Longtime WWE Music Composer Jim Johnston Released From WWE

Longtime WWE Music Composer Jim Johnston Released From WWE

There were rumors floating around that longtime WWE music composer James Alan Johnston had parted ways from WWE. Bryan Alvarez was asked about it during Wrestling Observer Live and his co-host Mike Sempervive said that he spoke to somebody within WWE who told him that this is indeed the case.

Little is known right now about why exactly he was released but the rumor is that it was not mutually agreed upon and that his release was WWE's decision.

As many fans are aware, Johnston had been with WWE since the 1980's and composed many of WWE's most popular Superstar theme songs over the years. He made well-known songs for Superstars such as "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, The Undertaker, Kane, Triple H, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, D-Generation X, Randy Orton, Dave Batista, The Miz, Fandango, and countless others. Most recently, Johnston was responsible for Baron Corbin's new "I Bring the Darkness (End of Days)" theme song.

Johnston had taken a step back from composing Superstar entrance themes over the past five years or so and mostly concentrated on composing music for WWE Studios and the WWE Network. The group known as CFO$ have been making most of the Superstar entrance themes over the past few years, especially for the stars who have come up from NXT.
