WWE Wreckless Intent is a compilation album released by WWE on May 23, 2006. The album is the sequel to the previously released WWF Forceable Entry, and like its predecessor it featured rock and metal artists performing versions of the wrestlers' entrance themes. A noted change with this album compared to the Forceable Entry album is the incorporation of rap and hip-hop artists (similar to the format used on the WWF Aggression album) doing versions of entrance themes as well as providing additional original tracks.

Production[edit]

Two working titles for the album were Forceable Entry 2 and Wreckless.[1][2]

Tego Calderón, Avenged Sevenfold, John Cena, and Chunk were at one point mentioned to be artists featured on the album, but did not make it onto the final track listing.[3][4][5] Disturbed was originally approached for making a new theme for Triple H, but Motörhead made the final cut.[6]

Avenged Sevenfold recorded a cover of Pantera's "Walk" for the album, but it was cut and later released on the Kerrang! compilation.

The song "Rise Up 2006!" performed by former Drowning Pool lead singer Ryan McCombs is a remake of "Rise Up!", performed by Jason "Gong" Jones and featured on the WWE ThemeAddict: The Music, Vol. 6 album.

The album was originally slated for a January release, but due to heavy time constraints, the release date was pushed back to May. The first few hundred people who pre-ordered the album on sonymusicstore.com got a free booklet autographed, as well as a WWE ball keychain. At WWEShop.com, a free signed John Cena trading card was given for each copy of the album.

Reception[edit]

The album debuted in the Billboard 200 at #8.[10]

Notes[edit]

  • Although "I'm Comin'" by Silkk the Shocker and "This Fire Burns" by Killswitch Engage are not attributed to a superstar on the album, they have since been used by Montel Vontavious Porter and CM Punk, respectively. Randy Orton also briefly used a modified version of "This Fire Burns" as his theme, along with it being the theme for Pay-Per-View event Judgment Day in 2006. It is believed that "I'm Comin'" was originally meant for The Boogeyman.
  • "Holla" by Desiree Jackson was originally attributed to Candice Michelle, and then later used by Kelly Kelly. "With Legs Like That" by Zebrahead was originally intended for Stacy Keibler, however the track was never given to her due to her departure from the WWE. It was then relocated to Maria. Since Torrie Wilson's retirement, Tiffany used "A Girl Like That" as her theme song.
  • "Deadly Game" by Theory of a Deadman was a cover version of the original song for the event Survivor Series in 1998. The original version can be found on WWE Anthology on its "Attitude Era" disc.
  • "Quien Soy Yo (Who I Am)" was never used on a WWE broadcast.
