Jim Johnston Composing Music For Ring oh Honor

Famed WWE composer Jim Johnston has written his first pro wrestling theme song outside of the auspices of World Wrestling Entertainment...for Ring of Honor, PWInsider.com can exclusively confirm.

Johnston has crafted a new theme song for Villain Enterprises' PCO. The song will debut at tomorrow's Death Before Dishonor PPV. PCO will be facing Kenny King on the PPV in the first round of a ROH Top Contenders Tournament that will see the winner challenge the ROH Champion (currently Matt Taven) at December's Final Battle PPV.

“It really brings the essence of PCO and adds another dimension to the immortality,” PCO said. “It reinforces that PCO is not human. Adding this piece of the puzzle on top of everything else, the success of The French-Canadian Frankenstein becomes limitless.”

Johnston worked as full-time composer for WWE for three decades, creating themes for The Rock, Steve Austin, Mankind and countless other iconic performers.

There is no word whether this will be the beginning of a larger relationship between Johnston and Ring of Honor, but obviously, the door is open.

ROH will be releasing an official press release about Johnston's PCO theme later today.

1:40 PM UPDATE: ROH has released the following

ICONIC COMPOSER JIM JOHNSTON CREATES NEW ENTRANCE THEME FOR PCO
Jim Johnston, the man responsible for composing the most iconic entrance themes in sports entertainment, has created new music for Ring of Honor star PCO. The theme will be unveiled at ROH’s Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view on Friday, Sept. 27.

Johnston worked for World Wrestling Entertainment for more than three decades, composing instantly recognizable entrance themes for the likes of Steve Austin, The Rock, DX, The Undertaker, Ultimate Warrior and countless others. PCO’s music is the first theme Johnston has written since leaving WWE two years ago.

“It’s been great fun to work on a new theme for PCO and Ring of Honor,” Johnston told ROHWrestling.com. “The energy there has been all positive, and it’s been my honor to hopefully make a small contribution to their continued success.”

PCO said he is thrilled with the music and is excited for everyone to hear it for the first time at Death Before Dishonor in Las Vegas.

“It really brings the essence of PCO and adds another dimension to the immortality,” PCO said. “It reinforces that PCO is not human. Adding this piece of the puzzle on top of everything else, the success of The French-Canadian Frankenstein becomes limitless.”

PCO will face Kenny King at Death Before Dishonor in the first round of the Final Battle No. 1 Contender Tournament.

That's how Jim Johnston talks about his themes, he says "essence" a lot. I actually thought that was a quote from Johnston, but now I see that it's a PCO quote... most likely taken shortly after he talked to Johnston lol...

He takes his work very seriously, although I always go back to those youtube videos about how often WWE has recycled themes at different tempos over the years and wonder how much of that Johnston had his hands in...
