Review: Russell Baillie

Wrestling is the new rock’n’roll? Well, it’s got albums (there were four volumes before this?), and for a product description of this one go directly to the sentence on the back cover which says: "Original entrance theme songs of the World Wrestling Federation Superstars you’ve heard on TV!"

Which means Motorhead playing The Game, a collection of metal and hip-hopped Rocky Theme mutant clones and, to finish, The Rock singing and rapping Pie with help from rapper Slick Rick. Yes, they may fake it in the ring but this is truly, truly brutal.
