Unknown Themes?

Post by Sw12005 »

I've been collecting themes for about 15 year now, and I've come across a lot of fan made packs that included themes that sound legit, but don't match the records on xylot. I decided to make a YouTube page, featuring these themes with the hope that the expert ears here can help identify them. Maybe some of them are mislabeled and might belong to another wrestler, ect. Thanks for your time and efforts.

I only looked a few that I might know, and only know a couple for sure:

Santino's is unused and from the entrance video that was on WWE.com. We have it listed on a misc. page for him: https://xylotthemes.com/#!/themes/wwe/s ... arellamisc

Garrison Cade's is also unused, and was only used in at least one of the video games (SmackDown! vs Raw - but I believe it may have also been used in the Day of Reckoning game as well).

Where'd you get some of these alleged WCW themes?

Anyways I can answer the Vince Russo one, it was only used on his debut on the rebooted April 10th, 2000 Nitro. As to how it's on the internet? No idea I've wondered that myself. Well I've wondered how a lot of the themes are on the internet. Like this

WCW didn't release any of that music officially....so who did? I vaguely remember something about a CraigUK buying a bunch of stuff from Jimmy Hart or something?

I do know about this cassette tape with some themes on it, including the one Russo used most famously, but so far only Elix Skippers and Jeff Jarrett's Cowboy theme have been leaked to the internet worldwide. Apparently someone found it and stole it from somewhere in WWE headquarters a few months after WCW was purchased and it was used for house shows or something.

Pretty sure this is the unused/alt version of "Vince Russo Theme". I don’t know if the actual two versions that Russo used were ever released/leaked.

Any WCW theme enthusiasts can correct me if I’m wrong.

I think it's the April 10th one? I'd have to dig around my DVD's to find that Nitro because I can't find it on YouTube. If I was wrong, sorry.

But I don't think it was ever used. A PPV theme perhaps.

Most of these are just random stock library tracks that were used for a random stock load of people in WCW.

Theres several of these tapes in the vault. Including 1 XWF which also would have their WCW reuses from the backend which didn't turn up on any of the others.

I watched a bit of the XWF out of curiosity and they are still trying to pass off 48th Highlanders - Scotland The Brave non medally version as a Jimmy Hart XWF theme like in the LOW games. :lol:
