• Chris Jericho Takes A Shot At WWE Using Zombies At WrestleMania Backlash
At the WrestleMania Backlash pay-per-view, Damian Priest defeated The Miz in a Lumberjack Match.
The lumberjacks in this match were “zombies“, who were there to promote Batista’s new “Army Of The Dead” movie.
A fan tweeted the following to Batista about this:
“Hey Dave I love you, but this zombie sh*t on the WWE Backlash show was insulting!”
Batista replied the following:
“Wtf you telling me?!! You think I booked a bunch of f**king zombies. I’m on a damn plane! Shouldn’t you be tweeting Vince?!”
