– The band ‘Brand New Sin’ have been appointed to record a new theme song for the Big Show for the upcoming Forceable Entry 2 album which will be released early next year according to MTV. The band went to Stamford, CT., at the WWE Headquarters to record the piece and then last week met the Big Show backstage at RAW. “To see someone who’s 7’2″, 520 pounds, I mean, it sounds big, but you cannot fathom it until the guy comes walking towards you,” the band’s leading man said. “I’m 5’10”, 230 pounds. I’m not a small guy. Our drummer’s 6’3″, we’re not a band of skinny little dudes. But we looked like little kids hanging out with him.”
