Regardless of the promotion, when a new talent makes their debut in pro wrestling, the presentation is a vital element to being able to resonate with an audience. When it comes to the presentation of a professional wrestling Superstar, perhaps one of the most important ingredients is the theme song that the wrestler enters the arena with every time they step into the squared circle.
Music producer, Mikey Rukus, spoke with AfterBuzz TV’s Jack Farmer to discuss how far in advance he learns of new names signing with All Elite Wrestling in order to take the time to craft the perfect themes.
The following quotes were passed along by Jack Farmer.
“Usually when it comes to talent that’s on the way, I don’t really even give a thought to rumors or anything like that," Rukus admitted. "When I get the call, I get the call. Sometimes I get the call, like, the day before. Um, I’ll give you an example. I think the longest, the longest time I’ve had to prepare for a talent coming in was Jake Roberts and that was maybe, er, no, Jake Roberts was two days. Jeff Cobb was about a week, and we ended up needing it earlier than we thought we were going to need it."
