About

Fandangoing is a dance move in which participants point up their index fingers while humming the entrance theme song for the WWE wrestler Fandango.

Origin

The dance is named after the ring name of American professional wrestler Curtis Jonathan Hussey, who made his debut as “Fandango” during an airing of WWE RAW on November 5th, 2012. On March 18th, 2013, Fandango made an entrance to his wrestling match while dancing to his theme song “Chachalala” originally composed by WWE composer Jim Johnston (shown below).



On April 8th, Fandango’s entrance at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey was met by WWE audience members humming the tune of his theme song while pointing up their fingers. Following this event, the gesture soon became known as “Fandangoing," though it is unclear who coined the term.
