Jim Johnston Reveals Unique Inspiration Behind Vince McMahon Theme

Legendary composer Jim Johnston has revealed the bizarre inspiration behind No Chance In Hell, the entrance music for Vince McMahon.

Jim Johnston composed many classic WWE themes during his time with the company. From Triple H to The Rock, many iconic stars walked to the ring with Johnston’s work on full blast.

Vince McMahon has one of the most memorable entrances in WWE history. Johnston has now revealed that he wrote “No Chance In Hell” while annoyed with The Chairman.

Speaking with Chris Van Vliet, Johnston explained how he added a personal touch to most WWE themes he created. Admitting that he was frustrated with McMahon, Johnston revealed his true inspiration for the impactful track.

Here is the full quote:

“I wrote ‘No Chance In Hell’ when I was really angry with Vince. It was a literal telling of what I saw. You have no chance against this guy. He doesn’t play by the rules.”

After over 30 years with the company, Johnston was released from his WWE contract in 2017. He made his first non-WWE wrestling appearance at the Starrcast convention in 2018.

Vince McMahon is still the chairman and chief executive officer of WWE. John Cena has recently described his current relationship with McMahon since The Champ stopped wrestling to focus on other projects.
