Should AEW hire Jim Johnston?

AEW so far has managed to build a great product in such a short period of time, but when I’m watching their shows one thing that really bugs me is the wrestlers entrance music...

None of the songs are really catchy or memorable. Other than Jericho and perhaps Cody, all the others just seem like generic WCW guitar riffs. Even Kenny Omega’s song is a little bland to me.

If AEW signed on Jim Johnston, they could get him to compose some amazing songs for guys like Moxley and Omega. Songs with lyrics and their own identity, that are instantly recognisable the second they blast through the speakers.

You could name any WWE wrestler to me from the last 20 years, and I could instantly identify their entrance music for 99% of them. With AEW? Not so much.

So what do you guys think? And who could do with new entrance music the most?

I don't see why not, as WWE doesn't employ him anymore.  As far as who, Ill defer to those more knowledgeable than me about the entrance music.  Moxley and Omega would be a great place to start.

Mikey Ruckus is a current contributor for AEW's music. Give him a chance before dismissing him. As a musician myself, I think Mikey has great potential. Will he ever be as great as Jim Johnston? Time will tell.

Would be an interesting move, I'm sure he doesn't come cheap though.

AEW has some catchy songs, I'm not overly against their music. I like Cody's theme and Lucha theme.

I wish they would work on their backstage audio, always seems a little off or low to me.

Jim knows wrestling music. It can't be a bad thing. Just sticking popular bands to wrestlers sometimes has an awful fit.

I can't see anything wrong with Jim working Mikey perhaps.

Re: Should AEW hire Jim Johnston?

yeah definitely AEW should hire some young talent who take forward company after Veterans like Jericho and Cody retire from in-ring action.
