WWE: 25 Greatest Entrance Theme Songs of All Time

24 of 26

AJ Styles

On January 24, 2016, AJ Styles shocked the wrestling world by coming out as the third entrant in the Royal Rumble. Shoddy camera work aside, the ovation he got was one of the loudest of night. Personally, I think at least part of that is due to the fact that the crowd was caught off guard by a great theme with no idea who it belonged to.

It’s really quite amazing, how many good to great themes CFO$ have cranked out over the past few years. Most are in the solidly acceptable range, but there are a bunch that are truly a cut above. Naomi, Styles, and the final two in the countdown are the cream of the crop of CFO$’s output.

What I really like about “Phenomenal” for Styles is the departure from the majority of his pre-WWE themes, yet it still seems to be the perfect musical accompaniment for him. In New Japan, Styles – as a part of the Bullet Club – came out to hard rock. When he was in TNA, Styles used a mix of country and rock (among numerous others).

But his WWE theme is southern rap. At first glance, you wouldn’t think that would be something that would work. I know they say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but Styles and rap seem to be about as much a match as lamb and tuna fish.

It works, though. Knowing that Styles is one of the best wrestlers on the planet, the refrain of, “They don’t want none” is one of the most apt lyrics in wrestling.
