WWE composer Jim Johnston's 10 favorite entrance themes

Randy Orton

“When I write the songs, I feel like I’m writing for the Superstar as opposed to other songwriters who compose somewhat autobiographically,” Johnston explained. “But most of the time, I’ll realize six months later that a song was completely autobiographical.”

For Johnston, this was especially true when his frustrations with the world were manifested while composing Randy Orton’s theme. The song, which was recorded by rock band Rev Theory, opens with the lyrics: “I hear voices in my head/They counsel me/They understand/They talk to me.”

“I look back on that song now, and those words were exactly what I was thinking at the time,” Johnston recalled. “I had never verbalized that anger and it was the voices in my head that were playing out this anger inside me.”
