You have to start somewhere. There are a lot of parts to any wrestling show. These can include the wrestling, the promos, the vignettes and the commentary, but the production values, including the show openings, are important as well. A good look to a show can make things look more or less interesting, and one of the few parts that a lot of people are going to see is the show’s introduction. There have been a lot of these over the years, and I think you know where this is going.
If nothing else, the music is still sweet.
WWE has released a video showing the History of WWE TV Show Introductions. The video offers a collection of opening sequences to wrestling shows, with a huge selection of shows from over the years. These openings range from modern shows like Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live to older shows like Tuesday Night Titans and Saturday Night’s Main Event. Some shows have more than one entry included.
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that I could watch all day as WWE really knows what they’re doing with their intros. They’re a great way to show people what they might be getting that night with some high energy and good music. WWE has done a great job with these things over the years and some of those songs really bring you back to an era that worked so well.
