Jim Johnston Reveals The Last Theme Song He Wrote For WWE

Johnston included references to his departure from WWE in the song

Former WWE composer Jim Johnston has revealed the last theme song he wrote that was used by WWE was for Baron Corbin. 

Johnston worked for WWE for 35 years before being let go by the company in 2017. The iconic composer wrote legendary themes for the likes of The Undertaker and Steve Austin. 

The 61-year-old has now said the last song that he wrote that was used by WWE was the 'End Of Days' song for Baron Corbin, which contained references to his impending departure from the promotion.

Johnston told Chris Van Vliet: "It was 'End of Days' for Baron Corbin. Which was very apropos; if you look at the lyrics, there’s always something personal to the themes. A lot of the times it’s very personal. Baron’s was purely an epic ‘I’m bringing end of days on you.’ It’s very biographical.

"Also I’m talking about ‘the end is coming, I’m bowing out.’ The big goodbye was my end of days. There’s a lot of stuff in there, anger and disappointment.

"But that happened a lot. 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."
