    I’m curious to see what picks people have for the best theme song in all of Pro wrestling. It can be currently used or something from the past, and it can be from any company that has ever existed.
    Personally as a puroesu fan myself I’ve always had a soft spot for Naomichi Marufuji’s theme and I’d put it up there just for how awesome it is. That being said “Kaze Ni Nare” is also a great pick for best theme. Lemme know what ya got.

    I don't know who Naomichi Marufuji is.

    For what it's worth, nothing tops The Brood's old intro from yesteryear.

    Am I the only one that thinks NXT themes for the last year or so have sounded really generic and poorly done?

    yes to The Brood

    obviously you have the iconic ones like Rock, Austin, HBK, DX.

    my all time favorite is still Taker's Ministry of Darkness theme...that was a bad ass and ominous song.




    Lets face it...Jim Johnston is a genius

    Black and Dream are good, (Worth noting Black wrote all the lyrics for his and I believe had an outside band do the music) Don't like Undisputed Era's at all. Sounds like something you get on Create a Character for the 2K games.

    Cass' new music? Brutal. Actually I think it's the poster boy for the recent themes that have been generic. But it is always fun during his entrance to see this.

    His theme was given within the last year, and last I checked, CFO$ (I believe Johnston's role is reduced if not gone completely) handles much of the music for both the main roster and NXT, so...

    The Brood had an unbelievable theme. The Rock's theme around 97-98 was also legendary with that guitar and drum instead of sounding so techno-like.

    The Brood takes it for me, though. HM to NWO Wolfpac.

    Fine. The themes in general have sucked over the last year.

    Fabulous Rougeaus.

    Other favourites: One of Rick Rude's various WCW themes (Simply Ravishing), Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Psycho Sid, Goldust, Hulk Hogan, Harlem Heat, Mr. Perfect, Macho Man's Pomp and Circumstance, Shinsuke Nakamura, Bobby Roode, HHH, Kurt Angle (I used to hate it but it grew on me), Hulk Hogan, Finn Balor, Ted Dibiase, Sandman (if that even counts).

    "With My Baby Tonight" is my favourite wrestling related song that isn't a theme song, closely followed of course by the famous collaboration between The Rock and Slick Rick - "Pie".

    I loved Steven Regal's theme in the late 90s



    Something manly about it, I can't put my finger on it

    A lot of good ones over the years. Off the top of my head:

    -Jericho's various WWE versions
    -Jericho's second WCW version (essentially "Evenflow")
    -Raven WCW (very much like "Come as you are")
    -The New Breed
    -Ric Flair
    -HHH
    -NWO Wolfpac only for the wolf howling at the beginning, otherwise it sucks
    -Rowdy Roddy Piper
    -Mr Perfect
    -Edge (not sure why, but I really like this one)
    -Fabulous Freebirds
    -Four Horsemen (again, not sure why)
    -Midnight Express (can't believe I almost forgot about them)
    -EDIT: Ernest the Cat Miller (lifted from James Brown)
    -EDIT: Alex Wright
    -EDIT: CM Punk (Living Colour)
    -EDIT: Bray Wyatt

    This is just way too difficult of a question.

    Hollywood Hogan coming out to voodoo child is iconic though and I don't think it was mentioned?
