It's because everyone's entrances, with the exception of a few at the top of the card, are all the same just with some different generic pop rock song.

The only few unique entrances these days like Punk or Orton. Other than those few though, the only ones that stand out are the guys that have been doing their shtick for for a very long time such as HHH, Taker, Kane, etc.

I'm of the opinion that entrances can make or break a character. It's why I think Jim Johnston is one of the most, if not the most underrated person in the WWE. Imagine the characters of Stone Cold, Undertaker, The Rock, Triple H, etc. if they didn't have their iconic entrances. The list of wrestlers who have epic music goes on and on. And that influence is sorely lacking these days.

Quote:
In 2008, Johnston publicly expressed his frustration to Billboard Magazine at the inability of WWE to secure better promotional deals with artists due to a lack of understanding of the WWE product. He said, ""One of my frustrations is getting the word out about just how much music is used in our product. The labels will stumble over themselves to get on MTV, but no one's watching MTV."

Remember Razor Ramon's entrance and the pyro when he did his pose in the ring? So simple yet unique.

I miss the pyro, but having too much for entrances will make the beginning of show and PPVs less special, unless they go all out for beginning pyro.
I also really liked when security used to escort them to the ring. Made them seem important and badass.
I think the pyro lessened due to budget cuts.
Really like all the themes, except for the Divas themes. Amongst them Eve has the best.

I think that even narrowing the entrance way so that it brings the fans closer to the wrestlers would make things more fun plus I would give them more seats to sell on the floor. Like the OP said they used to do this before and it really gave the crowd a connection with the wrestlers, it seemed like it was going to be a brutal war no matter who was coming down. It gave the crowd and viewers a connection with the wrestler, at least it did for me, now it’s just larger than life and from my perspective they might as well just do them while on commercial break.

It doesn’t even need all the pyros or anything that way. It’s a more aggressive approach to entering the ring. It’s too easy for a heel to simply ignore the crowd when they are so far away and they walk down the center of the ramp. I like the more in your face approach.

As many said though, the music isn’t very good either. If I was a musical artist I’d be sending the WWE my every song hoping they’d have someone they could use it for. Easy way to promote yourself and get people listening to you music.
