My Top Ten Favorite Wrestling Theme Songs

Growing up in the 80s, one of the many things that I loved was pro wrestling.  Being from the south, I enjoyed the southern style 'raslin.  Georgia Championship and Florida Championship were always fun to watch when they were on air.

By the mid-80s, the Jim Crockett Promotions NWA was my favorite outlet, but via Saturday Night's Main Event and eventually renting VHS tapes of the WWF PPVs, my brother and I became more familiar with WWF, now the WWE.

Wrestling theme songs have not always been important, but since the late 80s, theme songs or entrance music has been a very important part of the personas created in the squared circle.

I have compiled a top ten list of my favorite wrestling theme songs.

 1.  Ric Flair - "Also sprach Zarathustra" by Richard Strauss from 2001: A Space Odyssey
 2.  nWo - nWo Theme Song
 3.  ''Funkasaurus'' Brodus Clay - "Somebody Call My Mama"
 4.  Eddie Guerrero - "We Lie, We Cheat, We Steal"
 5.  CM Punk - "Cult of Personality" by Living Colour
 6.  The Rock - "If You Smell" Rock Theme Song
 7.  Shawn Michaels - “Sexy Boy” by Shawn Michaels
 8.  Jon Cena - "My Time is Now" by Jon Cena
 9.  “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan - “Voodoo Child” by Jimi Hendrix
10.  Road Warriors - "We are Ironman" cover of Black Sabbath song
