Did anybody else catch this this morning on Good Morning America? They end their opening montage, come out to Charles (the Disney brass forbid you to call him "Charlie") Gibson in shirt, tie and forest camoflague Gortex jacket, standing in front of a bunch of U.S. troops (in desert camo) at a Kuwaiti base.

The music under all of this: Regal/Storm's entrance music! Sadly, none of the troops were sneering, carring world tag team championship belts, or the Canadian/British flags. Go figure.

One of the coolest wrestling/TV news cross-music moments since I heard some generic stuff our promotions dept. has in a Jesse Ventura vignette prior to SummerSlam 1999.

On Sportsnet in Canada, they use John Cena's music all the time for basketball highlights.

I think SportsCenter has used WCW jobber music before.

I remember ESPN using Jericho's WCW face music specifically, and I also think a version of the Hardy Boyz music as well.

It could have been worse, though.

Yeah, ESPN used the Jericho theme for Baseball Tonight at one point. The Hardys theme is all over the place, Trimark DVD uses it for their promos for upcoming releases (or at least they used to). Anyone can use that stuff if they pay a fee.

The irony is that before it was the Regal/Storm muzak, it was the theme for the Un-Americans!



Ever since The Rock came into town
Everyone's tried to bring him down
Canadians have no class
That's why they can kiss The People's Ass.


The Rock is bigger than Tom Cruise and Tom Hanks
But yet he's got to deal with these Long Island skanks!
He'll whip Austin's ass you know
And that's the bottom line cause the Rock sa-i-d so!

I remember seeing Booker T's music on an episode of Kids In The Hall once, and Crash Holly's music was in the recent Beavis & Butthead DVD commercials.

Yes, I remember the ep of KitH with the Booker/Harlem heat music. Something about fire, IIRC.

And, once again, just so you can't forget them:

ESPN used T&A's theme for a triathlon.

When I'm traveling between CT and NJ on Friday evenings, I pick up some college radio station where some kid loves playing WWF: The Music Volume 4 while he talks between songs. My favorite time was flipping around and catching him come back from break with the Undertaker's ministry theme. And the first time I heard him doing it, when he had Jericho's theme in the background, and he talked so long, it ended and went into Big Show's theme, which is what tipped me off to his act.



I apologize for being a Buffy/Angel mark.

Sounds like me when I'm hosting karaoke. My indy fed friends, and certain other people who rate highly with yours truly, get entrance music played off the WWE Anthology set when they come up to the stage.

Sadly, they always get mad at me when I play them Hurricane's theme. Whassupwidat!?

Heh... back when I was on our station, I used some entrance themes as music beds. Especially Gangrel's theme (which you have to admit is just so PERFECT). Then, whilst running for production head, I made a promo for my show using the Rock's theme. It wasn't worth the effort, though, to get Dwayne to ask "Do you smell what the *d*ock is cooking?"

A couple of years back, on Global TV up here in Canada, they did a preview of one of the NHL Leafs-Senators playoffs series...to Mick Foley's car crash music of all things!

I've also been to a couple minor league baseball games where they played Steve Austin's and Undertaker's themes (both from WWF The Music: Vol. 3) just before the opening pitch. Odd.

I could be wrong, but I think Robbie Alomar or Dave Justice used the Wolfpack theme song a few times when they were with the Indians.

Speaking of which, I'm waiting for Milton Bradley to step up to the plate with Triple H's song. MILTON BRADLEY. THE GAME.

My cousin, who used to pitch in the minors for the Mobile Bay Bears and Rancho Cucamonga Quakes used Stone Cold's entrance music with the glass crashing when he would come out of the bullpen to close out a game. He even used at his wedding reception when they introduced the wedding party.

I suddenly don't feel so bad knowing I'm not the only person who's had that idea. Still, I don't think I'll get my girlfriend to go for it...

And does anyone remember hearing Steve Blackman's theme used to promote a (Lennox Lewis?) fight some time ago?
