I still like the Rock's just because of how arrogant it is; which is what it was setting out to do... very look at me.

This is where my understanding of this tournament escapes me.

There is no doubt that The Game is a better song. I have it on my playlist and listen to it a lot.

I would never listen to the Rock's them for "enjoyment".

However, the Rock's theme is far more recognizable and dare I say...iconic?

So, are we grading the quality of the music? Or it's fame? Or just how much we like it more?

I voted Rock here without much thought even though I think The Game is a better song. I mean this IS about entrance music right?

It's both a better song AND excellent entrance music. It was literally written for him. It's an iconic song that defined his character. He has a whole entrance timed to its nuances. The Game is better on all levels, period.

It's about the balance between how good the song is and how well it works as entrance music. I don't particularly care for Motorhead, but it's a solid rock song that perfectly fits the character. The lyrics work, the choreography and such with the water sitting. It just adds so much to HHH

Is Cooking is great and fits the Rock, but it doesn't add as much to the character as The Game.
