The Best Entrance Themes In
AEW, Ranked
By SERGIO PEREIRA
12. Jon Moxley
The feedback of X’s cover of “Wild Thing” quickly brings the AEW fans on their feet, anticipating the entry of Jon Moxley. The song embodies the unrestrained, unpredictable, and “wild” wrestling style of the multi-time AEW World Champion Jon Moxley, and similar to his unconventional style, his theme song is a punk rock version of a popular karaoke song.
11. Hook
Staying true to AEW’s practice of embracing their talents’ past and even securing the rights to their previous entrance themes, the company retained “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry’s 1985 disco hit “Tarzan Boy” by Baltimora. Khan confirmed with a tweet that he bought the rights to this extremely popular track as a Christmas present for Jungle Boy.
10. The Hardys
The classic Hardy Boys instrumental theme is one of the most iconic music pieces in all of pro wrestling, and the opening drum track gets the crowd thrashing along with Jeff Hardy as Team Extreme heads to the ring. When Jeff signed with AEW, Tony Khan won the rights to use Zack Tempest’s “Loaded,” along with the rest of the album.
9. Keith Lee
AEW’s music producer Mikey Rukus helped make Keith Lee’s rousing theme “I Am,” but it received criticism for not utilizing Lee’s raps in the verses — as he had contributed to his WWE theme. Responding to the critics, Ruckus tweeted, “But what type of [company] would we be if we asked him to leave his wedding [weekend] to get in the studio?”
8. Jungle Boy
Staying true to AEW’s practice of embracing their talents’ past and even securing the rights to their previous entrance themes, the company retained “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry’s theme, the 1985 disco hit “Tarzan Boy” by Baltimora. Khan confirmed with a tweet that he bought the rights to this extremely popular track as a Christmas present for Jungle Boy.
