It’s a good indicator. Theme music is one of the most important thing to a wrestler’s career. If they come out to the wrong song, everything can be thrown out of wack, but if they come out to the right song, everything could be put together perfectly. Sometimes you find something that is completely perfect, and now we might be seeing someone move in that direction for a good reason.
During last week’s SmackDown, Universal Champion Roman Reigns debuted a new theme song, marking the end of the same theme music he had used since his debut as part of the Shield in 2012. According to Reigns’ advocate Paul Heyman during an interview with Complex, the idea of the change had been to completely end Reigns’ association with the Shield. This is the same reason that Reigns changed his in-ring gear and the rest of his look.
Reigns and Heyman have been paired together since Reigns’ return to WWE in August 2020. The pair has been successful, with Reigns winning the Universal Title in his first match back at Payback and holding it ever since. Heyman has described himself as the advocate for Reigns and has done various things that Reigns demands of him. Reigns is scheduled to defend the Universal Title against Cesaro at WrestleMania Backlash.
The music has suited him. Check out Reigns’ debut with the new theme:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that needed to happen as Reigns’ old music felt like he just wouldn’t let the Shield days go. The new one also suits the idea of Reigns being above and better than everyone else, which is the way someone like him should be presented. It fits well and it could be part of a heck of a great run for him as the top villain in all of WWE for a long time to come.
What do you think of the song? How long will Reigns hold the title? Let us know in the comments below.
