If I were to be a face, I would be a kinda dorkish Kurt Angle/Rocky Maivia circa 1996 type of face. I would come to the ring smiling but once in the ring, I be a BADDASS! The music would represent as I would come to the ring with New Radicals "Get What You Give" and leave to Salivia's "CLick Click Boom!" Sorta like Mankind did before 1999.
However, if I were a heel (which I intend to be if I become a wrestler), I would be pure evil in a Hollywood Hogan/Triple H kind of way. I would come to the ring with my championship belt, Crips bandana, LWO shirt, and red baggy pants with THa Puerto Rican on the side to the tune of "Bulls ON Parade" by Rage Against THe Machine or "bawitchdaba" by Kid Rock.
dMp... excellent choice with the "Birth Ritual" I love that song. And I forget who mentioned it earlier... but the Hum song "Iron Clad Lou" is a great one as well... I used to see Hum all the time back when I lived in Champaign where they came from. Only band I've ever got to see go from my "local boys" to MTV back to, well, not much lately. As for my entry... grab the Tool CD Lateralus, go to the last couple seconds of track 6 and lead into "Parabola". I just think thats a bad-ass little intro to a nice riff.
"Are those two the gay ones you were talking about? I mean... look at those hideous pants.." - a female friend on seeing Kurt Angle and Chris Jericho on screen
L7 - "shitlist" or "fuel my fire" Limp Bizkit - "break stuff" i hate this song, but damn if it doesn't scream "hardcore garbage wrestler theme song" System of a Down - "Spiders" for your dark broody character Sepultura - "Procreation of the Wicked" Ministry - "Tonight We Murder" or "Jesus Built My Hotrod" just without the talking at the beginning (hell, they even have the song "New World Order". I'd love to see the nWo come out to that) Clutch - "Texan Book of the Dead" I bet you could get a mean "ooh-eee-ooh-ah-ah ting-tang walla-walla bing-bang" chant going. for a tag team Type O Negative - "We Hate Everyone"
Heel: Slipknot: "Surfacing" (I could see fans crapping themselves if they saw someone coming out to this.) Face: CKY: "96 Quite Bitter Beings" (If you saw the skit on Jackass with them driving shopping carts into curbs, this was the song. I think it was on CKY2K, too.)
Well, since everyone else is weighing in on this topic, it's time for my ¢¢.
Face - I could go old school/new school and bust out the Stevie Wonder tribute, "Higher Ground" by RHCP. Or the rap/rock love that is "Rock Superstar" by Cypress Hill. But Chris Jericho had it right (even though he was a heel at the time) with "Evenflow" by Pearl Jam, methinks.
Heel - Where do I begin? "Sweet Dreams" by Marilyn Manson just has a nice, eerie feel to it (plus a convenient pyro point.) As suggested earlier, "Jesus Christ Pose" by Soundgarden brings the hatred like little else. But the song I like the most is "Shout 2000" by Disturbed.
