#ThemeSongTuesday (11/24/15): The Lass Kicker

Despite Charlotte and Paige’s contract signing being the main event of RAW last week and their... okay match at Survivor Series last night, the WWE is still far from treating their main roster “Divas” properly. But once in a while, we do get our shining glimpses of a better future women’s division. Of course, the prime examples would be the "Four Horsewomen" of NXT: Sasha Banks, Charlotte, Bayley, and Becky Lynch. The fact that these women (sans Bayley, who’s still in NXT) can still put on great matches and make us care despite being terribly booked on RAW, only goes to show that nothing will get in the way of their path to change women’s wrestling for the better.

For this week’s #ThemeSongTuesday, let’s take a look at one-fourth of the Four Horsewomen—Becky Lynch.

The Irish Lass Kicker got her start back in 2002, learning the ropes of professional wrestling from Fergal Devitt, now more commonly known as Finn Balor. Under the name Rebecca Knox, she went on to wrestle for numerous promotions around Europe, North America, and Japan. Prior to the WWE, she would enter the ring to this:

Nope, I didn’t make a mistake. She really did show up to every match as Rebecca Knox to the tune of MC Hammer. I guess it was cool, in a strange ironic Irish-90’s-hip-hopper kind of way? Her in-ring persona then was sharper; sprak like a firecracker, and so the first song that came to mind was… U Can’t Touch This? Ugh. I’m done trying to make sense of it, let’s all just be glad that this is now what she enters to:

CFO$, thank you for Celtic Invasion. You can’t go wrong with those infectious gang vocals, the booming instrumentals, and the eventual BPM pick-up that gets you absolutely pumped to see whatever she’s about to be in. Hell, I could even see this theme working as a solid pop-rock track worthy of radio airplay. With the way they packaged Becky Lynch’s entire entrance, this song, the way she runs in—and even those silly steampunk goggles—makes it all feel so well put together.

P.S. I’d take the Celtic Invasion over the Celtic Warrior any day.
