Rowdy wrestling crowd's bizarre chants

Rowdy wrestling crowd send entrance music up the charts

A ROWDY wrestling crowd have been credited for sending one performer's entrance theme into the top of the iTunes charts around the world.

The music to introduce WWE's Fandango, who competes in a ballroom-dancer gimmick, has become a worldwide sensation since Monday Night RAW this week.

The song, Chachalala, has already hit number three on the Top Soundtrack Charts in America and was on the verge of cracking the UK Top 10, behind Taylor Swift's "22".

WWE.com has noted since Monday's show, which was broadcast on Fox 8 in Australia on Wednesday, sales on the song have increased more than 4000%.

It's all thanks to the rowdy post-Wrestlemania crowd at New Jersey's IZOD Centre.

The 16,000 strong crowd became a bigger story than any title change with their bizarre chants throughout the three hour long show.

They booed any mention of popular wrestler and movie star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, chanted for the commentators, referee, the ring announcer, cotton candy and wrestlers not seen on television in years, before getting caught up on Fandango's entrance tune.

They sung and danced to his song, by composer Jim Johnston, throughout his match and for the remainder of the night.

Footage has emerged of the crowd leaving the arena and humming the song into the car park and nearby train station.

Fans are now tracking the progress on Twitter using #fandangorevolution.
