We very nearly had new entrance music for Kofi Kingston earlier this year when he was attempting to win the WWE Championship from Daniel Bryan.
He did of course do this, but entered the match at WrestleMania 35 to the usual “OHHHHHH WRESTLEMANIA!!!!” followed by the New Day theme.
American rapper Mega Ran has just revealed that he had actually written and performed new entrance music for Kofi, but that for some reason it was dropped just before the show.
Speaking to Wrestling Inc. Mega Ran said:
“I like it a lot. We had an opportunity for Kofi’s entrance at WrestleMania to create a new song. Unfortunately, it got turned down at the 11th hour as I think a lot of folks were scared to pull the trigger on a new theme at that moment. But I like the way it came out and I hope one day they consider it.
“But I think it’s time for a new theme. I do love it and it’s super-catchy, but it’s been five years which is a testament in itself as no tag team lasts five years… It doesn’t get booed or boring so I think they’ve got a formula. Maybe they know what they’re doing by sticking with it.
“You can’t turn down that pop, that guaranteed reaction. You’re running a risk of taking that away if you change it. So, I get it.”
