First impressions for WWE Superstars can be helped or hurt by their entrance music. Here are the 25 greatest themes that accompanied wrestlers to the ring.

As far back as the 1950s, professional wrestlers have been using music to accompany their entrance into the arena. Gorgeous George famously walked out to “Pomp and Circumstance” as his valet laid out a red carpet and rose petals. By the Rock n Wrestling era, just about every competitor had their very own theme song.

Today, a great entrance theme can be a huge asset in the sports entertainment world. A solid but unspectacular performer can get a tremendous boost with a catchy theme. And the true greats can reach legendary status if their music is good enough.

On the flip side of this, a bad theme song can be an insurmountable hurdle for a wrestler to overcome. If the fans hate the sounds that bring you to the ring, it’s going to be hard to make a good connection with them. The first impressions from the music can make or break a character – or a career.

In WWE, there have been a number of truly great themes. From Jimmy Hart’s compositions in the 1980s and early 90s, to Jim Johnston through the Attitude Era and beyond, to today with CFO$, entrance music in WWE has evolved with the times.
