Watch Imperium Bring Back Old Entrance & Theme Song On SmackDown

Watch Imperium Bring Back Old Entrance & Theme Song On SmackDown WWE

One of the more surprising moments from last weekend’s Clash at the Castle show in Cardiff was the WWE main roster arrival of NXT star Giovanni Vinci.

Vinci was the third member of the Imperium group, as Fabian Aichner, alongside WALTER (Gunther) and Marcel Barthel (Ludwig Kaiser) in NXT, staying on the developmental show with a repackaged character while his stablemates moved up to SmackDown.

Vinci arrived at Clash at the Castle however, reuniting Imperium ahead of Gunther’s incredible Intercontinental Championship BANGER with Sheamus.

Tonight’s SmackDown show opened with a six-man tag team match, pitting Gunther, Kaiser and Vinci against Sheamus, Butch and Ridge Holland, and fans of the old Imperium group were losing their mind right from the get go.

Imperium made their first full entrance together, with a throwback entrance using their old titantron and the introduction of their ‘Symphony No. 9 in E Minor’ theme song, before transitioning into Gunther’s current WWE theme song.

Still a nice callback. It should 100% be their group theme even if Gunther keeps his singles theme.
