I had a hard time debating about this and even though I want to support Chris Spradlin aka Kassius Ohno, I don't know if this would be right. If you are aware of his entrance music name, "Hero's Welcome" that is performed by Cody B. Ware, you feel like this is cool? To me, this is adding insult to injury. I don't know who is to blame for this, but, if you think this is cool, well, you don't know much of him, Chris. I am sure that I can be back up by true fans of the 18 year wrestler and if they are truly are, they know too that it's an insult to injury.
If you know that Chris using that name, "Hero's Welcome" as a signature maneuver in his time in the independent scene as what he is know by, Chris Hero. I know that Chris has many songs that he use for his entrance to his wrestling matches, like if he was wrestling in Pro Wrestling NOAH, he would use, "Holding out for a Hero" by Bonnie Tyler, which it was used badly for any commercial. Everytime I hear it, it makes me think of Chris. However, every wrestling fan who attend the shows would know when Chris comes out to the song that really means him, "Chris is Awesome" by the late Viro the Virus. When that music is starting, you know he's coming to the ring.
However, I have no problem towards Cody B. Ware, because after all, the man is responsible for Chris and his former student and tag partner, Claudio Castagnoli, aka Cesaro, entrance music, "K.O.W. (Kings)", which it's the entrance music for them with Sara Del Ray and Shane Hagadorn, Kings of Wrestling, during their time in Ring of Honor.
Believe me on this, if you tell me that you're a fan of Kassius Ohno and Cesaro and say, I'm nuts, well, you don't know Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli, because that's who I see in my eyes, even though Claudio tagging with Sheamus is fine with me, trying to be the oddest tag team since Matt Hardy and MVP. As for Chris, I don't know what to say. Actually, I wish he and Kevin Steen were not being the butt of the jokes every twitter user who are considering fans, because it's really mean.
I am sure somewhere, Triple H is shaking his head, regretting the choice of allowing Chris to be called Kassius Ohno again. He should take note from TNA Wrestling, when they brought back Austin Aries six years ago. They let him wrestle to the name he has. Ever since, he got popular, but, still being a jerk...okay, that's another blog entry for another day.
Also, Chris is bring his basketball theme ring gear is getting to me. I know he has two so far, the Boston Celtics green, white, and yellow ring gear that he has seen wearing since he debut that over in Pro Wrestling NOAH or was it somewhere else? Also, the Team USA white, red, and blue ring gear, which you will see in an upcoming episode or two of WWE NXT. I don't know how many more he will be wearing, but, I hope he will be wearing his Duke University one soon. After all, he needs it to bring luck to the men's basketball team.
What? Can I say something else too?
Okay, by the way, if you are on YouTube, I dare you to search for Cody B. Ware. Because the first thing that I see when I do, you will see Chris in the thumbnail of the first video. If you would, click it and then give it a thumbs down.
If you want to do some thumbs up on YouTube, check out these videos that Chris has used for his entrance music:
Bonnie Tyler's Holding out for a Hero (Chris use this song when he was in NOAH)
Viro the Virus' Chris is Awesome (Hero's entrance video that is used in promotions that have video screens)
Cody B. Ware's K.O.W. (Kings) The official Kings of Wrestling entrance music.
I know I am crazy talking about the past, but, what I know, this is an act of war of what WWE has done.
