Keith Lee is reportedly receiving a new theme song for his match with Randy Orton at Sunday's WWE Payback pay-per-view. His entrance theme, in particular, has been widely criticized for being too generic, and the fans are calling for the WWE to revert to his old entrance music. It was noted by Arenataping that WWE Music has more freedom on the music that is used now that they're working with Def Rebel, as they are the sole publishing owners of tracks and trademarks by the group. It was added that the talents rejected the new theme songs offered to them by the company. It was also revealed that the official theme song for Sunday's Payback pay-per-view is Payback by Def Rebel.
