Intimidating intro songs
I play music that gets me calmed down and ready to go. When I step out on the mat, I hear it and it gets my mind going, Dziewa said. Its a personal choice, said Dziewa, noting he likes Telfords entrance music. Tony Ramos, who has made a habit of igniting the Iowa crowd during an unbeaten record at CHA so far, sends a message to anyone listening.
He has had Run This Town by Jay-Z, featuring Rihanna all four years, complementing his intimidating stare down from center mat.
Its something right away they out a face or image to it, 133-pound NCAA finalist Ramos said. Nick Moore received compliments on social media for picking Flower by Moby.
He heard it during a workout and the more it played the more it grew on him. There have been songs that have raised eyebrows with fans, teammates and probably some opponents.
UFC fighters use Takanashi’s classic today, and it still gets fans pumped for great events.
He is also still 'in the hood' and waiting to escape the same council estates that produced Steven Gerrard and Everton's right back Vladimir Putin ringer, Tony Hibbert.
He also shares a name with the hunter from Jurassic Park who goes "clever girl" and then gets eaten by Velociraptors.
I heard it like 10 times and I just liked it, Moore said. The intensity, passionate and tough nature of the sport didnt seem to fit with the pick of former Hawkeye All-American Grant Gambrall, who graduated after last season. That song played for a good 15 seconds before he walked out on the mat. This years award for oddest choice goes to sophomore 149-pounder Brody Grothus. He has always had fun with music choices, dating back to his time as a multi-sport athlete at Davenport Assumption.
Gambrall came out to the oldie, Lions Sleeps Tonight. Grothus consulted his brother, Bryon, who is a former Coe All-American, and Roar was the response. If Katy Perry is going to get him going then keep it with Katy Perry. The focus on the opponent drowns out the music, especially at this level of competition.Iowa's Tony Ramos celebrates his win over Penn State's Jimmy Gulibon during their 133 lbs.
