Fandangoing the newest craze

Published Apr. 12, 2013 1:00 a.m. ET

The newest viral music/video craze has come from an unlikely spot and less likely person.

Fandangoing and Fandango are taking an international hold and they don't plan on letting go.

So who or what are they?

Fandango is a wrestler with WWE, a new one at that. His "gimmick" is one of a dancer. And he took it one step further — sorry — by refusing to wrestle or even enter the ring unless his name was pronounced correctly.


The music, written by longtime WWE composer Jim Johnston, has gone feverish — as in white hot.

The fans in Britain are so behind the entrance theme that they have driven it up the iTunes charts — going as high as No. 11 — in hopes of getting regular radio airplay.

So, what does they catchy tune sounds like? Have a listen.


The craze has even hit the NFL as the Houston Texans cheerleaders are getting in on the action.

The music took over the end of Monday's RAW program as the fans' sing-along even started to distract the wrestlers in the ring toward the end of the show.

And for those WWE fans who couldn't get enough, the music didn't stop after RAW. A New Jersey Transit train car turned into a Fandango concert of sorts. Only in the WWE.
