Hope everything shakes out for the best in whatever's going on, Chris.

As for the episode, I had never heard Nakamura's pre-Subconscious theme but it is pretty meh in comparison. The moment I heard Subconscious on the podcast, I was overwhelmed with a weird sense of nostalgia (weird because it's nostalgia from like, 2015, which is two years, not even a decade ago). I always say King of Strong Style/Swagsuke entrance is good enough to hook anybody with a pulse within 30 seconds, and if that doesn't work for you, the following match will probably will you over in two mins (even if Nakamura is taking the night off, his mannerisms usually capture people's imaginations). It just gets you so hyped up to see this guy and he really perfected the whole gimmick, from look to entrance to mannerisms to moveset.

I like the WWE themes but since they don't have dozens of fond memories attached to hearing them, they're just themes to me.
