WWE's NXT brand has long been a supporter of cutting edge heaviness, from the young wrestlers who define the brand to the music that accompanies the shows. In the past, they've tapped the likes of Code Orange, Cane Hill and Lzzy Hale to play their NXT Takeover pay-per-views. The brand has taken things to a new level with the announcement that Slipknot's latest banger "All Out Life" (from their as-yet-untitled new album) will be NXT's official theme song.
The news, which was revealed by WWE COO Triple H on Twitter (see below), arrived with a new music video highlighting the intense wrestling found on the show. Bodies go flying, fists are thrown, people are leaping off of cages, it's a grand time. It's not hard to see why the Slipknot track was chosen, the song's heaviness perfectly illustrates what these wrestlers do each and every night, and the video ends on various performers yelling along to the song's refrain of "We are not your kind."
