Thought of the Day: Fight Over The Music

I only remember seeing this twice and it hasn’t happened in over 25 years.Back in 1986, Hulk Hogan and Paul Orndorff had a HUGE feud.  During the course of this, Orndorff started to use Hogan’s legendary Real American song as his own, claiming that he (Orndorff) was the true Real American.

 

In 1987, the Young Stallions formed and started using a song called Crank It Up.  Jimmy Hart, the writer of the song, was angry because he wanted the Hart Foundation to use it.

 

Why don’t we see theme music as a feud starter anymore?  I know a lot of the songs are generic and could be interchanged, but given how similar a lot of the feuds are anymore, this is as a good an idea as anything else for getting people not liking each other.

    I think the reason for this now is there is no theme music worth feuding over. It’s all generic

    I was assuming Austin Aries would come out to Jeff Hardy’s Immortal theme (the lyrics do describe a one of a kind person) during their feud after he said creative turned down his asking for a new theme in favor of Hardy. Who did end up with a new theme and video. Shame too, because Aries’ theme is really generic and Hardy’s Immortal theme was very good.
