Speaking on AEW Unrestricted, Cole discussed how his theme came together.

"Talking to Mikey Rukus was such a fun process because I explained to him my vision of where I wanted the song to go, I said I wanted a Rage Against the Machine vibe and 'Something For You' (by David Rolfe) was a song I came out to in Ring of Honor and I loved the drum and bass, so I wanted something involving that, also. He just, literally, meshed the two together so perfectly. It was incredible how well he did and how much he nailed it on the first go. It was wild," he said.

Cole used his Undisputed ERA theme in NXT as part of his overall presentation, getting on the apron and pointing to himself and saying "BOOM!" to coincide with the "BOOM!" in the theme. In AEW, Cole kept them "BOOM!" as part of his entrance and in the theme, but the timing of the two were off at the beginning.

"As far as the timing of the 'Boom,' funny enough, Rukus had that ready to go for a while. Anyone who is like, 'The timing of the Boom is off,' that's on me. I wasn't sure if I wanted to have a timing for the song to have to hit the Boom. After a couple of weeks and I saw how many people wanted that to exist in the song, I finally told Rukus, 'Hey man, alright, let's put that in there.' The timing of the Boom is on me because I was thinking, 'Maybe I'll do it at any point' because depending on the size of the ramp or the speed in which you get into the match or the time on television, I'm like, 'Do I have to go every time my entrance hits one minute, 30 seconds,' but when I saw how important it was to everybody, I said, 'Alright, we have to put it in there,' but Rukus had it ready to go from the gate," he said.

Cole has now got the timing down and continues to impress in the AEW ring, posting an undefeated record thus far. You can view the making of Cole's theme by clicking here.
