It’s how it starts. Wrestling is a form of entertainment and since it airs on television, you have to hook your audience in a hurry. One of the best ways to get things going is with a catchy video and song, which is where things can get fans’ attention right of the bat. WWE has done these well for years and now it seems that they have done it all over again with some fresh faces.
Earlier this month, WWE ran its annual Draft, which saw a good chunk of the active roster moved either to or from Monday Night Raw and SmackDown. Some of the names stuck around on the same shows, but there were so many names moved around that it could be hard to keep track of things. It might be helpful to put things together in a new video and maybe with a catchy song.
It might get your attention. Check out the new Monday Night Raw intro:
This week’s Monday Night Raw featured a new opening video, now featuring the updated roster after the Draft. The show also featured a new theme song with The Search by NF. This is the first change of theme song in just over a year, after Skillet’s Legendary was used from September 30, 2019 – October 12, 2020. SmackDown also featured a new entrance video during last week’s show.
Opinion: This is one of the places where WWE shines. Despite their rather hit and miss record when it comes to their in-ring product, their production work has always been one of their greatest strengths. They are able to make things look great no matter what else is going on. The new video works out rather well and hopefully the show itself lives up to the opening hype.
