WWE Star Reveals They Didn’t Like Original Theme Song

Entrance music can become as iconic as a wrestler, but one WWE star wasn’t impressed when Vince McMahon first played his.

Whilst MVP might now be using the Baller’s Anthem during his WWE resurgence, his original I’m Comin’ theme was one of the most well known pieces of entrance music from his era. However, it took a while to grow on him.

A former United States and Tag Team Champion, MVP recently revealed to Fightful that he wasn’t a fan of the theme when Vince McMahon first pulled him to one side to hear it.

Not really. As I’ve said many times, Silkk the Shocker theme, I didn’t like it at first. I grew to like it in time. I was in the arena one afternoon and Vince called me over, had them play it. ‘This is gonna be your music.’ I remember when they were playing it, Vince was doing his awkward dance to it. I was like, ‘Vince, if you like it, I love it.’

At the time I was doing the Jim Jones balling, I’m a big fan of New York hip hop, I wanted something a little more boom-bap. It’s a great song. It became identified with me. I didn’t really have any say in it at all. It was just, ‘Here’s your music,’ ‘Oh, okay. Cool.’

MVP has moved in to a more managerial role in WWE, and is now in charge of Omos, who recently took on Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 39. Recently, he had praise for the way Omos has been improving.
