“TIME TO PLAY THE GAME”
Whatever you think about Arsenal’s usual choice of music at The Emirates, it most definitely worked a treat on Wednesday night, when the Gunners enjoyed a 2-1 victory over Liverpool.
All the goals came in the first half of the game, with Alexandre Lacazette cancelling out Sadio Mane’s opener before Reiss Nelson found the decisive goal on the stroke of half-time.
Highlights were few and far between in the second half but the high point for WWE fans who were watching the match came as the players made their way back out on to the playing surface.
It's all about the game… and how you play it 🔨 https://t.co/mD0MgYO0vQ

Welcoming the teams back after the break was none other than the entrance music of WWE legend, Triple H.
Arsenal coming out to @TripleH’s music. I like it!
The lack of a water spit is upsetting.pic.twitter.com/ks5YIBOIsO

The song, The Game by Motorhead, is a favourite among fans of WWE but unfortunately, there was no attempt from either side to replicate Triple H’s iconic water spit.
For the most part, supporters got a great kick out of a trip down WWE memory lane, with many tagging Triple H on social media and jokingly suggesting that his entrance music got the job done against the newly-crowned Premier League champions.

Arsenal beating champions Liverpool after coming out to the Triple H entrance music proves that football teams need to utilise heavy metal more. #ARSLIV

I can’t believe Arsenal played Triple H’s WWE theme song against the “champions” when they were leading. Savages 🤣🤣

Make the Triple H music as Arsenal's entrance music a permanent thing at the Emirates, please.
