Forgotten Great Wrestling Themes

So, we have listed the greatest wrestling theme songs.  That list isn’t changing.

However, there are some that slipped through the cracks that we now fondly remember:

– X-Factor – X-Pac’s faction stunk, but their Uncle Kracker-created theme is pretty sweet

–  NWO Wolfpac – the “good” NWO…it’s very confusing

– Maven (“Memory” by Mercy Drive) – the Tough Enough winner’s awesome theme

– Ken Shamrock – when you hear this song, you KNOW it’s “GO TIME”

– Owen Hart – it’s extremely dated now, but this was a pretty tight song for it’s time in the early 1990s, trust me

– Christian (Waterproof Blonde – Just Close Your  Eyes) – awesome, awesome, awesome song

– Kurt Angle

More Hulk Hogan!

Wow…I had no idea my original Hulk Hogan post would be so popular!

So without further ado, let’s take a look at some highlights from the Hulkster’s career!

– Defeating the Iron Sheik for his first WWF/WWE championship:

– A musical tribute to his Wrestlemania III match vs. Andre the Giant (the most famous match of all time, to that point–and maybe still to this day!):

– Classic Wrestlemania V promo before his match with Macho Man Randy Savage:

– Hogan/Ultimate Warrior vs. Mr. Perfect/The Genius on a Saturday Night’s Main Event:

– And following that set-up, here are clips of the Wrestlemania VI main event, between Hogan and the Warrior:

The Undertaker defeated Hogan at Survivor Series to win the championship.  That couldn’t stand, so a few days later, Hogan reclaimed his belt at This Tuesday in Texas:

That’s all for now…we’ll pick up where we left off sometime soon…keep checking back!

Hulk Hogan – Real American!

I realized that I haven’t really had a classic WWF/WWE posting in like a week, and that is WAY too long!

Short and sweet, our subject today is theme songs for this man right here:

First up, from the movie that really set the Hulkster on the path to mainstream superstardom, Rocky III, here is Survivor and “Eye of the Tiger:”

And how about the most recognizable wrestling theme song of all time?  It’s “Real American” by Rick Derringer:

I promise, you will have both of these stuck in your head for a long, long time.  Thank me later 🙂

And let’s wrap up our musical odyssey by checking in with…Jimi Hendrix?  That’s right!  When Hogan was a bad guy (NWO-era) and upon his return to WWE, he used Jimi’s “Voodoo Chile” as his entrance theme!  How ’bout some highlights?

And there ya have it.  Fight for the rights of every man.
