Backstage News on WWE’s Keith Lee Theme Change


As noted, there has been a lot of negative talk about how WWE changed Keith Lee’s theme song for his debut on last night’s post-SummerSlam edition of RAW.Word is now that Lee has approved the theme change, according to Fightful Select. However, WWE has also urged talent to ditch their CFO $ themed songs as of late.

WWE parted ways with CFO $ some time ago, and the producers reportedly signed a “terrible” deal with their publisher that sees the publisher getting half of all royalties. WWE doesn’t have the same publishing deal with the band as they did with legendary songwriter Jim Johnston, which is why there have been so many changes in WWE music over the past year.

It was also noted that some wrestlers hated the new music presented to them as potential replacements, so much so that they categorically rejected the changes.

It is not yet known whether WWE will consider a change to Lee’s theme song due to the large number of negative comments.

Lee just lost WWE NXT Headline by Karrion Kross on “Takeover: XXX” Saturday night. He will face Randy Orton next Sunday in WWE Refund pay per view.
