Sounds of the Squared Circle: The May PPV's

Round 2 of the Sounds of the Squared Circle countdown brings us to the May PPV's...being Judgment Day and Over the Limit! Judgment Day was a different PPV, as from 2003 to 2005, production themes were used as official themes. Which means there was a huge gap from "Broken" (by 12 Stones) in 2002 to "This Fire Burns" (by Killswitch Engage) in 2006. But some good songs have come from Judgment Day and Over the Limit have been on point since its debut in 2010. Let's check them out!

Judgment Day 2002
Gaylord Entertainment Center, Nashville, TN
Theme: "Broken" by 12 Stones

Rating: 8 of 10
I really love this theme, it really jelled with the new direction "Ruthless Aggression", and worked flawlessly with the theme of the PPV.

Judgment Day 2006
US Airways Center, Phoenix, AZ
Theme: "This Fire Burns" by Killswitch Engage

Rating: 8 of 10
Ok, this screams...Judgment Day! And its CM Punk's first theme in WWE?! Case closed.

Judgment Day 2007
Scottrade Center, St. Louis, MO
Theme: "I Don't Wanna Stop" by Ozzy Osbourne

Rating: 6 of 10
It's a good song and all, but I mean, does it really say Judgment Day to you?

Judgment Day 2008
Qwest Center, Omaha, NE
Theme: "Take it All" by Zididada

Rating: 2 of 10
Who in the F&%# decided it was a good idea to make this a theme more suited for the Great American Bash or something, a theme on Judgment Day?! What are they on? Remember kids, "Crack is whack!"

Judgment Day 2009
Allstate Arena, Rosemont (Chicago), IL
Theme: "Rescue Me" by Buckcherry

Rating: 5 of 10
It's better than that Zididada BS last year...

Over The Limit 2010
Joe Louis Arena, Detroit, MI
Theme: "Crash" by Fit For Rivals

Rating: 7.5

Pretty Good, better than most themes...

Over The Limit 2011
KeyArena, Seattle, WA
Theme: "Help Is On The Way" by Rise Against

Rating: 7.5
See previous theme.

Over The Limit 2012
PNC Arena at NC State University, Raleigh, NC
Theme: "War of Change" by Thousand Foot Krutch

Rating: 10 out 10
I honestly don't why, but this was the absolute perfect theme for this PPV, and WWE Music is on a roll in 2012, Royal Rumble (Dark Horses), Extreme Rules (Adrenaline) and now this has 3 of 4 (excluding 'Mania) good themes to start 2012.

Alright, May's countdown is up, but its June 2, so after No Way Out, we will have your June edition of the "Sounds of the Squared Circle", and this one will be a douzee with King of the Ring, Bad Blood, Vengeance (I think), the Great American Bash (I think), One Night Stand, Extreme Rules, and I probably missed a couple too. But until then, like the Facebook!

And you just got slammed!...
