Re: Should TNA get a new music composer?

Actually, a lot of the themes these days are not Dale Oliver's. Dixie's husband, Serg Salinas, is producing a lot of the themes and has been for a few years now. So, TNA's music department is essentially a Serg/Dale collaboration.

Re: Should TNA get a new music composer?

Yes some themes are really generic. Beginning of the Roode's are good but rest is steady. Aries also has generic one. They ruin AJ's great theme IMO. Samoa Joe's fine, so is Angle's. My favorite themes from all time is 1th LAX theme, Mick Foley's Bang Bang, MCMG, Cage's Takeover.

Re: Should TNA get a new music composer?

They are hit and miss, sometimed they come up with GOAT themes like roode/storm but then there's something like texmex theme.



The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.

Even Harry Slash produced some memorable themes for ECW. Wrestling themes are an important part of the product. Some themes even get wrestlers more over than their talents deserve them to. The production quality of Dale's themes is crap too. He has had a few decent themes, but he's also been doing this so long and yet it still isn't anything worth writing home about. It's probably not in their "to-do lists" right now or any time soon, but do you think TNA should get a new music composer?
How well does Country music and wrestling go together? Ask Jimmy Hart.

A person's personal musical taste and background isn't an automatic disqualifier on whether or not they will make shitty ass theme music. The majority of the stuff Dale Oliver has put out has been ass and generic ass at that. Instead of creating songs that can sell and POUND throughout the arena to get people hyped...he just takes the WCW (let's pull some Viacom bumper music) road and it makes TNA look low rent in comparison. Eric Bischoff comes out to the same music he did in WCW. Hogan comes out to the NWO theme. Gail Kim and Tara's theme are water-down versions of their WWE theme. Its time for something someone new and someone who doesn't take their music cues from WWE or want to be generic music WCW heaven.

Right now there are only a few good themes in TNA. People who have music that as soon as I hear I KNOW. Its them. TNA needs not to go the nu-metal route of WWE, but needs to create their own identity desperately.

Re: Should TNA get a new music composer?

I think the old ones are terrible but i think the new ones are actuely the best in wrestling. I dont want to hear main stream music.Its more unque when a wrestler has a song made just for them.I feel they are getting really good and fitted well to the wrestlers.

Not in order but good songs.

Robert Roode
Open Fight Night - Jeff hardy helped produce it with the music producer . Oliver ? whatever the name is.
Jeff hardy theme
James Storm
AJ first song was acutely the best
Daniels new theme really fits his character right now
Sting
RVD
Bully Ray
Aces fits the theme of the group
Kurt Angle


These are just a few of the good ones. If you see a patter with good themes.Its people that have long term contracts or have been around all ready for a while.Why invest in making a great theme.When you dont know if they will be around.All of the newer guys at least a handful will be gone at some point.

Re: Should TNA get a new music composer?

Most of the TNA themes do suck royally. The only one that I like is Sting's. The rest need to be deleted from the Enco ASAP. Yes, new music writer please.

Jimmy Hart used to be a vocalist for a rock band when he was younger.

Re: Should TNA get a new music composer?

i agree that tna themes are very lacklustre. christian cage and sting's themes are the only ones that i really ever liked a lot. doesn't help either that jim johnston makes dale look like a peanut.

Re: Should TNA get a new music composer?

Bully Ray's theme, aside from the atomic bomb spot in the beginning, sounds like a generic early 90's testosterone hair metal instrumental. In fact, almost every theme has an element of early 90's testosterone hair metal instrumental.
