Seth Rollins Reveals That Vince McMahon Reduced The Amount Of "Woahs" In His Theme Song

Seth Rollins' entrance song originally had more "woahs"

Seth “Freakin” Rollins has gone from a crazed heel to beloved babyface over the last year, and a big part of his natural turn into a good guy has come with his infectious theme song, with fans chanting along with the “woahs” in the music, serenading Rollins with the noise, which can now be heard throughout his matches and promos too. 

In an interview with Logan Paul on the Impaulsive podcast, Rollins revealed that the original “Visionary” theme had more woahs, but they were removed by Vince McMahon. 

“When we first put the song out, Vince McMahon was hearing it for the first or second time, and he took a set of the ‘woahs’ out. He didn’t get the woahs. ‘Ah, that’s not Seth Freakin’ Rollins.' ‘I’m telling you.’ ‘No, just trust me.’ ‘Alright, fine, I’ll trust you.’ He took the woahs out and in the back of my mind I’m like, ‘You just wait.’ They never went back in. The version you hear now is still the Vince version, but there are enough of the woahs that it caught on. When I was a heel, no one was singing my song, they didn’t care. It wasn’t until August that we were in front of people.”

Rollins went on to explain how despite being a heel, the woahs caught on like wildfire.

“Eventually, I end up working with Matt Riddle, and there is this episode of Raw we did and at the end of the show, Riddle has this match, I come out and I stomp this man’s head into steel steps. Normally, as a bad guy, this elicits a chorus of boos, but I stomp his head into steps and I turn around expecting boos, the crowd is singing the song in the Garden [Madison Square Garden]. ‘Okay, I think this is a thing now. This is going to be a thing.’ Sure enough, little by little, it picked up and turned into it’s own animal.”
