WWE: Wreckless Intent Debuts In the Top 10 Of the Billboard 200 Best-Selling Albums Chart
Mystery Continues As 'WWE Gold Ticket' Goes Unclaimed
New Collection Of WWE® Superstar Entrance Theme Music Features 15 Original Tracks By Saliva, P.O.D., Motorhead & Others Including First New Music from Three 6 Mafia Since Oscar Night
WWE: Wreckless Intent -- a compilation on which WWE Superstars' themes are performed by some of the biggest and hottest rock, alternative and hip-hop artists in music today -- has just debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 best-selling albums chart.
The Top 10 success of WWE: Wreckless Intent has led to speculation as to the whereabouts of the premium "WWE GOLD TICKET." Tucked at random into a single copy of the CD, the special "WWE GOLD TICKET" will entitle a lucky fan to attend WWE Summerslam in Boston, Massachusetts on August 20, 2006.
The songs on WWE: Wreckless Intent are comprised of WWE Superstars' entrance themes heard during WWE's weekly television shows -- "RAW," which can be seen every Monday night 'live' on the USA Network, and "Friday Night SmackDown," which can be seen every Friday night on the UPN Network. As well, there are monthly Pay-Per-View programs and specials throughout the year in which these themes can be heard on a worldwide basis. The highly anticipated album features the first new music released by the platinum-selling Three 6 Mafia since the celebrated hip-hop artists' historic Academy Award win for Best Original Song. The track, "Some Bodies Gonna Get It," was recorded in association with "World's Strongest Man," Mark Henry™.
Tracks on WWE: Wreckless Intent will be integrated into all aspects of World Wrestling Entertainment programming including syndicated television, Pay-Per-View, online initiatives, consumer products and live events including "RAW," and "Friday Night SmackDown" TV in the months leading up to the release and there after.
WWE: Wreckless Intent has been released in conjunction with the WrestleMania® 22 DVD.
Fans can celebrate the release of WWE: Wreckless Intent at a variety of WWE Superstar in-store events. And one of them might just walk away with the "WWE GOLD TICKET"!
