Why did wwf change Goldberg's theme?

What was the deal with this then? Looking back he had his classic wcw them for his debut then they changed it and even went back and redubbed it on old Nitro archive footage? Does anyone know? I thought the original theme was badass, the new one not so much.

What we've got here is failure to communicate

A bigger offense on the retard scale is using "u" instead of you.

Re: Why did wwf change Goldberg's theme?

WCW didn't produce the original song. WWE likes owning the rights to whatever songs they have. Copyright is tricky with music. If you sample or use it without the rights to it that's a violation. If you replay it with minor changes it's not.

I've heard the song in old war documentaries too.

Same thing with a lot of NXT themes recently. They probably had limited rights to the songs they were using but the second they started the WWE Network Paige, Ascension, Graves and Neville all got new themes. It boils down to what rights you have with each song.

No two cases are the same either. WWE has had the rights to "Cult of Personality" to the point that they can even put it on video games, but they've had to edit out the uses of "Ain't No Grave" for Undertaker. It makes sense though, I'd imagine the rights to Johnny Cash would be a lot higher than Living Colour.

Re: Why did wwf change Goldberg's theme?

WWE made a mistake, by changing the theme, it didn't help Goldberg get over like in WCW. But also by the time Goldberg had come to WWE, it had been 5 years since he was in his heydey and World Champion. He had been not used well from 99-2001 when WCW closed, so maybe WWE thought by rebranding his theme, it would help.

It sucks they didn't or couldn't use Goldberg's WCW theme. It was great and overall his WCW entrance was amazing. WWE shouldn't have changed a thing about it. It was one of the things that really worked with his character.
