Production[edit]

  • Chris Jericho and Lilian Garcia were the only two superstars with an established music career before this album was released. However, John Cena has since released his debut album You Can't See Me with his cousin Tha Trademarc, Rey Mysterio performed the original version of his second WWE entrance theme "Booyaka 619", and Lita has since formed a band called The Luchagors.
  • Mysterio's song "Crossing Borders, was given a music video, which was shown on an episode of SmackDown!.
  • Lita made her singing debut on this album, despite being in a band as a bassist before wrestling.
  • Eddie and Chavo Guerrero claimed that when Jim Johnston called about them singing on the album, the first thing they said was, "Umm..sure but, we suck."[citation needed]
  • Bubba Ray Dudley showcased his piano playing talent on the additional DVD, later stating (perhaps facetiously) that his tag team partner D-Von had an amazing Michael Jackson impersonation.
  • The song that Jim Johnston plays to Stone Cold in "Where's the Beer?" was used by Sable in her bikini contest with Torrie Wilson.
