For those who haven't had the chance to look it up yet; there's extra Christian Cage for those who are interested: the Impact taping preview is all Cage; and they've updated the roster page (tnawrestling.com) to see that his music is listed.

It's AWESOME, by the way. Christian always had great theme music, even in the WWE.

Oh, and his bio's up as well. (tnawrestling.com)

I recognized that tune instantly. It's a knockoff of "My Last Breath" by Evanescence.

It's good to see that the WWE isn't backing away from Batista or Cena. There's still some questions lingering over a few of the draft moves they either made or didn't make (Jericho being a prime example), but the stage is set for a solid run to Summerslam that may send the indicator down. The longer Triple H stays away is also a plus...

a very good one at that. it also is a similar style to his Waterproof Blonde theme, so it's pretty fitting.

The lettering and logo on his Captain Charisma jacket on Sunday looked kinda cheap. heh. hopefully it was only because it was a rush job.

Wow..that's a great rip off of the Evanescence song indeed.
Almost to the point that it might be ripping off the original. (Kinda like DDP's and Jericho's WCW themes)

Don't leave out Raven's "Come as You Are" knockoff...

Catchy song for CC, but still sounds a bit midi-ish. Can't they just hire Jimmy Hart already?

Wow, now all they need to do is devise a nice entrance video for him, work up a lighting routine, and it'll be a heck of an entrance. Particularly by TNA standards-- right now, the only theme music I even recognize when it first starts up is Jeff Jarrett's, and that's probably thanks to its discordant quality more than anything else.

Yeah, seriously...I think Jarret's music makes everyone hate him more with that awful whining noise in the begining. I really don't like it.

Christian's music is good even though its an Evanescnce rip off with the Jericho countdown on the TNAtron. It needs some lyrics though.

I don't like the Dudley's rip off them either. It sounds like its trying too hard.

I saw a clip of his debut from the PPV. It's Jericho's entrance, from the countdown, to the name popping up on the screen behind a cityscape, to the backlighting, to his having his back turned to the crowd, and everything. That said, it's pretty cool. I also like how the opening riff is essentially the "Attitude" music bumper that would open up the shows prior to "The Power Is Back".

Couldn't TNA have just used Christian's WWE entrance music? I mean, it wasn't written by Jim Johnson or anything ... or does WWE sign "exclusivity" deals with outside musical groups when they use their songs as theme music? If not, couldn't TNA have just paid Waterproof Blonde for the rights to the song and use it?

Behold the "Wise" Words of Renegade Raine, the Bishounen Hunter:


Wow...most of the time I can barely hear the themes on TV, but I guess that's a good thing. I know I heard at least four themes that were obviously influenced by another song. And all of the songs that weren't copycats were just...awful. Sonny Siaski's is especially bad.

They REALLY need to hire someone else to take care of the themes, because the ones now remind me of the songs one of my online friends would make with his cheap software and then send them to me for my opinion. But since he was a friend, I had to lie.

Ha! Seems like everyone has one of those lately.

A lot of the themes sound like someone just whipped them up using Apple's Garageband software. Couldn't an organization with TNA's resources get a few unsigned acts to contribute theme music? They could also, as someone pointed out, bring in Jimmy Hart...or anyone else for that matter.

I think that it'd help the company out in the long run. They're already fighting off the perception that they're the poor man's WWE, and it certainly doesn't help when wrestlers are coming out to themes like the one they use for Christopher Daniels.

The only theme I don't mind (and actually kind of like) is the one for Abyss.

This is one of TNA's biggest weaknesses, in my opinion. They bill themselves as a serious competitor to the WWE, but they either don't have or just don't spend enough money on production elements to look like it. Everything they do from theme music to ring attire looks like a cheap knock-off. They either need to spend more money (which, given what I've heard about how TNA goes through money in the first place, is probably not in the cards), or they need to find a way to change their look so that it seems more professional without costing more. I'm not advocating something like an ECW-style lo-fi production, because that's clearly not the direction TNA's going in, but some kind of change so that they don't look so cheap.

While we're on the topic of entrance themes, what was Vince Russo's TNA entrance music? I remember "Not Iron Man" from the WCW days.

Does anyone know how Christian can use "Captain Charisma" in TNA? This was definitely created while he was in WWE, so can't they lay claim to the name as intellectual property? Even if they didn't copyright it, couldn't they sue on the grounds that it was their creation which they promoted (yeah, promoted, right) and established?

They might have some claim in court, but if Jay Reso owns the copyright, possession is 9/10 of the law.

Wasn't there an Indy wrestler who claimed to have used that name in his wrestling career? That's why they stopped using it for a bit.

The rock Canadian Anthem is actually pretty sweet.

And the "HAIL SABAN!" drums,drums,drums,guitar "HAIL SABAN!" is oddly infectious.

I kinda dig Samoa Joe's theme. Mean and evil and all.
