WWE pays tribute to Motorhead’s Lemmy on Raw

WWE paid tribute to the legendary Motörhead singer Lemmy Kilmister on Raw after he passed away at the age of 70 following a short bout with cancer.

Michael Cole called Lemmy a longtime member of the WWE family and was an important person to everything they did from an entertainment standpoint over a number of years.

Motörhead played an instrumental part in WWE music-wise, recording popular theme songs The Game and King of Kings for Triple H as well as Line In The Sand for Evolution. Lemmy was a big friend of Triple H and some of his songs were also used as theme songs for several WWE pay-per-views and special events, including the latest NXT Takeover: London which used the ‘Ace of Spades’ song. The group also performed at WrestleMania 21.

“One life, lived your way, from the beginning, till the end. See you down the road my friend… Thank you for the gift of your sound,” tweeted Triple H.
