Even though my interest in wrestling and wrestling themes has waned over the years, I still find myself putting some wrestling themes on my iPod. I have a lot of wrestling themes CDs, but most don't get put on nowadays. The themes that are currently taking up space:
Edge's last theme song, done by Alter Bridge. The first DX theme The most famous Stone Cold Steve Austin theme Drew McIntyre's theme (the most recent purchase) Randy Orton's second to last theme (Burn In My Light, MUCH preferred to the Voices one) Hulk Hogan Million Dollar Man HHH (The Game) The first Kane theme Kurt Angle
So that's 10 themes in all. Wow, when I look at it, I have way too many wrestling themes there.
"Put on your helmets, we'll be reaching speeds of 3!" "It was nice of you to give that dead woman another chance." "All right, look alive everybody...oh sorry Susan."- MST3K: Space Mutiny Click Here (facebook.com)
I actually have quite a lot, because some of them (especially once they started letting real bands play them) are decent tunes. Songs like 'I walk alone (Batista)''Born to win (Evan Bourne)'and such. I recently got McIntyre's theme (another great track) And while it isn't by a real band, Bryan's current version of 'Valkeries' found it's way onto my ipod too. It's a good rendition, except for the boring drums.
Then there's the classics. Motorhead's The Game, OLP's Whatever (I do admit, I feel creepy playing that one-though I usually have no issue with anything Benoit related), and Slow Chemical by Finger 11 (Kane's best theme) and some others.
I also have some classics on there, just for fun & giggles. The Brood's theme, Austin (several versions-best one is the shortlived heel version) Rock, Cactus Jack, Kurt Angle's theme, Bret Hart, HBK, Hurricane, Hardy boyz, and Muhammed Hassan's. I love that one.
Oh, and 'Teacher' Matt STriker's theme was my default ringtone for a long time. Now it's the theme of ROH's American Wolves/Davey Richards.
Lastly, I am a fan of Alter Bridge, Killswitch Engage and Living Colour, so I have the themes of Edge and Punk, but those are not in the 'WWE' section but just on their respective albums under the artists name.
(Btw, I'm gonna mark out like a little kid getting to hear Cult of Personality at WM)
Seems in total I have 46 wrestling themes on there (not counting the ones from the 3 bands mentioned above) which is more than I expected.
I saw this thread title on Twitter and figured I had nothing to contribute. I quickly realized I was wrong.
-RVD "Breaking Point - One of a Kind" -Kane "Finger Eleven - Slow Chemical" -Chris Benoit "Our Lady Peace - Whatever" -Tazz -Christian "Waterproof Blonde - Open Your Eyes" -Drew McIntyre "Broken Dreams"
I guess I have "Cult of Personality" too.

Go Pack Go! Owner of one (1) share. Let's Go Riders! Owner of one (1) share.
Well, I have Man in the Box (Tommy Dreamer), Keep 'em Separated (Raven), Cult of Personality (Punk), Enter Sandman (Sandman) and Eye of the Tiger (Old School Hogan). But, none of them are there because wrestlers use them.
This list is skewed because SHIMMER, like ECW and ROH used to, uses regular songs as themes so I have a bunch of those.
Songs made solely for wrestling/commissioned for wrestling: Voices - Randy Orton Just Close Your Eyes - Christian (Waterproof Blonde version) Slow Chemical - Kane I'm Comin' - MVP Basic Thuganomics - John Cena LoveFuryPassionEnergy - Lita nWo Wolfpac theme
WWE/WCW/ROH songs (not created for wrestling): Miseria Cantare - CM Punk (ROH) Great Gate of Kiev - Jerry Lawler Immortals - Lo-ki (original ROH theme) Also Sprach Zarathustra - Ric Flair Holding Out For a Hero - Chris Hero (ROH) Battle Without Honor or Humanity - Paul London (ROH)
SHIMMER themes: Prelude 12-21 - Madison Eagles - AFI Mex Storm - Ayako Hamada Peak of Hope - Ayumi Kurihara 4Ever - Jessie McKay - Veronicas Shadows of the Night - Rebecca Knox - Pat Benatar What a Feeling - Serena Deeb - Irene Cara A-to-Z Theme - Allison Danger Rock Star 101 - Athena - Rihanna E-Pro - Nikki Roxx - Beck Faint - Knight Dynasty - Linkin Park Edge of Seventeen - Portia Perez - Stevie Nicks 24 - Alexa Thatcher - Jem Mindfields - Wesna Busic - Prodigy The Pot - Cat Power - Tool Different People - No Doubt - Jamilla Craft Toxic - Nicole Matthews - Local H

