Sheamus is determined to bring back his old theme song, ‘Written In My Face’, promising that there will be a time and a place for him to use it again.
Ahead of the main event of Clash At The Castle, a video package aired with a retrospective of Drew McIntyre’s WWE career to the sounds of his much-loved original theme, ‘Broken Dreams’.
McIntyre had been pushing to use the song again for months and the massive UK stadium show seemed like the perfect opportunity for it to return, Triple H and Kevin Dunn agreed and the rest is history.
Another star who has been pushing to use his old theme song is Sheamus, but the Irishman has had little luck in persuading WWE so far.
Speaking exclusively to Inside The Ropes’ own Kenny McIntosh, Sheamus explained that he will keep pushing for it to happen.
“I definitely would love to bring that song back. Before, I know, it was stopped, they weren’t gonna let me have it. It’s amazing what a song can do or an entrance music can do to bring people back in with that nostalgia.
“I definitely will keep pushing to have that song back, and it’s something that I haven’t given up on. But I think there’ll be a time and place for that to come back.
“I think that it will be massive and I’ll be able buzzing off it too because like that just brings back so many memories of the beginning of my career and for fans too as well. So yeah, it’s cool. I don’t know.
Sheamus went on to reveal that he wanted to bring it back when he returned from a month-long absence due to injury in 2019. The former WWE Champion had dropped his mohawk, going back to his older appearance and wanted the song to go with the change.
“It’s a song that I like man, it’s just you know it’s part of my entrance. I wanted to bring it back when I came back and when I brought the old look back.
“So the reason I wanted to change the music when I had the Mohawk is just a completely different look, kind of different character and then when I came back the idea was to bring back the old music back, but some things you can get by, you know, some things get knocked back.
“But I haven’t given up hope. I think when that happens, it will happen, I think it will be awesome.”
