WWE Raw superstar Aleister Black lost his theme song. Maybe it’s because he is “truly evil” now.
It’s been a tough month for wrestling fans who love awesome theme songs. First, Keith Lee lost his self-rapped “Bask In His Glory” theme upon being called up from NXT to WWE Raw. And now, Aleister Black has lost his awesome theme song by Incendiary. His theme when entering the ring on the Sept. 28 episode of Raw for a match against Kevin Owens was decidedly not “Root Of All Evil”
The loss in theme songs is out of WWE’s hands, since it is an issue with losing money on song royalties if they continue to use CFO$ songs after parting ways with them.
Still, the loss is felt by the fans. “No man is ever truly good, no man is ever truly evil” was an incredible chorus, and Aleister Black’s theme was just legendary in NXT. It got fans pumped up for his matches as NXT Champion.
We didn’t get to see his entrance, which was one of WWE’s best during his time in the Black and Gold brand, often enough, and there are other aspects of Black’s presentation on the main roster that have been frustrating. Fans heard one week that he was seen as a future top star, but there have been mixed messages since.
Aleister Black’s theme change on WWE Raw hurts, but it’s not the end of the world
But Black recently turned heel and is feuding with Kevin Owens, who is one of the top stars on WWE Raw. That seems to indicate his fortunes are turning for the better.
As with Keith Lee, we can’t get too caught up in Aleister Black’s theme song. Yeah, it stinks that he lost a metal theme that fit him perfectly and was one of the best themes in WWE, but he’ll be fine. There are more important things, as Lee’s recent performances since his debut can attest.
And with Black, on the plus side, his theme still fits him and isn’t terrible. It will take some getting used to, but maybe it will grow on us like Bayley’s new heel theme has.
