WWE Star Was Set To Use Hulk Hogan’s Theme

A current WWE Superstar has revealed that there was once a plan for them to use Hulk Hogan’s iconic theme music.

Hulk Hogan first used “Real American” as his entrance music back in 1985 and it grew to become one of the most beloved themes in wrestling. The Hulkster used the patriotic tune throughout the era of Hulkamania until he left the WWF in 1993.

When Hogan returned to the company in 2002, he had dropped the song, instead using the nWo theme and then, once he left that group, opting for his WCW music, ‘Voodoo Chile’ by Jimi Hendrix.

However, in the years since his last full-time run, Hulk Hogan has once again been coming out to the strains of ‘Real American’ when he makes guest appearances on WWE TV.

Now, a current WWE Superstar has revealed that he almost began using the theme song as well.

In a post on social media, a fan suggested that Mustafa Ali should use the iconic entrance music as “Real Americans come in every shape, size and skin tone.” The former Retribution leader responded, revealing that at one point that was indeed the plan.

In the wake of Triple H’s appointment as WWE’s Head of Creative, Mustafa Ali has begun to be featured more heavily on TV.

In recent weeks he has attempted to become the number one contender for the United States Title and later teamed with Cedric Alexander to take on Ciampa and The Miz. Meanwhile, at live events, Ali has been wrestling Finn Balor.
