Drew McIntyre has given his thoughts on eventually bringing back one of his most popular entrance themes, ‘Broken Dreams’.
McIntyre used the music from 2010-2012 during his original WWE run when he was known as the ‘Chosen One’. It seems it holds a special place in many fans hearts, as he is still asked whether he’ll ever use it again to this day. Speaking exclusively to Inside The Ropes‘ own Kenny McIntosh, the ‘Scottish Warrior’ was adamant that it would happen someday, likely at a bigger event.
“Yeah – I say it all the time in every interview I get asked, which is almost every interview, eventually it’s going to happen. I imagine it’s going to be in a bigger event, it might be as part of a package – we did that in NXT, prior to my match with Bobby Roode when I won the NXT title, we used a part of it and people were absolutely buzzing.”
The two-time WWE Champion went on to say that, rather than using the music ‘as is’, he sees it being used in combination with his current theme, much like Edge did with The Brood’s music at this year’s SummerSlam.
“I see it more like as a combination like Edge did just at SummerSlam there, with the Brood into his new music. If we could use it in some capacity at the beginning, cutting into the war pipes, which is more suitable for who I am today.”
McIntyre hopes that, if he is able to convince WWE to use the theme, fans will sing along like they do for Chris Jericho’s AEW entrance song, ‘Judas’, otherwise the Scotsman will be “devastated”.
“The thing I always say is, everybody please learn the words because if I somehow convince management ‘we gotta use this, because the fans love it, they’re all waiting for it, they’ve been asking me for it for years, they know all the words’, and I walk out there and nobody knows the words and they don’t sing it like Jericho’s song, I’ll be devastated, and I’m going to have to go back with my tail between my legs going ‘I was wrong’.”
Drew McIntyre wouldn’t be the first wrestler in WWE to be able to use a fan-favourite theme again. Jeff Hardy recently delighted fans when he came out to ‘No More Words’ to face Karrion Kross in the latter’s main roster debut.
