My favorites in no particular order:

Edge - Metalingus (Alter Bridge)
SCSA - Glass Shatters (Disturbed)
Savage - Pomp & Circumstances
Evolution - Line in the Sand (Motorhead)
Jericho - Break the Walls Down (Sevendust)
Matt Hardy - Live for the Moment (Monster Magnet)

3 of those are in the Elite 8.
4 of the wrestlers are (different version of SCSA)

3 of them are from WWE Foreceable Entry...which happens to have a bunch more that I love including Benoit and Lita

I would argue that 2 more could or should have been (Edge, Evolution)...so it's pretty obvious where I'm at in my fandom re: genre.

Savage's is the only one on my list that stands out as different.

I was kinda surprised that Foley's long time theme; the one with the squealing tires and then goes upbeat, didn't go further... Like I don't even remember seeing it.

Otherwise I dunno what my all time favourite themes are... Cena's is up there, I really dig that one that Drew McIntyre used to use... Picking the best themes is tough because the entrance is such a part of it, or how well it works for a run in versus a big stadium entrance... tough stuff, but I think all of those that have made it to the sweet 16 have generally been well argued for.

It lost in the first round to Cactus Jack’s “Whole Lotta Groove” theme...by one vote.

Ah... Thanks Matte; I think I was playing during the first round; could have been with so many it was easy to overlook the odd thread.

Thanks for doing this BTW- lot's of fun, and it's clear you put a lot of work into this.

I think I can safely say that all four themes in the final four deserve to make the final four, and all four could legitimately be the champion.

Thanks for putting on another shOOwdown Matte, excellent work like always!

And I liked this particular one because the winner was kind of unexpected. Jericho's theme is a personal favorite of mine, but I wouldn't have pegged it to win the whole thing. Though I'm still bitter that Goldust's theme didn't even make it to the Elite 8.
