Growing up and watching the likes of Dusty Rhodes cutting promos and dropping 'bionic' elbows and Kevin Sullivan practicing satanic rituals, I never had a clue that they were backstage bookers! Who would have thought that these guys were the smoke and mirrors when it came to the storylines? Do you have anyone that surprised you like this? Thoughts?

I know some wrestlers also have 'creative control' in their contracts.

When I grew up watching the WWF post Hulkaminia era I never knew of the Kliq and how much power they had. I was always a big fan of HBK, Nash, Waltman and Hall but I never knew what power they had until the MSG curtain call. Even finding out the shit they got away with in WCW blew me away.

Am I the only one who thought of Cody Rhodes when I saw this thread? The only guy I could really think of is HHH s far as having a lot of power over the industry, and even then i knew he was talented enough to become champion w/o the politics.

Next time I created a thread, I'll be sure it's not a theme or catchphrase there, Beavis and Butthead! :)

Lol, Waltman with backstage pull, Bahahahahahaha! I don't recall him being invited to the curtain call! X-Sac was and will always be one of the biggest coattail riders in the history of the industry! Bahahahahaha, backstage influence, methinks not

I have always hated Sean Waltman and if it wasn't for his buddies he would of done absolutely nothing. Plus the bronco buster is one of the worst moves ever.

Yes. I rate wrestling music different than normal music. If the song fits the character, its a great theme - Cody's certainly suits him. And its catchy as hell, sometimes I catch myself singing it. (same with Ted's new one!!)

Thinking about that god awful song makes me cry.

No. A hip-hop theme is the LAST thing a rich elitist needs. "Money," by I Fight Dragons=infinatly better.

Cody's theme feels retro, as in an 80's hair band feel.
