FORMER WWE composer Jim Johnston has claimed he wrote Vince McMahon's entrance song out of anger at the billionaire.
The 62-year-old defined the sound of WWE for 30 years as he sorted the theme music for The Rock, Stone Cold and The Undertaker.
Johnston – who was released back in 2017 – also penned the track that became synonymous with the company's illustrious chairman.
But the American has now revealed the origins behind the iconic 'No Chance in Hell' theme that McMahon has used for over 20 years.
While speaking on the Unskripted Podcast, as reported by Ringside News, Johnston claimed he was angry at the 75-year-old for bullying him.

He said: “I consider still to this day, Vince, a friend. But like all friends, there were times when I was mad at him and he was mad at me.
“And, when I had to write that, I was mad at him, because he was being his bully self, I forgot the exact circumstances, and I was just angry.
“Maybe, more disappointed. Because I felt like, Wow, you’re really fortunate and you’ve been fabulously successful, you really don’t need to be that much of a bully. Can’t you loosen up a little bit?
“And it ended up being, I don’t know, God works in mysterious ways, and it just ended up being a perfect thing because I wrote that theme from the standpoint… it doesn’t feel like it’s been written from anger, feels like it’s just storytelling.
“As is often the case, that’s what it felt like to me at the time, and then when I looked back at it, I realized it’s like an entry out of my diary.
“It’s like I’m telling the world, “No chance, that’s what you’ve got.””
Elsewhere, SunSport previously reported that has revealed that McMahon was one of the first to congratulate Paul Wight after he joined AEW.
