    I am sure something like this has been done before- but what are you thoughts?

    I am ardently of the opinion that Slick’s ‘Jive Soul Bro’ is the best entrance music of all time

    Leaving off licensed music like 'Enter Sandman', 'Natural Born Killer' and 'Cult of Personality'...

    US Express/Hulk Hogan - Real American
    Harlem Heat/Booker T - Rap Sheet
    Vince McMahon - No Chance In Hell
    Stone Cold - Glass Shatters
    Ultimate Warrior - Unstable

    Shout out to the Rock's 2003 No Way Out theme and specifically that version.

    I forgot how good the Slick theme was, that certainly belongs in the conversation. I'd throw Jake Roberts' theme in there as well.

    In a rare instance, I actually prefer the WWE's instrumental remix of Demolition than the original version. It's a heavier song and doesn't have those cheesy vocals.

    It's a basic pick, but no other song popped the crowd more than Austin's. To this day, whenever I hear the glass shatter I'm keeping an eye out for the Texas Rattlesnake.

    By and large the WWF had the more iconic songs. However, WCW didn't care about copyright and would lift Pearl Jam, Nirvana and other popular artists tracks. It served as a nice contrast and made WCW feel more a part of pop culture.

    They also got clever with their public domain songs. When they gave Rey Mysterio Jr Loch Ness' old theme, it instantly made him stand out. He had this song that sounded like something Andre The Giant would come out to. So even though he looked all of 14, the music told you there was more than meets the eye.

    My favourite was always Triple H's "Time To Play The Game"; I know it's licencesed, but I love that theme.

    Currently, I love Kenny Omega's theme in AEW.

    I'd count HHH's theme as an original since Jim Johnson actually wrote the song.

    It's a different circumstance to say Voodoo Child which predated Hollywood Hogan by decades. It's obviously a great song, but it transcends wrestling.

    Cool - I thought Triple H's theme was written by Lemmy, but it's good to know it's an original.

    I'll add my thoughts to this old thread...

    Triple H - My Time (always preferred this version over any others)
    Stone Cold Steve Austin - THAT glass shatter
    Horsemen circa 98ish
    Ric Flair
    nWo - Hogan - Wolfpac (I loved all three)
    D-X
    Kane original theme (stuff of nightmares!)
    Goldberg

    More recently...

    Bobby Roode - GLORIOUS
    Edge (I just love his theme, it fits him so well)
    Rusev - It's chilling, it's a shame they wasted Rusev, he could have been anything :(
    I HEAR VOICES IN MY HEAD....you know.
