Shinsuke Nakamura’s theme hits top spot on iTunes charts


Shinsuke Nakamura was a big hit at NXT Takeover: Dallas from the moment his new theme song kicked in.

That theme song, titled The Rising Sun, has stormed to the top of iTunes charts, and is currently #1 in the Soundtrack category on the popular Apple store. Nakamura’s theme knocked off the song Earned It from Fifty Shades of Grey to earn the top spot.

The song was produced by the duo known as CFO$ – John Alicastro and Mike Lauri. They have been working with WWE for the past couple of years writing theme songs for Superstars and soundtracks for WWE Network shows.

Other CFO$-produced themes on the iTunes charts include the AJ Styles’ Phenomenal, Sasha Banks’ Sky’s The Limit, and SAWFT Is A Sin, the theme of Enzo Amore and Colin Cassidy.
