METALLICA Song To Be Used By TRIPLE H During Tonight's 'WWE Wrestlemania XXVII'

According to Kevin Kellam at Pro Wrestling Examiner, professional wrestler Triple H will make his entrance to an undisclosed METALLICA song during tonight's (Sunday, April 3) WWE Wrestlemania XXVII match against The Undertaker at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia.

Triple H's regular entrance theme, "The Game", was recorded by MOTÖRHEAD. MOTÖRHEAD also performed additional theme songs "King Of Kings" and "Line In The Sand" for Triple H and his former stable, Evolution.

In a recent interview, Triple H talked about how "The Game" came about and how it's helped to form his wrestling identity. He said, "Eight years ago I was at a period of time with my career where I was moving up and had become a major star within the industry and I wanted to have new music that was more fitting to what I was doing. I wanted to have a certain vibe when I walked out. I wasn't the pristine pretty boy. I wasn't the nice guy anymore. I was rough and tumble. My face is all scarred up.

"When I'm out there, I'm kicking ass and hitting them with a sledgehammer and busting them open. That is my image. I felt like the sound of MOTÖRHEAD helped to convey that.

"The song 'The Game' was written by our music guy. Lem [MOTÖRHEAD's Lemmy] put his twist on it. The difference between how our studio did it and how Lem had did — it was a totally different song.

"The first time I heard it, I was like, Fuck yeah, that's me right there.'"
