I'm watching Smackdown and Reks comes out.
I listen to the song and it sounds EXACTLY like Darren Young's really awesome theme.
Youtub-ed it and found out it is, it's just a really stripped down version.
Here is Young's awesome version:


Here is Rek's version which is boring:


Like someone said on youtube:
"He takes Kaval's spot for BR and now steals DY's theme, who do they think this guy is??"

And has anyone found out why they aren't doing ANYTHING with Darren Young yet???
I mean he's been sitting in the back being the "missing link" for the past two months.:cuss:

I've said before, there are plenty of generic themes they could have given Reks, no need to confuse them like this.

Perhaps it's just a temporary theme and they will give Reks a new theme soon. They do it most of the time with the new wrestlers.

I can think of a couple reasons why they're not using Young. Although they're using Otunga too so they don't really apply across the board, unfortunately...

Well half of Nexus is a joke now, so I understand what you mean.
I guess I'm just still confused as to why Young was kicked out
in the first place then was given a Missing Link role and nothing happened.
I feel bad for him, and I think he's talented and would become better with time.

Darren Young should never have had a theme.

They'll probably give Reks a real theme since they seem to be pushing him at the moment (from obscure dark match wrestler to lower-end midcarder, I grant, but it's still a push) while Darren Young will probably be given his theme back as he toils away on Superstars. Or not, who knows?

WWE management probably realized what a terrible worker Young is even when facing an experienced opponent like William Regal. Darren Young doesn't even deserves to be in WWE. Hopefully I will never have to see that loser ever again.

Oh well they both suck anyway. Young would be at least be tolerable in a tag team with Watson. Reks is just garbage.

Yeah, giving him that theme and sending him out for that big interference was like testing the water to see if the crowd cared about him. They didn't.

Who needs Young? Nexus is in way way way better shape now with the addition of Husky and McGillicutty than before. Young sucked anyway

This is just another case of WWE creative and WWE production not caring about the product enough to take care of minute details such as trying to get different theme songs for two very different wrestlers....

Darren YOung would probably be best utilized in a tag team. Team him with Reks or reunite the South Beach Boyz from FCW, and he'd have a reason to be on TV.

Outside of that, I don't really see any reason to clear a spot for him.

Interesting. He had a pretty good match with Cena and got in alot of offense yet he's been kicked down and held back ever since. That's Raw booking for you.

Reks' version of the song sounds a bit like some of Lesnar's themes in a few places and I like it. Please don't assume I'm making the leap that Reks is going to get a Lesnar push based on that observation.

Darren Young should use Cena's old theme and start a Black Cena rap gimmick.
