Default When did entrance music start being used in ringwalks?

Nice trivia question would be the first champion who used it, and the song....

I'll take your word for it. I don't know the answer. I know it was used for a really long time in pro wresting. I would have thought boxers would've picked it up in the 60s.

Good question. Can you imagine ring walks without music? Bloody terrible.

I really think it began post-Rocky '76-'77. My God, it seemed like everyone was playing the Rocky theme everytime someone got in the ring.
