There is a chance that Johnston is still with WWE as the company has not made an official statement
Over the last 30 years, Johnston has created themes for the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, Vince McMahon, Brock Lesnar, Kane, The Undertaker and Bret Hart. He’s still been hard at work creating entrances recently with the likes of Baron Corbin and Jinder Mahal, but has been gradually phased out producer team CFO$, who makes most of the themes for current NXT stars and a number of wrestlers on the main roster.
