ELDON - JULY 8: Ty Dalton puts Teddy DiBiase Jr. in a headlock during his first professional fight for the World League Wrestling on July 8, 2006 in Eldon, Missouri. They trained at the Harley Race Wrestling Academy. Harley Race's legendary wrestling career spanned nearly four decades. During that time Race won eight NWA World Championships, managed two wrestlers to the WCW World Championship and was involved in operating the NWA territories in Kansas City and St. Louis. Mike and Teddy DiBiase Jr. are the sons of world famous Ted DiBiase, better known as The Million Dollar Man in the wrestling world. (Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)

The Smashing Pumpkins Billy Corgan owns the NWA wrestling promotion.  Two of his performers, like may other wrestlers, live here in Tampa.

Bryan Idol and Natalia Markova were flying back from a taping in Nashville and when they landed in Tampa, Natalia couldn’t find her purse.  Lucky for her, she had her air pods in her purse, so she used Apple’s “Find My” app.

Unfortunately for the purse thief, they found the air pods.  They tracked them down to a Pinellas Park Walmart, found the culprit, and beat his ass.  [Source: New York Post]

8 Iconic '80s Wrestling Themes

  • Hulk Hogan

    Performed and co-written by Rick Derringer, he told Rolling Stone, “It’s become one of the biggest records I’ve ever made…and I’m the guy who did “Hang On Sloopy” and “Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo.” (Well…he’s not wrong.)

  • Demolition

    Derringer strikes again! His work with the WWF also included this hard rock tag team theme classic.

  • Jake “The Snake” Roberts

    The synth guitar is so menacing, Roberts’ theme didn’t need lyrics.

  • “Macho Man” Randy Savage

    Savage’s use of “Pomp & Circumstance” is so iconic that high school graduates call it the “Macho Man March” instead of the “The Graduation March.”  (Okay…they don’t, BUT THEY SHOULD!)

  • Mr. Perfect

    The only thing more perfect than the late Curt Hennig is this theme.

  • “Rowdy” Roddy Piper

    Oh, Hot Rod…you’re just so incredibly missed.

  • “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase

    The “Money” hook. That laugh. You can’t put a price on the brilliance of this theme.

  • The Fabulous Freebirds

    Last, but certainly not least:  No “best ’80s wrestling theme” list would be complete without “Badstreet U.S.A.”  The Freebirds were the first wrestlers to have original entrance music, so without them and the vocal stylings of Michael “P.S.” Hayes, this entire list wouldn’t be possible.
