WWE + Entrance Themes + Creativity = A Fun Little Project

Process:

I looked for the songs that seem to get the biggest pops when played or ones that went with wrestlers that would be fun to design for. Then I listened to their songs and saw some of their entrances.

Once I did that, I found images to work with and supporting imagery that fit each idea I had for either their personality or the music style.

After that, I began building the art in Photoshop and Illustrator. I tried to study art styles that worked with the music theme. For example, with Aleister Black (Tommy End), I wanted something that fit his darker in-ring personality and real life love of heavy music. Black metal typography treatment and look seemed to work well. With AJ Styles and The Usos, I went with something that matched the style of music that they used.

End Result:
