YouTube version of the FTR new theme. It’s an interesting mix of The Chase, the Midnights’ NWA/WCW unlicensed rip-off. And oddly works for a soundtrack for an 80s drug cartel movie or TV show. I could totally picture a coked out Tony Montana dancing to this in some disco trying to hit on Elvira Hancock.

Yeah, agreed, this theme is fire. Very GTA Vice City. Gonna miss them using the Pinnacle's Horsemen ripoff though. I've been whistling that one non stop since it debuted.

I love all of these possibilities, and would be happy with any of them, but should they land Kevin Steen, my prediction is that the real "bidding war" story will be told between a split group of Kenny/Good Bros and Cole/Bucks

Before it gets there, I’m actually curious to see how they handle Hangman Page (assuming he returns in the near future) and Adam Cole—since Cole obviously wasn’t a part of Hangman’s falling out with them.

Same here! Not sure if you watch BTE, but they did a quick reference to it where Cole was like "I'm gonna go find Hangman!" and Kenny/Bucks were like "Uhhhh, maybe don't do that..." Really curious to see how that's handled on TV.

I forget the Casino Ladder Match has individual entrances.

Unless the match ends before the Joker comes out, I think this gimmick match might be a little too out there.

They don't do the Casino Battle Royal timed entrances in this. It's just a ladder match. All 5 dudes enter before the match starts. It's just there's one surprise entrant. Which was Ethan Page last time they did this. And Brian Cage before him. Dare they go Cage, Page, Page as the jokers? lol

It’s definitely been individual entrances every two minutes in the past, which means the match can end before everyone’s in the match.

That's what Tony Khan said on Busted Open. That it's timed intervals, but it can end at any time.

He also said they'd be announcing the entrants ahead of time, so presumably either tonight, or on Elevation/Dark before Dynamite next week.

That’s how I remember it working. Two guys start, and then you get other people entering. 

It’s my least favorite match gimmick they’ve had. I mean I already don’t like multi person ladder matches, just adding a rumble gimmick to it is worse.

Hopefully this one being in front of a crowd gives the performers motivation, and improves it.

To be fair, the Midnight’s rip-off is actually way better than the original. They should’ve just completely re-did the rip-off. But then who owns it? I’ve never heard a version of it that wasn’t pulled from TV.

The rip-off is great in its own way, but the opinion that it's actually better than The Chase is so white it just booked a spa weekend.

If that’s the case, then chop me up, and build White House II in DC.

I love the knock off. It’s so clean, and catchy.

Agreed. Loving this Midnights-esque theme, but thought the Pinnacle music was perfect for FTR's Arn & Tully vibe.

That was a pretty fun episode of Elevation.  I did especially like that while Spears is a heel he had to show the Brodie love with the shirt and pose at the beginning.  It was a nice moment that the crowd appreciated then once Wardlow came in it was back to the heeling.  Good stuff.

 

Spoiler

Elevation is a fitting name.
