Wrestling is Awesome XXXIV: BroMans Music

Posted on November 4, 2013


I’m not going to even pretend that I’ve ever really enjoyed Robbie E. When he made his debut in TNA with Becky Bayless in tow, I was amongst those who saw him as nothing more than an attempt by TNA to cynically cash in on the success of Jersey Shore and the relative success of Zack Ryder. Robbie was Ryder turned up to ten, as irritating as they come. And what about Jesse? Well, he made his debut as Tara’s celebrity boyfriend and sort of just stood around and flexed. They’ve since been put together as a tag team called Bromans, which happened just as I decided to stop watching the product because of their atrocious working conditions. Either way, I couldn’t care.

I decided to watch Bound for Glory last week, as it is their biggest show of the year. It was also setting up to be kinda nice to drop in on the product, to see where they are. Well, the show itself was still completely mediocre, but one thing stood out that wasn’t Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian. Believe it or not, because I’m struggling to, but that thing was Bromans.

From the moment they came out with quite possibly the most ridiculous entrance music I have ever heard, my opinion had changed. For some reason, current Mr Olympia Phil Heath was there. Now, the TNA crowd didn’t seem to care, but as someone who grew up in a house where bodybuilding was a real thing, this was actually a bit of a mark out moment for me. Both Robbie and Jesse are still sort of nothing much in the ring, but they don’t need to be. They are obnoxious, they take a beating and then they cheat to win. It worked, it works and it should continue to work. Heck, they even celebrated backstage with goggles and protein shakes. It’s a beautiful thing.

But their music, wow. I can’t get enough of it. I know its the worst thing I’ve ever heard, but there is something strangely magnetic about it. In three days I’ll despise it, but right now it is still all types of wonderful. Goofy as shit.
