Sami Zayn Tells The Story Behind His Entrance Music

WWE Superstar Sami Zayn recently did a piece for Team Rock to tell the story of how he got his entrance music today, that included Triple H, Neville, and late-great Hall Of Famer Dusty Rhodes. You can see what Zayn wrote here:

"[WWE Superstar] Neville and I are big fans of ska. He's actually more into original, Jamaican, skinhead, two-tone ska from England, but I'm more into punk ska Operation Ivy and stuff Rancid would do. And while we were in developmental at the Performance Centre, we'd have promo class every week with Dusty [Rhodes, WWE Hall Of Famer].

"Neville and I pitched this idea and we played with it for months and months, encouraged by Dusty where we dressed in two-tone suits to do these ska characters. I think someone eventually showed this to [WWE Executive Vice President] Triple H and I had this generic stock music. At this point, NXT was starting to become a pretty big deal, so it wasn't just stock music being picked any more, WWE were investing time and making music for these guys. Triple H caught wind of this ska thing I was doing with Neville and said 'Well, if this is more him than the music he's got now, let's do something in this vain'.

"He sent me this song and I didn't like it at first. The horns sounded kind of synthetic at first and I didn't like that, then they fixed it and added the 'Whoa-oh-oh' at the beginning. That was the only input I had."
