Drew McIntyre has a very clear vision about how he wants a return of his ‘Broken Dreams’ entrance music to pan out.
During his original run and when he was known as ‘The Chosen One’ McIntyre used the theme between 2010 and 2012. There have been many occasions when fans have asked if the music will return, and speaking with Inside The Ropes he confirmed it’s something he would like to happen, and probably as part of a big 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.
McIntyre also discussed that it wouldn’t necessarily be a straight-up version of the original music, but a mashup with his current theme similar to Edge did with The Brood’s theme at SummerSlam 2021.
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.
The two-time WWE Champion also has desires for the fans to sing along to the theme and create even more of an atmosphere, just as happens with Chris Jericho’s now iconic Judas entrance song, claiming he would be “devastated” if that didn’t happen.
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’.
It certainly isn’t unheard of for wrestlers in WWE to use their original themes for certain occasions, with Jeff Hardy recently making his entrance to ‘No More Words’ for a contest with Karrion Kross.
