UPROXX Reflects on WWF Forceable Entry, 12 Years Later…

WWF Forceable Entry review

Of course, one of the trademarks of professional wrestling since the 1980’s has been music, primarily entrance music for the wrestlers.  From the early days of the WWF Wrestling Album in 198_ to the digital singles released today, we wrestling fans have been able to enjoy pumping up and jamming out to these tunes.
