I could remember back to the early times of play fighting. Back when wrestling really started to explode and lift off in its Community Wrestling Federation (WWF) days and nights. It was when Hulk Hogan, Macho Man Rowdy Savage and Andre the Giant were wrestling. Attention-grabber wrestlers like Iron Sheik, Million Dollar Man and Nikolai Volkov were there as well. There were diverse characters who was standing out and each a new story to inform. And they each emerged to the ring with powerful and different theme music which made them easily determined and cheered or jeered. 123wwe
Hulk Hogan has perhaps the most famous of wrestling tunes with “Real American”. Matching to info found at Wikipedia, Hogan at first used the Survivor song Attention of the Tiger which was from the Rugged movie’s soundtrack. Hogan of course had made a cameo in the Rugged 3 movie. Hulk later started using the track we all know, “Real American” as performed by Rick Derringer. The track became synonymous with Hulkamania and fans everywhere continue to cheer to it. Somehow fans can’t help but feel goosebumps when that tune occurs, whether they are at an arena or watching a WWE event at home. It’s classic and amazing music we identify with a wrestling legend.
