WrestleMania Backlash has been the scene of history making title changes and zombies serving as lumberjacks.
Yes, you read that correctly.
Earlier in the night, Batista, the star of new zombie movie Army Of The Dead tweeted a message to all WWE Superstars involved in WrestleMania Backlash. Batista wished everyone luck saying that while he couldn’t be there in person, he sent some of his friends instead.
After a Lumberjack Match was set up on RAW, John Morrison went to try and get the lumberjacks onside before The Miz and Damian Priest met in the ring. However, when Morrison got to the lumberjack’s locker room he was confronted by a room full of zombies.

What followed was 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.
