Re: AEW needs to improve entrances

I agree, but I also realize that they've barely started. I'll judge it more when they're a few months into TV and if it still feels like they're using stock music then.

The entrances will get better

All it takes is money and spending it on the right things

Tony Khan has the money and Daddy Khan has more, and they have experience with this kind of thing from owning the Jaguars. The NFL is big on flashy entrances, showmanship, all that good stuff

Re: AEW needs to improve entrances

WCW gave people stock music all the time and it eventually worked. Pat Tanaka used what would eventually be Goldberg's theme in 1996. There we go.

Not everything is going to be a la McMahon's world. Even then, Kurt Angle's now signature theme was The Patriot's first. This is pro wrestling.

Cody has a kick ass theme, in my opinion.

Re: AEW needs to improve entrances

I totally agree with this. To be fair, they're just starting up, so it may be a work in progress. I find the likes of Kenny Omega's theme just lacks any depth. Compared to his NJPW theme, it just doesn't quite cut it. Let alone the others.

The ones that work the best were the pre-existing ones, i.e. Hangman's, Jericho's, Cody's and the Bucks.

Re: AEW needs to improve entrances

I remember reading interviews with Jim Johnston being very willing to work with AEW if called.

Re: AEW needs to improve entrances

I love Cody's entrance song/music. Page is fine. Jericho's Judas is great. Kenny's suck.. i was kind of excited when he hinted it to be something cool... it wasnt to me tbh. YB and Omega need something similar to Bullet Club theme song.

The actual music doesnt mean much, its mostly about that initial notification of who it is. Its pretty important stuff and yet it gets ignored mostly everywhere these days.
Amazing point. This sums everything up really.

I find they have some very good themes too though. Dustin rhodes is so good. Plus they allow outside themes like hangmans.

A lot of that will sort itself out with the weekly show.

I hope we dont get a massive stage set.

Gove us a modern unique version of the classic nitro set

Agreed. I want add, during TNA golden age, they were some interesting entrances: Down in the Catacombs a mix of classical music and heavy metal to describe Abyss as a monster Gimmick; Stampede started with military effects to describe Rhino as a War Machine; Ron "The Truth" Killings created a great rap by himself; before Destroyer, Nation of violence used tribal rhythm to introduce Samoa Joe.

The point is: entrances must describe gimmick's traits. It may adds intros, ambients and sound effects to get improve them.
