    Do you want to see Taker in this year’s WM? I sure don’t.

    He's obviously seen better days, but I do want them to give him a definitive send off. Whatever that entails, it should be at Wrestlemania.

    I guess if it’s against Kane, I will be fine with it. Other than that, meh!

    Honestly, I was disappointed to see him wrestle again after he lost to Roman at WM. The way he left was almost a perfect way for him to retire.

    I just don’t see him as type to make a big speech or anything like that.

    Bobby Roode’s Glorious.

    Old school: Pomp and Circumstances with Randy Savage (Before my time, Gorgeous George used it too). At my high school graduation, we were joking about Savage as we made our entrance.

    Current theme: Sami Zayn. I like the ska vibe to it. Becky Lynch's is similar.

    Older themes: Can't go wrong with Real American. Also partial to Jericho's original WCW theme.

    What were reactions when this happened?

    Was this a shocking moment for you guys?

    Finn Balor made a surprise appearance in the NXT UK: Takeover special today, facing his legit protege Jordan Devlin to a huge pop.

    I like having the main roster starts make cameos in the NXTs. Tyler Breeze wrestled Ricochet for the NXT North American title a few weeks ago.

    Actually, I wasn't shocked at all. The WWF Magazine had an article a month or two earlier talking about supposed friction between The Rockers, which was obviously setting up the angle. Then, on the WWF syndicated show, there was a title match with LOD, where The Rockers lost and the two had an argument in ring. By the time they started the Barber Shop bit, I knew how it was going to end.
    That said, the angle was done very well, and Heenan's work on that was great.

    The Jericho theme? Wasn't that the one that Jericho despised? He's said it was just something they picked out of the TBS stock library and it was titled "Basketball Highlights #7" or something like that.

    For theme songs, I'd have to pick the Ultimate Warrior's. It always seemed to get the crowd pumped up, and it was perfect for the character.

    To each is own. Question was favorite theme, not "best" theme. I always enjoyed it.
