When I started this audio project it was Saturday afternoon and I happened to check news online and saw the breaking story that Brodie Lee had suddenly passed and it tore my heart out.
I was going to just scrap this audio project and maybe look at it another time, but I had been planning it in my mind for weeks and then realized that in wrestling, the show goes on regardless. So with quite heavy heart I started work on this and didn't stop until it was finished.
I do digital audio and have been an audio production guy for over 40 years. Some weeks ago I got inspired by Chris Jericho's Fozzy band arena anthem that's his AEW entrance. A group posted the arena audience singing which was during the last wrestling PPV before covid and I took their vocals and cleaned them up and isolated them, got them on tempo then combined them with the studio version of the song which I also, sweetened up a bit first.
Here's the studio version:
Here's the live arena singing it before even the music starts:
Here's the Meredith Bell-led choir in same event
Here's a screengrab of the digital audio workstation during the production of this.

I took the audio from all three and put them in my digital audio workstation. Here's what I produced, everything explained in the subtitles. Crank it.
