ARSENAL shocked viewers on Thursday night when their players emerged to Kurt Angle’s WWE entrance music.

It was a bizarre choice from the FA Cup holders, as it is common for fans to chant ‘You Suck!’ to the tune.

The Gunners have under-performed in the Premier League this season, winning just seven games.

The song was played as their players emerged for the second half of their drab 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace.

Many on social media found the funny side to the song considering Arsenal’s fall from grace in recent years.

One wrote: “Finally, Arsenal have found the right theme song.”

The Gunners have not qualified for the Champions League since they finished second in the Premier League in 2015-16.

Angle, who has been involved in WWE for more than two decades, was also amused by Arsenal’s actions.

He tweeted: “Arsenal using my theme song. The only thing missing, due to COVID, is 30,000 fans chanting ‘You Suck’.

Perhaps Angle was unaware the Emirates holds 60,000.

The 1996 Olympic champion called time on his WWE career in 2019 with a loss to Baron Corbin.

It is not the first time Arsenal have used a WWE song.

Last July they ran out for the second half of their match against Liverpool with Triple H’s theme tune blaring.

The club’s PA announcer, DJ Selenki, is said to be a big wrestling fan – so it probably won’t be the last time we hear a WWE anthem at the Emirates.
