Drew McIntyre wants to convince WWE to bring back his old theme song.
When a WWE theme song clicks with an audience, it immediately becomes a part of the audience’s connection to the performer and the character they portray.
Over the years, iconic theme songs written by the likes of Jimmy Hart, Jim Johnston, and others have become embedded into the mind of wrestling fans and there is an immediate sense of hype and nostalgia associated in the mind of longtime fans when a familiar theme song begins to play in an arena as they remember who is coming through the curtain.
When Drew McIntyre first joined WWE, he was dubbed the “Chosen One.” Shortly after his debut, Drew McIntyre began walking out to a song called Broken Dreams by Shaman's Harvest. The hard rock song is often associated with the early days of Drew McIntyre when he carried the aura of an inevitable WrestleMania main eventer despite a short length of time in the industry.
Eventually, Drew McIntyre would join 3MB and no longer use the theme song and by the time he came back to WWE, new theme songs for all seemed to be the mandate and the former Intercontinental Champion resurfaced in NXT with new music.
Recently, during an appearance on the Battleground podcast, Drew McIntyre promised that he would one day get his old theme song back while needling his old friend, Sheamus, that his original theme song would never return.
"I don't see anyone asking for 'Lobster Head', everyone's asking about Broken Freakin Dreams. One of these days, that music is going to come back. I hear this question all the time, I see it every day on social media. One of these days I'm going to get it approved, have it for a show. I'm positive we still have the rights to it. Everybody in the crowd better know the words to that song, because I go out there and people are like 'what's that?' I'm going to be let down. Everyone start learning the lyrics because eventually I will get that song and I'll ensure Sheamus will never have 'Lobster Head' as his theme song again"
"Lobster Head," refers to Sheamus’ original WWE theme song, “Written in My Face.” Although he has not used that song in over five years, many fans still like to poke fun at misheard lyrics for the "Celtic Warrior's" old entrance theme.
Jeff Hardy is another name who wants his old theme song, No More Words, to return. Learn more here.
