Specialty missing from entrances

(this isn't WWE-UFC comparison thread)

Anyone else feel like even with the minitrons and all that, that WWE entrances don't feel that special in terms of difference between stars? Other than the music, most entrances are basically the same feel to it.


Watching UFC today, makes me wish WWE had entrances like this more. Not so much the coming almost through the crowd type of thing(that WWE also used to do), but just the whole feel of the entrance, with all the emotion in it, and the lighting and all that.

The second the lights go out before an entrance in UFC, then the guys music hits, it sets a completely different feel to things(especially Bensons one tonight), something that only seems to happen in WWE for maybe 2-3 guys.

I even remember playing old WWE video games(from like 5-10 years ago) and during "create an entrance" the variation in lighting for stars, was so diff. Each star had their own set of entrance light colors and all that, but today it seems like nobody has anything special.

Re: Specialty missing from entrances

Entrances don't mean anything to me. Just get in the ring and wrestle.

Re: Specialty missing from entrances

I know what you mean, a lot of the entrances seem so generic and I think the music is a big part too, %80 the roster has some type of rock influenced theme song and those are so boring

Re: Specialty missing from entrances

I agree. Would be nice if some guys had cooler entrances. Triple H and Undertaker come to mind when thinking about entrances with cool lighting effects. Not even much pyro anymore.

Ortons lighting is great too(the lighting tied in with his music)

He doesn't use it anymore, but one of the lights I was talking about that I saw in video games, was Cenas. Hart Foundation lights were great in the video games too

Re: Specialty missing from entrances

mmm, the entrances somewhat sums up the whole product.

More entrances like Triple H and Taker. You really dont need to do that much either. Just give them a little different walk, run or whatever. Another recent wrestler that had a little funnier entrance is Hunico with his bike.
Sure, Del Rio comes in the arena with different cars, but after that, its stereotypcial walk to the ring.

Re: Specialty missing from entrances

Kane still has a interesting intro but alot of wrestlers today do
have bland entrances the last that comes to mind with a good intro
besides hunico's bike I thought the Boogeyman had a unigue intro.

1) Ziggler needs a ton of blue and yellow laser lights. Maybe a Flair robe.
2) Punk needs darker stadium lights with heavy white strobe lights.
3) Byran needs missile fire works (similar to what team 3D had) that shoot down the ramp following him every time he says YES!
4) Dean Ambrose needs a dark creepy/sadistic entrance, Undertaker meets Goldust, meets Mankind.

Re: Specialty missing from entrances

Why bother with more entrances in a 3 hour show when you could show a billion commercials instead?
