Both of these themes are pretty iconic, but I think Austin's is just a little bit more iconic than Vince's as far as iconic-ness goes, so I'm picking the more iconic theme here, which is Austin's. They're both iconic though.

Ausin's is more iconic and has the greatest opening riff of all time, Vince's is better in EVERYTHING ELSE. Fun lyrics, better beat, fun to listen to as a song and it defines the character it was made for.

Voting for Vince but Austin will probably based on the two things that it has over ''No Chance''. Oh well, atleast Vince is doing the job to his greatest rival once again.

Vince because it made me laugh when he did his swaggering walk to the ring with this accompanying him.

Man, for me it's funny cause take away that glass breaking and Austin's theme is just okay... I think I'm going to go with Vince's theme here... It just fits him so well, and while Austin's is really good it also screams "generic" in a lot of ways.

People are hung up on the fact that "only the glass breaking" is cool.

This is about best entrance music. No entrance music caused bigger crowd pops than Austin's theme.

Austin's music should advance here.

oh snap. No Chance had a pretty good lead over the weekend, but Austin's theme has moved past it as of yesterday. Quite the comeback!

Austin's theme is iconic but overall underwhelming. Vince's is a lot more fun to listen to, and it's not like it lacks a real connection to the guy using it. It's perfect for him and has lasted for twenty years now. That's some real longevity to get out of one theme song.
