The CFO$ have been out of commission due to legal reasons having to do with their Kromestatik name. As a result, they’ve been unable to continue writing for WWE. As a few months ago, WWE hired Def Rebel as a replacement for them. Def Rebel is responsible for the new theme by Bayley, Io Shirai’s theme, the new theme by Seth Rollins as well, and several others. While the CFO$ wish to continue to working with WWE, it remains to be seen whether or not they’ll be able to do so going forward.
Botch Take: I was wondering what was going on with CFO$ and both Sam & David filled me in. David’s brother is a music obsessive like I am and he’d managed to keep track. Add in Sam’s google skills and this article was possible. As for the CFO$, I really liked their work. It was bright, punchy, and in-your-face – just like wrestling music should be. Def Rebel is doing fairly well to that end but CFO$ created classics (Asuka, Finn Bálor, and Street Profits have benefitted from their skills). We’ll see how Def Rebel fairs as time goes on.