Haha. I totally thought I'd be the only one to have this one on their player. Aside from quite a few actual songs which just happen to be wrestler themes as well, I have the whole WWE Anthology set loaded.
Voices - Randy Orton You Can Look - Bella Twins End of Days - Wade Barrett Superfly Jimmy Snuka's theme ....
and the theme song to the NWA Crockett Cup 87 event just because I heard it in a Cheetos commercial and wanted to find it.
"Big Epic Thing", Daniel Bryan "Broken Dreams", Drew McIntyre (full first verse version) "Running Away", Lash LeRoux "Real American", Hulk Hogan "American Made", Hulk Hogan "D-Generation X Theme (WrestleMania XIV Live Version)", Shawn Michaels "My Time", Triple H "This Fire Burns", CM Punk "What I Want To", Orlando Jordan "I'm Comin'", MVP "Just Close Your Eyes (Waterproof Blonde version)", Christian "Dawgz", LAX "Rockhouse", nWo "Steinerized", The Steiner Brothers (which I didn't realize had four verses until I recently downloaded it) "Man Called Sting", Sting (I've had all four verses to this song memorized for years)
I'm sure there's more. Something like 28. Just on my PC, though; haven't moved them to the Droid. Yet.

Over the past several years, my iPod has continued just about every theme imaginable - I have a friend who, whenever I hung out with him, I'd bring my iPod filled with newly-downloaded themes to "test" him to see if he could figure out who they were. I must've run through hundreds of themes doing that. Currently on my iPod, however:
Man in the Box, Alice in Chains (Tommy Dreamer) You Make The Rain Fall, Kevin Rudolf (NXT Season 3 Theme) Armstrong Brothers, WCW Arn Anderson, WCW Lash LeRoux, WCW Hulk Hogan, American Made, WCW NWO Wolfpack Man Called Sting, Sting, WCW NWO w/voices, WCW Eddie Guerrero, WCW Chris Jericho, WCW Billy Kidman, WCW A couple Raw themes Paul Burchill, Maven/Tough Enough 1, Steve Blackman, Randy Orton, Voices, John Cena current, The Brian Kendrick, Drew McIntyre, FBI, Mark Henry (Three Six Mafia), Nathan Jones, Christian (Waterproof Blonde version) Evolution, Kid Kash, Cade & Murdoch, Tomko, Jamie Noble, Headshrinkers, Jeff Jarrett, Justin Hawk Bradshaw Powers of Pain Texas Tornado Too Much Waylon Mercy Legion of Doom Owen Hart (early 90s) Demolition The Rockers Vintage Royal Rumble

Originally posted by ScottyflamingoI've got several compilations, but the only two I've actively sought out are Golddust and Evil Doink.
I love the Goldust theme, and I think it is the longest running single theme in WWE history. I mean, it has never had an alternate version done, right? And Goldust never had any other theme I don't think. For a while, the Big Show theme was close in longevity, but they have messed around with it a few times.
Edited to mention that I never thought you guys would have so many themes. 72? 46? I thought 10 was a huge amount. I bow to you people.

TAFKAGoldust's music was like Goldlust but all nightmare scratchy, wasn't it? Or is TAFKAGoldust not Goldust (he's the TAFKAG)?
Would Jericho be the longest-running? Unless his Jerishow music counts as a break.
Well, let's see. I have several, most of them from the time when it became less Jim Johnston and more real bands (not that I have anything against Jim Johnston, the guy has made some nice themes).
Batista - Saliva - I Walk Alone
Christian - Just Close Your Eyes - Waterproof Blonde version and Story of the Year version
CM Punk - Killswitch Engage - This Fire Burns
Drew McIntyre - Shamans Harvest - Broken Dreams
Old Smackdown Theme - Divide the Day - Let It Roll
Wade Barrett - Rev Theory - End of Days
Randy Orton - Mercy Drive - Burn in my Light
Sheamus - Sean Jeness - Written in my Face
Cody Rhodes - TV/TV - Smoke and Mirrors (digital mirror version)
ECW - Saliva - Don't Question My Heart
Mark Henry - 3-6 Mafia - Somebody's Gonna Get It
MVP - Silkk The Shocker - I'm Coming
John Cena - Word Life
Nexus - 12 Stones - We Are One
Kane - Finger Eleven - Slow Chemical
Legacy - Adelitas Way - It's a New Day
Miz - Downstait - I Came to Play
Ziggler - Downstait - I am Perfection
If we can count music from the SvR series, I'd add Skillet's "Hero" and "Monster" and Not Forgotten's "Waiting" to the list.
The only wrestling specific theme I have is Kim Sozzi/Jim Johnston "You can look but you can't touch" for the Bella Twins b/c it's a great song on it's own. And like SPF, since the Shimmer wrestlers use mainstream music I have several of theirs.
Well, personally, I have seen probably three dozen people die in my line of work, and the thing that gets me, is most of them are ready. Personally, I feel I am going someplace better, so I am not afraid.
