Dolph Ziggler doesn’t like his theme song?



Arda Ocal (@arda_ocal) and Jimmy Korderas (@jimmykorderas) of Right After Wrestling recently spoke with Zack and Justin, members of the rock band Downstait, who recorded the themes for Miz, Alex Riley and Dolph Ziggler. Highlights:

Being fans of pro wrestling long before getting to do perform their respective theme songs

Their take on getting to hear their songs being used as themes for The Miz, Alex Riley and Dolph Ziggler

Who contacted them to do those theme songs and the “theme song” process from start to finish

The reaction that WWE superstars have to their songs being used as their themes
“We actually saw Dolph Ziggler backstage once and we asked him ‘what’s happening?’ And he just shook it off like we were fans and then we said, ‘hey man, we do your theme song’ and he just walked passed us and said ‘thanks’. ‘I am perfection’ is a song we did last September, but they just waited for his character to turn harder before they used it.

Would their music branch out to other sports – and if so – where else can fans hear their songs?

Possibly performing at a live WWE PPV event in the future – possibly WrestleMania – like Motorhead or Saliva
“We actually spoke to Miz backstage around WrestleMania 27. I told him it would be cool if we could play him out to the ring but he already had the whole entrance set. And Miz said ‘it wasn’t a heel-thing to have a band play them to the ring’. And I was like what about Motorhead playing Triple H and even the DX band playing Shawn Michaels out to the ring. And he said they would keep that idea in mind for next year.”

Their take on merchandise for the band – and the parallels to selling merchandise in the WWE

All this plus so much more!

    I listened to the interview and it seemed like Dolph was just burnt out when they ran into him

    lol I bet Dolph Ziggler was just staying in Character ;)

    His music is a heat killer just like his name.

    Its a corny name and song for a guy who is trying to be serious, maybe with him dropping Vickie they will figure out something more fitting for him…not banking on it tho.

  5. Amid Diking says:

    Headline is deceptive and misleading. Maybe he doesn’t like the song but he never said how he feels one way or the other. Should he have gotten really excited to meet the band that made his entrance song?… He said thank you, what did they expect? a reach around?

  6. Big D. says:

    Ziggler has one of the best entrance themes out there right now and one of the most unique names to hit wrestling in a long time. At least he isn’t some generic, boring wrestler like most of the WWE guys today.

  7. Yup says:

    By the way, Miz was right about having a band play you to the ring not being a heel thing. It was weird when Motorhead did it for Triple H when he was a heel too.
