New, comments

Wanna help a podcaster pick out entrance theme music for his (not expected to be) illustrious pro wrestling career?

Kevin Held here. You know me as the loud, foul-mouthed braggart who occasionally joins Ralph, Dave and Andrew for weekly Saints podcasts.

As the (checks records) dozens upon dozens of you listening already know, I've started to fill a lot of my free time training to become a pro wrestler. Yes, I was of sound mind (ed. note: DEBATABLE) when I made this decision. And yes, I am an adult (ed. note: ALSO DEBATABLE). This is just one of those things that stuck with me from my youth and it's the itch that needs to be scratched, so-to-speak.

But enough about me, here's where the brain trust that is CSC nation comes in! I want you guys to help me pick out my entrance song. During the off-season, Ralph, Dave and Andrew have lent a hand in whittling down a list of 64 potentials to just 16 songs. Kinda like March Madness. Yes, this is what happens when there's little to no football to talk about. But with the regular season fast approaching, I want to ask you to please vote in a series of polls that will be posted here in the upcoming weeks to help me pick a surefire hit.

All 16 remaining songs are bracketed below. I'm going to run a series of posts, each containing a poll with the two songs in a specific bracket. The polls will be kept open for 48 hours. Next week, we'll have the winners and move on to the next round, and so on until I've got my entrance theme.

And this will be my music. This is not a bait and switch. Just know going in that I'm going to be a bad guy. Other than that, choose a song for whatever reason you like. It's your call.

I've attached links to every song on this list so you give them a listen and make an informed decision. HAVE AT IT.
