WWE: 25 Greatest Entrance Theme Songs of All Time

16 of 26


One of the great things that came out of Triple H’s friendship with the late great Lemmy Kilmister was the abundance of Motorhead recordings that found their way into WWE. Two theme songs just for Triple H, plus another track that was the theme for Unforgiven 2008.

But possibly the best of the bunch is Evolution’s theme, “Line In The Sand.” When Triple H joined forces with Ric Flair, Batista, and Randy Orton, the quartet represented pro wrestling “evolution.” Flair was the past, Triple H the present, and Batista and Orton the future. The Four Horsemen-esque group dominated WWE for two years, winning championships with regularity.

The soundtrack to their successes came from Motorhead. With Lemmy’s rasping voice calling out their arrival, Evolution was a force like no other during their heyday.

Ironically, the theme’s lyrics could be viewed as coming from Triple H’s point of view. If we do that, it foreshadows his role in the dissolution of the group. “I see the line in the sand/Time to find out who I am/Looking back to see where I stand” seems to say that Triple H was trying to find his place between the past and the future without losing it. Right as Batista and Orton started to come into their own, the group was no more. Interesting, if you ask me.
