Words: Saam Das
Breaking my wrist trying to take a spectacular diving catch in a cricket match led to two main things: a) not being able to type much, and b) getting back into professional wrestling. Over the last few years, the predominant pro wrestling organisation in the world, WWE, have teamed up with production duo CFO$ and as you might discover from their theme for former TNA demi-god Bobby Roode, which is GLORIOUS. Listen to the Queen meets Muse meets Guns N Roses vibe below.
This isn't the first time we've mentioned the squared circle on FG - back in 2011, I wrote about Art Brut's euphemistic 'Unprofessional Wrestling'. And one of the most featured bands on this site, Fight Like Apes, even had a music video that was 90% wrestling, featuring former WWE superstar Scotty 2 Hotty.
As for 'Glorious Domination', it is already developing a reputation for being an all-time great wrestling theme tune. Largely thanks to its gospel x gang vocal opening that gallantly cries: "GLORIOUS! NO, I WON'T GIVE IN. I WON'T GIVE IN, TILL I'M VICTORIOUS. AND I WILL DEFEND. I WILL DEFEND!" The music is slightly over-the-top, complete with wanky guitar solos, but it fits perfectly for the larger-than-life world of sports entertainment.
Oh and in the last cricket match of the season, I actually managed to hang on to a diving catch. And not break my wrist again. Redemption, glorious redemption.
