I have a handful of wrestling themes as shortcuts on my desktop. In no particular order:

* Sanshiro Takagi - DDT. The Sanshiro 3:46 remix of Scooter's "Fire"; a real adrenaline rush, and the crowd eats it up.

* Toshiaki Kawada - AJPW. The remixed version of "Holy War" is just AWESOME. (Most of the AJPW themes rock -- nobody does cock-rock guitar solos like the Japanese thememeisters.)

* Magnum Tokyo - Toryumon. TOKYOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Any theme and entrance that has women stuffing actual money in a wrestler's pants HAS to be on the list.

* Kaientai DX - MPro. Not the more familiar Abnormal Paradise song, but the OLD theme -- Heros Del Silenco (Entre Dos Tierras). Sounds like something straight out of From Dusk Til Dawn; just beautiful.

* Super Delfin - NJPW. His dirge-like MPro theme is good, but his guitar-maniac NJPW theme with the evil laugh at the start just ROCKS.

WWF? Taka used "Yamato Suite #4" (his old MPro theme) for a while, so I'll go with that. Evil Doink. "We're Not The Mounties," of COURSE.

I don't know what it is about "We're Not the Mounties," but it seems to be universally known and loved. Every time this topic is started several people mention it. I like it too, but what gives it such staying power?

I wish I knew what you were talking about on the Japanese stuff. I've always wanted to watch some Japanese wrestling, but have never had the opportunity.

Allied Powers theme music was a pretty good mix of the British Bulldog and Lex Luger

The Mountie's original song was pretty goofy. "We're Not The Mounties" set new records in goofiness. Never let it be said that wrestling fans can't appreciate high camp.

As for Japan... it's not a matter of opportunity, it's a matter of writing a check or two and picking up some tapes. Trust me, it's worth it. Try getting a Phil Schneider comp or two from the Death Valley Driver page -- #4 is an excellent place to start if you're generally unfamiliar with the Japanese style.

SOK (hailing from Calgary, AB), quietly says:Best theme songs: Great question. There are so many that come to mine.

My personal favorites go as follows. Some that I like aren't listed because they've been used a few times. Read: HHH, etc, etc.

Billy Gunn's ASS MAN. I use that as my theme music on my Smackdown game for my PSone. I love this one because it's an attitude song.

Mind you, Billy Gunn also scored with the I GOT IT ALL song, too.

DX: Classic. 'Nuff Said. Run DMC (not our DMC) made a fantastic version of it.

Gangrel's theme was repetitive, but his entrance was amazing. Remember the "new brood" with Gangrel and the hardyz? They had different music then, and it was really, really good.

The Model Ric Martel: Great theme music. Got the heat going, for sure!

Waylon Mercy: When I first heard his theme music, I felt uneasy. I loved the character, though!

The current ROCK theme. No "the rock says" every few seconds makes me a happy man.

Ric Flair's theme. Immortal.

Stand back! There's a hurricaine coming through! Yay! That reminds me of superhero music from video games back when...and I really like it. I hope the rumours of the Hurricane gimmick dying are false.

Slick's JIVE SOUL BRO was good...

I really like Crash Holly's theme, too. Good guitar there.

Anyhow, that's a wrap.

EDIT: Added a couple.

Heh... yeah, I used to use it as background music on my radio show. It worked perfect... instrumental, fine to talk over, etc.

It seems that Jacque Rougeau has always had a funky theme tune, We're all American boys was a classic.
We don't like heavy metal, we don't rock 'n' roll, the only thing es listen to is Barry Manelow.
Honky Tonk's deserves a mention as does Dave Sullivan's when was a hulkamaniac, I think the actual title was I wanna be a hulkamaniac.
WCW has had some good ones like the Nastie's and Booker's, Jericho's WCW theme was pretty nifty.

Tony Schiavone:"But that's on the outside of the ring Jesse".
Jesse Ventura:"So what?, what are you going to tell me Schiavone, you can shoot somebody outside of the ring, as long as it's outside the ring?, you are even dumber than Monsoon, I thought Gorilla was the stupidest man alive!."

Watching old tapes, I forgot how much I loved Edge and Christian's theme. That ruled.

Hmmm....

Whaddidyasay?

That and "Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck" by Grimspoon always got me pumped. Booker T's, just for longevity's sake. I'm glad that's one entrance WWE did not take away from an incoming WCW wrestler.

And no-one's a fan of "Gettin' Rowdy"? Damn. ;P

Im a huge mark for Booker T's theme and intro. I am probably one of the only people who would say Steven Richards with the old Kronic theme(which is Static X)

The best themes ever would probably have to be Real American, the 2001 theme for Flair, Austin's Disturbed theme, Jeff Jarrett's cheesy country theme with JJ in pyro letters entrance circa 1998, and D'Lo Brown awesome "YOU LOOKIN AT THE REAL DEAL NOW, WHATCHA WAN???"

And as you may have heard I am recently a crowned class B dungeon-master. So if any of you would like to play D&D today, please speak now or forever hold your peace.
[He chuckles, and there is an awkward silence at the table.]
Caped Boy: Anyone? Alexa!
[Alexa gives him a withering glare.]
Caped Boy: Maybe you would like to join in? We do need a druid, and you have definitely cast a level 5 charm spell on me.
Alexa: In your dreams, douche-bag!
Caped Boy: Douche-bags are hygienic products, I take that as a compliment. Thank you.

Alexa: Ewww!

Cannot believe no-one has mentioned Cactus Jack's WWF theme yet. Just freakin'awesome-it became associated with a certain type of match to follow whenever you heard it. I'll second the vote for the Corporate Ministry musak too; the mix of No Chance In Hell and the Ministry guitar riff was BOSS. And back in the day (ie. when they were still over) you couldn't get a better entrance as a whole than the New Age Outlaws. And, as ever, the Evil Doink theme was the stuff of Jeunetesque nightmare material.

It's been said already, but I agree with Gangrel having awesome entrance music.

But am I the only one who thinks that The Big Show's theme is histerical? What gets me is when that drunk country singer says "Weeeeeeellllllll, well, it's The Big Show!" the words "The Big Show" collide on the titan-tron.

That cracks me up.

As we know, the theme must fit the person, and saying that, Jake the Snake Roberts had what I consider the ULTIMATE theme music. it was spooky, yet easy on the ears. When that music hit, you knew what to expect....which was the unexpected. Knowing what's in the bag helped as well. On top of that, it was UBER cool when face Jake started doing the 'twitch' whenever he was going into the ring with a heated rvial (like Dibiease). Plus at the end of the match when he won, the music fit just because of what he did after the amtch to his opponent.

on closing; Jake's music ruled.
