NEW YORK (Billboard) – Peter Gabriel’s “Big Time” has become the official theme of World Wrestling Entertainment’s upcoming “WrestleMania 22,” nearly 20 years after the song hit the top 10 in the United States.
The tune is heard in TV and online spots for the annual live and pay-per-view extravaganza. The ads began airing earlier this month and will continue through April 2, when “WrestleMania 22” touches down at the Allstate Arena in Chicago.
