8th Sexy Boy – Shawn Michaels

“Sexy Boy” was originally sung by Sensational Sherri, Shawn’s manager, when this theme was introduced. Shawn sang the version that became permanent, which was a good idea since Shawn’s voice made this song so captivating. Shawn was very arrogant and flamboyant in the new generation era, which he was able to make work with his talents in the ring.

“Sexy Boy” exudes the mood of a handsome man and he knows it when he talks about making his admirers tremble and weak in his presence. The sound effects of “Oh, Oh, Shawn!” At the very beginning, emphasize the message of the topic; Shawn knew he was a star and flaunted it.

7 Hell Frozen – Steve Austin

In developing his “Stone Cold” persona and catchphrase “Austin 3:16,” “Hell Frozen Over” was the theme intended to convey Austin’s anti-hero attitude, while the drums and guitars let fans know Steve was into it to beat up his opponents.

This song was important in establishing Steve Austin as a top wrestler because it fitted his personality so well and told his story through the instruments alone.

6 Cemetery Symphony – The Undertaker

Whenever Undertaker walked into a WWE arena to the tune of this song, the lights went out and slowly walking to the ring in his gear made the whole gimmick work.

5 Mastodon – Father

During Vader’s brief stint in WWE beginning in the New Generation Era, “Mastodon” made him sound like a domineering beast who would wreak havoc in the ring.

Between his voice initially saying, “Oh, it’s time, it’s Vader time!” and the guitar and drums that followed, the message was clear; Vader was tall and a tough wrestler.

4 Psycho Dance – Psycho Sid

When Sid first started working with the Psycho persona in the New Generation Era, “Psycho-Dance” was a good choice for both the song name and the instruments. The beginning of the song has horror movie-style sound effects to drown out Sid’s spooky vibes in the gimmick.

The background music between the drums gave off an air of swagger and a guy to watch out for. Given how successful Razor was during the New Generation Era, this song suited him.

2 Diesel Blues – Diesel

When Kevin Nash found success as a singles wrestler during the New Generation, “Diesel Blues” was an ideal song for the Diesel personality. The song begins with the horn of a diesel truck followed by drums and guitars consistent with a dark tough guy.

The drums are very pronounced in this song, which is appropriate because Diesel was a big, big, and intense wrestler. When Diesel entered the arenas with this song, fans knew they were going to see a brawl in the ring.

1 With my baby tonight – Jesse James
