstance)
