During Drew McIntyre’s first run with WWE, when he was pushed far too hard, far too fast, he was using a theme song that was, in a word, incredible. It is undoubtedly one of the best theme songs any wrestler has used in quite a while.
“You never hear the shot that takes you down,” is an amazing line, by the way.
But then he grew up and got much bigger and better in pretty much every way imaginable and now we get to listen to him enter to this:
Which, okay, that’s not bad. But it’s no “Broken Dreams.”
Speaking of which, the Battleground Podcast asked him if it’s possible said theme could make a return and McIntyre had this to say (transcription via Wrestling Inc):
“Okay, one of these days that music is going to come back because 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. I’m going to have it for a show. I’m positive we still have the rights to it and I’m going to convince management to let me use it. And everybody in the crowd better know the words to that song because if I go out there and everybody is like, ‘what’s that?’ then I’m going to be let down. So, everybody start learning the lyrics because eventually I will get that song.”
I sincerely hope he’s a man of his word and manages to bring that old theme back.
