- WWE announced the following on the NHL's Washington Capitals adopting WWE NXT Superstar Oney Lorcan's theme song as their goal song:
Washington Capitals use Oney Lorcan's entrance theme as its official goal song
When Oney Lorcan's entrance theme "Combative" blares throughout arenas, NXT fans know it can only mean one thing: that a hard-hitting, smash-mouth brawl is about to break out.
Yet, for followers of the NHL's Washington Capitals, the tune has taken on a new significance: as a cause of celebration.
That's because the Caps have adopted the anthemic tune, a CFO$ original, as their official goal song of the 2017-2018 hockey season. So, the next time Alex Ovechkin or Evgeny Kuznetsov puts the puck inside the net, keep an ear out for the familiar fight song and throw a finger in the air like Lorcan, because, well, Oney Rules.
"Combative" is available for download now on iTunes.
