– Behind the music with WWE entrance theme composer Jim Johnston.
Johnston says it’s his job to create a song that perfectly fits with the wrestler and their personality. His personal favorite entrance themes are Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, Big Show, D-Generation X, HHH and performs some guitar riffs of these themes. Johnston’s advice to aspiring musicians is to practice as much as possible and don’t pre decide what you want to do in music. Get as good as you can possibly get and when an opportunity is presented, follow it all the way.
