The identities of at least some of the infamous WrestleMania Backlash zombies have been revealed.
In one of the most surreal matches in WWE history, Damian Priest and The Miz fought in the ring while zombies served as lumberjacks outside. After zombies invaded the ringside area, the commentary team were forced to flee to higher ground.
While Morrison did his best to fight off his new adversaries outside the ring, he was eventually dragged off behind the barricade. In the ring, Priest nailed Miz with Hit The Lights to pick up the win. As Priest celebrated the zombies stormed the ring, seemingly eating The Miz while Priest made an Army Of The Dead logo appear on the screen above the ring.
After the match, Chris Jericho responded to the presentation, saying that it “set wrestling back 30 years.” The jab came after PWInsider.com reported that people within WWE thought AEW’s Blood & Guts match “set the business back 30 years” and that management hated the encounter.
Elsewhere, Jim Cornette was also highly critical of the match, questioning why so much effort was put into promoting a movie featuring Batista who is highly unlikely to ever return to WWE.
It has also been reported that The Miz sustained an ACL tear during the match. However, the severity of the tear is currently unknown. There is also no news on how long the former WWE Champion will be absent.
During the bout, Priest landed awkwardly on Miz’ knee, which he favoured for the rest of the match.
