WWE.com: The 50 Greatest WWE Entrance Themes Ever

#36. Christian — “At Last”

Christian learned early that he would need to make a big statement if he ever hoped to step out of the shadow of Edge. After cutting ties with his longtime friend in 2001, he introduced an entrance theme to define him as a singular Superstar. To hammer home the point, the Canadian competitor employed a choir in his signature song to proclaim, “At last, you’re on your own!”

The tune shifts suddenly to heavy metal riffs, reminding the WWE Universe to take Christian seriously. Yet, the song leaves a haunting final impression when a maniacal opera singer screams, “Il mondo è mio!” — an Italian credo that translates to “The world is mine!” and fit Christian perfectly. — MATTHEW ARTUS


#9. The Brood — “Blood”

With their affinity for pirate shirts and a stylized entrance that saw the trio rise up through a ring of fire as if they’d just taken an elevator from hell, Edge, Christian and Gangrel brought a gothic cool to WWE at a time when Hot Topic stores still seemed kinda dangerous. But it was the trio’s theme — with its lurching church organ and moaning wah-wah guitars — that pulled the whole thing together. Stalking to the ring in time with the music, the creeping Brood in red-stained clothing nearly convinced audiences that “Blood” was the last thing they’d ever hear. — RYAN MURPHY






Charismatic Chronicles – A New Genesis – November 13th 2005


On this day, ten years ago, the world unfortunately lost the one and only ‘Latino Heat’ Eddie Guerrero. The very same day, Total Non-Stop Action wrestling held a pay-per-view event, which was dedicated to his memory, Genesis. In the weeks prior to the pay-per-view, a huge name was being teased to be making what was called the biggest jump in the history of TNA Wrestling. In a event that was ranked as the fifth greatest moment TNA’s history, it was revealed to be Christian, who had reverted back to using his original ring name Christian Cage, he was greeted by Scott D’Amore and Robert Roode who had invited him to join Team Canada and later in the night Christian Cage showed exactly who he was sided with, by putting the then NWA World Heavyweight Champion, Jeff Jarrett through a table, with help by Team 3D.

This is the very speech he made on that night, in 2005:

“So, I can guess you can imagine the question that I got asked the most this week… are the rumours that we’ve been hearing true? Is it true that you’re going to TNA? And if so, why?

Well, I’ll tell you this much… I didn’t come here to see the same guy, come out and say the same damn thing week after week after week…. And I didn’t come here to see a grown man dressed up like a doctor, pulling things out of another man’s ass. And you can be damn sure, I didn’t come here because I got fired.

Which brings me to another rumour that I wanna address and put to bed right now, the rumour that I got low-balled in a contract offer. Well, that’s not true at all, actually, I was offered a very hefty sum to stay exactly where I was. But the reason that I came to TNA, is the same reason that each and every one of you is in this arena right now. The same reason that everybody’s watching Genesis, live on pay-per-view… and that reason is that I love wrestling.

Now you know, I’ve been known to crack a joke or two, say something sarcastic, pull a rib… but I don’t want anybody to ever forget, the fact that I am without a doubt the greatest all around performer, in this sport today. It’s like this, I’m tired of egos and politics, I wanna see guys in this ring, busting their asses, I wanna see wrestling reinvented, like last night, I turn on Spike TV, I’m watching Impact and it reminded me of when I broke into the national wrestling scene eight years ago. There was two companies, one was old, stale and lacking direction. The other one, I was a part of, it was young, hungry and cutting edge. Fast forward eight years to this very moment and there’s still two companies, one is old, boring and lacking direction… and the other one is TNA!

And I said this is something that I wanna be a part of, in fact, I wanna be the biggest piece of this puzzle. Which brings me to Jeff Jarrett. I’ve got two things to say to you… one, you should never wear white pants after labor day. And two, I’ve come to TNA to take the one thing that’s alluded me, my entire career, the one thing we both can agree on, is the most important and prized possession in this sport, the NWA World Heavyweight Championship. So I want everybody right now to stand up and take notice, that Christian Cage is here and Christian Cage will fulfil his destiny, because that’s… how I roll!”
