WWE Wreckless Intent

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. This also marks as one of the last WWE albums being released by Columbia Records.

Production

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.
