Jon Moxley Debuts New Entrance Theme On AEW: Dynamite

Paying homage to Onita?

Jon Moxley made his way to the ring with new entrance music on last night's edition of Dynamite.

Moxley has used 'Unscripted Violence' since joining All Elite Wrestling, but 'Wild Thing' by The Troggs played throughout Daily's Place as The Maestro Of Mayhem headed to the ring for his match with Yuji Nagata. 

Written by Chip Taylor, 'Wild Thing' was popularised by The Troggs in 1966 and reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100. The Troggs' version was also ranked by Rolling Stone magazine as the 257th greatest song of all time. 

The song has been covered by numerous different artists, including the Jimi Hendrix Experience and punk rock band X, whose version is used by Japanese deathmatch wrestling legend Atsushi Onita. If Moxley was paying homage to Onita with the entrance is currently unknown, but many thought the song was apt for the AEW World Champion. 

AEW has started to make a habit out of using licensed music on Dynamite. Tony Khan secured the rights to 'Tarzan Boy' by Baltimora as a present for Jungle Boy in late 2020 and Orange Cassidy also recently debuted 'Where Is My Mind?' by The Pixies as his new theme.
