Good thing he's still got the Braves gig.

Seph 11-30-2017 03:11 PM

So new music incoming?

KIRA 11-30-2017 03:31 PM

If this is true there are some dark days ahead if all we have left is CFO$

Destor 11-30-2017 03:37 PM

Seems like a piece of history.

I wonder what happened. "Fired" sounds harsh.

Danny Electric 11-30-2017 04:27 PM

Got to admit I didn't think he was still working for them , what themes has he done lately. Thought most the recent ones had been done by CFO$.

Emperor Smeat 11-30-2017 04:42 PM

Makes some sense considering his output declined a lot in recent years and CFO$ can crank out themes faster than Johnston which WWE needs because of NXT.

Anybody Thrilla 11-30-2017 04:48 PM

You'd think they'd find some job for a tenured guy like that. Just seems like something happened.

Emperor Smeat 11-30-2017 05:04 PM

Similar thing happened with their former longtime timekeeper who got abruptly released the last time WWE did a big batch of cuts.

The guy was there for around 30 years and got rewarded by getting thrown in the pile with the other talents and employees released at the time.

Anybody Thrilla 11-30-2017 05:06 PM

Fuck you, Slik. That definitely said "fired" and not "released" earlier. That doesn't sound as bad.

Anybody Thrilla 11-30-2017 05:06 PM

Oh wait, YOU said fired. Yeah, fuck you.

Conspiracy Victim Vito 11-30-2017 05:07 PM

Dude should be going into the HOF.

I think his last theme was Baron Corbin's current theme. (which is a shame)

Shisen Kopf 11-30-2017 05:27 PM

Wonder if they made him compose a theme song for his firing before he was let go?

They just played this as he walked out the door

Emma, Corbin and Jinder were the last few, so he certainly wasn't knocking it out of the park.

Fired, Released, Wished Well in Future Endeavors, blah blah blah

Fignuts 11-30-2017 08:28 PM

Didn't he make some really terrible theme recently? Like Emma's new theme that she had for about two weeks before the one she has now. Maybe his magic is gone.

I dunno, CFO$ has a few themes that loop too quickly, but for the most part I really like the majority of his stuff.

#BROKEN Hasney 12-01-2017 03:11 AM

EMMA HAS NO THEME NOW YOU INSENSITIVE PRICK

Anybody Thrilla 12-01-2017 03:14 AM

I'm not gonna make this all about Emma again, but that Jinder Mahal theme is really good.

Cool King 12-01-2017 04:16 PM

It actually is.

The Dastardly One 12-01-2017 04:47 PM

Fignuts is the Lio Rush of tpww

Emperor Smeat 12-01-2017 05:07 PM

Nothing definitive yet from the usual sheet sources about Johnston's status but the source of this news updated their claim with more info yesterday.

The source is still really sketchy at best but they are claiming Johnston's departure is entirely CFO$'s fault and it was a deliberate power play by CFO$ to get rid of Johnston in order to have total control over the direction of WWE's music. Claimed CFO$ wants to replace all of Johnston's current themes with their own versions.

Fignuts 12-01-2017 05:51 PM

What are Johnston's themes?

Fignuts 12-01-2017 05:52 PM

Also, that sounds pretty skeezy on CFO$'s part, but ya know, "two sides" and all that.

He's done a lot more but the list only tracks the themes he's made since WWE went the iTunes route for musical releases.

Fignuts 12-01-2017 07:13 PM

I like Jinder and and Corbin's new themes, but besides that, I don't see anything recent thats noteworthy.

Anybody Thrilla 12-01-2017 07:17 PM

Figured something was up.

Triple A 12-01-2017 07:38 PM

meltzer says it's probably true

While WWE has not confirmed this, those close to the situation have confirmed stories that Jim Johnston, the longtime WWE musical composer, was released after his contract expired.

Noid 12-02-2017 08:07 PM

I don't imagine it's a hostile release. The dude has been there forever and is probably looking to move in a different direction with his life. He should go into the Hall of Fame.

Blue Demon 12-02-2017 10:42 PM

Nothing has been confirmed by WWE at this point, as far as I could find. "Fired" may be harsh, but it seems they just didn't renew his contract.

yup. his last theme was Barons current theme. And that theme is fucking epic. 30 minute version is on my gym playlist.

The Midnight Gertner 12-03-2017 12:00 AM

All the people complaining about Jim Johnston being let go so young up and comers with fresh ideas who have been doing great can have their moments are the same ones bitching about Vince being in control and not stepping aside. There's absolutely no difference.

Conspiracy Victim Vito 12-03-2017 01:16 AM

Jim Johnston doesn't have the final say over everything that makes it to TV.

Conspiracy Victim Vito 12-03-2017 01:19 AM

One thing I appreciated about Johnston was that he'd make full-length songs out of a lot of his themes. CFO$ songs are like 60 seconds that just loop over and over.

SlickyTrickyDamon 12-03-2017 02:53 AM

Yeah but CFO makes songs the fans can chant along with. They are it right now.

How many entrances are over 1:30?

Juan 12-03-2017 04:50 AM

CFO$ aren’t bad, but imo they haven’t made a really “iconic” theme yet. Their themes mostly fit the superstar, but none of them have really blown me away. I guess time will tell if any of them become “iconic”
