It would seem like the obvious choice, but unfortunately, none of the 32 first-round draft picks opted for Ultimate Warrior’s theme song. Not that it would’ve mattered, though. No one could hear any of the walk-up songs that everyone was so excited for anyway. So, let’s go through them here instead. And just for extra kicks, we’ll throw in a sweet GIF of the world’s newly-minted potential stars.
