MVP’s theme song during the 2000s was Silkk the Shocker’s “I’m Comin’,” and the WWE star says he needed time to come around to it. MVP spoke to (Fightful for a new interview and talked about how he didn’t like the song at first, but he eventually became a fan.

“Not really,” he said about if he liked the song at first. “As I’ve said many times, Silkk the Shocker theme, I didn’t like it at first. I grew to like it in time. I was in the arena one afternoon and Vince called me over, had them play it. ‘This is gonna be your music.’ I remember when they were playing it, Vince was doing his awkward dance to it. I was like, ‘Vince, if you like it, I love it.’”

He continued, “At the time I was doing the Jim Jones balling, I’m a big fan of New York hip hop, I wanted something a little more boom-bap. It’s a great song. It became identified with me. I didn’t really have any say in it at all. It was just, ‘Here’s your music,’ ‘Oh, okay. Cool.’”
