Jim Johnston: The man behind WWE's legendary theme songs, why he's not in the Hall of Fame, thoughts on AEW

Jim Johnston is a music composer who worked as the music producer for WWE from 1985 – 2017. He is the man responsible for the legendary theme songs for Stone Cold Steve Austin, Triple H, Mick Foley, Degeneration X, The Undertaker, Vince McMahon, Shane McMahon, Randy Orton, and countless others. During the course of his 32-year career with WWE, he composed more than 10,000 pieces of music before he was released in 2017. Jim joins Chris Van Vliet from his studio in Greenwich, CT where he talks about how he started working for WWE, his process behind creating music, some of his favorite themes, why he doesn’t think he will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and he ends the interview with a beautiful piano rendition of The Undertaker’s theme song. This is truly one of my favorite conversations ever!
