I was watching the Finals tonight, and midway through the fourth quarter I could have *SWORN* I heard the opening fanfare for John Cena's entrance music on the arena's PA system during a Spurs rally. Did anyone else catch that?

And will this pave the way for Fozzy in next year's Super Bowl Halftime show?

I watched it at a bar so I really couldn't hear.

But in one of the other finals games the Pistons came out to Undertaker's theme music

I know that I saw Rasheed Wallace with the World Heavyweight title over his shoulder in a press conference after game six of the NBA Finals. I saw it on ESPN I think.

YES, now I know I'm not crazy. They definitely played the beginning of his theme song.

I'm also fairly certain that they were playing "Bad, Bad Man" going into one of the commercial breaks late in the second half. For what it's worth, I guess SOMEBODY is really into Cena's CD.

Yeah, Rasheed carries that belt everywhere, looked kind of stupid with it after game two when they had gotten spanked two straight games and looked like they were headed for a sweep.

And yeah the Pistons came out to the Undertaker's music but they were the away team so I don't think it was their choice. I imagine the Spurs picked that song so they would have a somber entrance, perhaps they even purposely used a wrestler theme song knowing that the Pistons would get the reference since they seem to be wrestling fans. I thought it was pretty funny. HBK often goes to Spurs playoff games, would've been funny to see his reaction to the Undertaker theme song.

I wouldn't think Rasheed carrying the belt would have any impact on the music they play in San Antonio, though. Unless they were trying to take his mind out of the game for a second.

Isn't there a football player that likes to brandish the World Heavyweight title as well? I can't remember who that is.

I think Clinton Portis did at one time.

Yup. Believe it was during a Sunday night game on Espin, the TV Station when Portis grabbed a belt, given to him by Pastor Troy (I think that's who it was), and jumped into the crowd. Think it was a five TD game. Either that or going over 200 yards.

Yeah, it was because ESPN had an ad for their magazine where a cheerleader was trying to prove she was smart, and part of it was reading the magazine. But she kept pronouncing it like a word, as opposed to an acronym, so she kept saying "Espin the Magazine".

Rasheed bought them for the entire team last year.

Here's the old thread:

I remember seeing an entire team photo last year which was great.

Well, did Rasheed present Duncan with his belt after the Spurs won?

I believe WCCW was syndicted just about nationwide, at least from Georgia to Califonia. The thing I would LOVE to see is just a two or three hour DVD on the Freebirds vs Von Erichs.
